Letter to the Editor

To the Editor:

I quit. Television isn’t worth it.

When you think a show is going to be on, it isn’t. And, nobody tells you ahead of time. And as for series TV, well, when did a season start only having six shows? The least series TV could do is show those six, then create another show with six and then go back to the first show and reshow those six and then back to second.

At the rate series are going, having four shows a year would be fine. Showing the same show over and over is boring. At least having a number of shows would give the viewer a chance to have something to look forward to.

I think I’ll read a book.

Pat Sadler resides in Jacksonville, Fla.
