A story about a mother who complains she doesn't have enough TV in her life, and the people from "Hook Me Up" who (Ugh!) ride to her rescue, supplying her with all manner of ways for her and her family to "vege-out" in front of a screen. Not for the whitedot squeamish!

I feel really sorry for the kids in that house. With a gigantic plasma screen tv in their living room and their mom's little portable tv that can work almost anywhere in the house, they don't stand a chance of breaking free of their mother's addiction.
Unfortunately, I'm sure this sort of situation - ubiquitous televisions in the home - isn't at all uncommon.

Was that really serious? I thought it MUST be a spoof! Oh dear me that's horrible.

Can you imagine her kid's pallour if their only form of exposure to light is the glow of TV sets.

I used to go out and play when I was a kid, I will encourage my daughter to do the same (albeit with more sunscreen on than I had)!
