My 20 year old son asked me how could we watch TVs that sat on the floor. Seems strange now.
Indeed.

I don't think I could manage to watch a floor-model TV now.
And don't forget the usual type of 'remote control' for those older sets:

1) Take your ass off the couch.

2) Walk over to TV set.

3) Manually use hands/fingers to turn dial, (or push physical button on console.)

I mean, doesn't anyone remember the oft announcer phrase (back in those days) of:

"Don't touch that dial!" ??
