I found myself watching television less and less since I entered college back in 2004 and it was reduced to absolutely zero during a six-month stay in the United States in 2008. Until now, I am much happier sitting with a book on my lap than facing a television screen.

Every now and then, however, I do watch some shows during my 'couch potato moments' but I am very selective about them. They are more on cuisine, culture, travel, history and anything that makes total sense for me and enriches my mind. If these shows were put into writing, they would be something I would definitely read. When I watch, it should feel, for me, like seeing a magazine come alive... like watching a book come alive in movies or in a theater production.
