Tv Challenged

I have never seen a single episode, nor even a fragment of an episode, of

either THE SOPRANOS or SEX IN THE CITY. My cable company does not include

HBO as part of its basic service. Since I regard most TV as hog swill, I am

not going to pay extra money to watch any of it.

On the one hand, I naturally feel smug about this, as the time I would waste

in watching these programs is spent in more improving pursuits. (Hold on:

black ten on red jack — Yessss!)

On the other hand, I am plagued by the thought that I may be like a late

16th-century London gent fastidiously declining to join in the unseemly mob

scene down at the Globe Theater in Southwark…

Anyone care to offer an opinion about these programs?
