As a kid, I watched PBS every day for shows like Sesame Street
, Mister Rogers' Neighborhood
, and others. During my teenage years, my local PBS station became really cool and started airing Doctor Who
, Blake's 7
, The Prisoner
, Red Dwarf
, and even Space Precinct. Added to that were the various cooking shows, This Old House
, and even The Joy of Painting
, and I guess I was watching my PBS channel more than any other back then.
These days, though, I hardly watch PBS at all. I eventually grew out of the kids shows, all of the British sci-fi imports went away, and real life frequently gets in the way of other shows I might still want to see.
But my local PBS station has its digital outlets, and I can find many of the PBS cooking, do-it-yourself, and travel shows on the Create channel. Periodically, I'll tune in there.
