20. We have one step above Basic Cable, so we get one movie channel
with no commercial breaks; it has something good on now and then. And my wife likes some of the stuff on PBS, although as we all know, it's rapidly being corporatized. What I really like to do is take laps around the channels and watch in horror as I see what is being bought and sold on the American infotainment market. But as I read these responses to my OP, I'm thinking that I may cancel the goddamn thing after all, and rent a movie now and then.
