Favorite tv :
I may like a few things, but TV is mainly a brainwashing instrument. I hate it! Usually I'm doing my own things with, my earphones on, while the rest at home is watching TV. I use to feel like a martian, you know?.
All the same I liked some adult cartoons, like Duckman (1st season's music was Zappa's) and now, although I don't even know when they are putting them, and just If my ears happen to be cold at that moment, I also like Family Guy, Futurama and maybe a couple of sitcoms like The It Crowd and The Entourage. Mostly, I find those adult cartoons very funny (sometimes I even split mi sides laughing).
