Hi, I'm Bo Lumpkin and I've been thinkin'.
Actually I've been doin' a lot of thinkin' and some talkin' to R.E. Cline (ya'll might have to try and picture that).
Old R.E. writes a guest column for me every once in awhile and he watches a lot of television and is somewhat of a TV critic. What we've been discussin' was who in the world watches the so called reality television shows.
Survivor was a pretty good concept for a summer fill in but this thing has been goin' on now for several years. Is anyone really watchin' that? I can't say much about the rest of the shows because I have never watched them. I don't care about a bachelor who tries to select a fiance from a couple of dozen desperate women.I don't care about people whose younguns don't know how to act so they have to bring in a Gestapo nanny.
What I really want is a good clean TV show with a plot or some entertainment. I can kind of enjoy the talent search shows but I do think some of these folks need to be weeded out before they humiliate themselves in front of the whole nation. When someone gets on one of these shows and tries to sing and he has a voice that sounds like a pine knot in a sawmill or a nail on a blackboard you have to believe if they have any friends at all someone would let them know they have no talent before they get that far.
I'm Bo Lumpkin and I've been thinkin', I guess that is enough of me gettin' in R.E.'s business and any way I've got to go. It's almost time for the Andy Griffith Show. Whatchall been thinkin'? Leave me a comment.

  1. Clean humor is hard to find these days. Would like to see reruns of Red Skelton, Ernie Kovacs....
