Who was it that called Television a “Vast Wasteland” many years ago?” Well, nothing has changed over the years except that Broadcast TV has gotten even worse with age. Once upon a time we had Carol Burnett. Now, there is no one on Broadcast TV with even one percent of her talent. Now, we have “Reality” TV. It’s garbage. I would rather watch reruns of old shows than any of the idiotic junk that is being crammed down our throats today. PBS is our only refuge. My favorite Mini-Series is “I, Claudius”. I Love all the Broadway and related broadcasts. “American Playhouse”; “America Masters”; Masterpiece Theatre”. I Loved “Carousel” and “Sondheim ’80″. I am hoping that someday you will be allowed to bring us a full scale production of Mr. Sondheim’s “Follies”
