Here's something that messes with my head if I spend too much time thinking about it.
There are all these TV channels, starting with the good old free-to-air ones and their numerous digital affiliates.
Then you've got those channels on Foxtel (let's assume you have the premium package).
On top of that you can throw in the likes of Netflix and Stan who, while they don't really have channels, they have content.
Here's the thing, they all need programming to fill them up. All of them. Sure, a couple will stop transmitting late at night but almost all are going 24 hours a day.
That's a lot of TV shows. A lot of TV shows. And that's what messes with my head; the sheer volume of stuff that needs to be created to feed the beast that is each channel.
Of course, that means there will be hundreds of shows you'll never see, shows that will be gone before you even knew they had been on (the downside of freedom of choice with TV shows is that sometimes you miss the chance to actually choose them).
It also means there is going to be a lot of rubbish out there. Such as Timewasters, which is taking up space on ABC Comedy.
The pitch sounds great; a comedy about a fourpiece South London jazz band that find themselves sent back in time courtesy of a urine-soaked alley and have to work out how to get home.
But I hated the show - couldn't last more than five minutes of the one episode I watched. It's been tagged "award-winning" but I can't for the life of me find what award it supposedly won. Least Funniest Comedy Show of the Year maybe.
It's an aptly-named show, because it felt like it wasted my time.
There was another show I found plugging up a half-hour hour in the ABC comedy schedule which was much better. That would be Ghosts, which is about, well, ghosts.
An old lady who lives alone in a rundown pile suddenly dies and the ghosts there are happy because now the place is theirs.
But of course some distant relative is found who decides to live in the house while renovating and the hapless ghosts have to try and figure a way to get rid of her and her husband.
They have to abide by the usual ghost tropes, such as not being able to interact with the physical world (though it's never explained how they manage to sit on chairs or lie on beds), with the exception of one of them.
He has the special talent of being able to push over vases. If he tries really, really hard.
It's enjoyable, entertaining and definitely not a time-waster.
