What sounds more like a past time of the unemployed than watching repeats of repeats of repeats of Diagnosis Murder? Well that is exactly how I am spending my days, and productively I am sure you can imagine.
However, now that I have joined this world it is no longer as exciting as it was when you were a child off from school with a bug and blagging the extra few days to enjoy watching television all day and having no work to do.
Now you may think this is going to becoming depressing because when you were a kid the allure of Diagnosis Murder is not as enticing now that I am racked with guilt as I try to find a job.
But no, it is more that it is a repeat of an episode I can remember word perfect and already know who the killer is.
For example today I saw John Schneider, better known as Superman’s father in Smallville, turn up and already know what the next few episodes are building to and how they will beat it.
So a word of warning to any young readers, if you think you are living the high life by watching old shows when you should be at school don’t do it otherwise you are ruining your future.
