Okay, I have to admit it. It's embarassing, but here it is: If I'm flipping through channels, and happen to stumble across 7th Heaven, and stop to watch for more than a couple minutes -- I'm hooked. I have to watch the whole epidode. It's like . . . it's like a study in anthropology. I mean, these people have ideas and values and thoughts that are so completely foreign to me, I have to see how everything ends. Unlike most tv shows, I actually can't always predict how everything will turn out.

I mean... I guess not, since you're technically a girl and stuff... but still, we expect better out of you. What's next... Dawson's Creek? Buffy the Vampire Slayer?

this is fucking bullshit. first.....kerry--if you watch mega-gay programming, just admit it. don't try to paint a picture of superior plots and suprise endings. that show blows cock 'n balls.

neil--i don't watch that stupid show. although i can respect that some people choose to do so.

vince--buffy and dawson's creek have superior plots and super suprise endings. they are great. (as you can see--'super suprise endings' are much different than 'suprise endings')

I hear that. It's like when I'm driving in the car, flipping the radio stations and some song comes on my some pop-artist bulimic chick, and I listen out of morbid curiousity. The music isn't good, in fact I usally hate it, but I listen anyway, to the "I'll love him forever because he buys me things and I have no self-esteem" crap once in awhile.......

Now THAT'S a TV Show
Y'know. . . my problem with "7th Heaven" is that the premise is that the dad is a pastor, yet the moral/theological lessons are so pedestrian: Lying is bad. Underage drinking is wrong. Giving to charity is something you oughtta do. Is this the best we can do?

Announcer: This week on "7th Heaven," the Camden family is thrown into a turmoil, when Simon reads Nietzche's Beyond Good and Evil and comes to question his faith's place in the universe.

Simon: Dad, I just can't stay in my religion anymore. Not now that I know that God is dead, because a loving God wouldn't allow a universe based on cruelty and sadism!

Rev. Eric: You're young! You don't understand! Descartes was right! God must exist, because humans can understand, through reason, that we are flawed, and the existence of imperfection implies the existence of a model of perfection used as a yardstick, and that model of perfection must be God!

Simon: Stop talking! Nothing makes sense!

Annie: Don't you two see that you're tearing this family apart? Why can't you both come to the realization that Kierkegaard was right: Everything Man comes to know creates a larger world he doesn't know, and it is in that realm of the unknown that God exists!

Announcer: Meanwhile in college, Matt's understanding of the suffering of the proletariat leads him to a newfound understanding of the significance of his bourgeoisie family in his society.

Matt: My God. Marx was right. Religion is the opiate of the masses.

Announcer: Next week. On an all-new "7th Heaven."
