Even the ads are important.
Sounds like my childhood, on steroids.
I was one of those "latchkey" kids that spent too much time glued to the tv, in the absence of any adult supervision when I was growing up. (Very little to no homework in those days, or I didn't bother doing much of it). Everything that was "important" to me in those days, was on the boob tube after school and prime time. It was as if I knew more about tv show characters, than my real life family and friends.
