Where do you usually watch TV programs/shows? [Why?/Why not?]
Well basically, I usually watch TV at home because I hardly do that if I do not have a longer period of time than, say like, a few hours and for me, I spend most of my free time at home. I am quite a home person.
What’s your favorite TV programs/show? [Why?]
CCTV’s Daily News is my all-time favorite which I always watch with my parents and even my grandparents sometimes. We Chinese people have been nurtured with a habit of watching the daily news at 19:00 after supper when the whole family spends the coming half an hour getting to know how great the achievement has been made by our motherland and how miserable lives foreigners are having. This is almost a piece of behavior art but certainly in an authoritarian way. Love it.
My favorite TV program is The Roast, which I cannot fully express my passion about it but I sometimes feel like concealing this hobby. This show is basically about a bunch of celebrities separately cursing the victim of the night in succession. The language they use really opens up my vision to the great potential of human language. I have never imagined such malice dwelling in our language. Literally a culture shock.
Are there any programs/shows you don’t like watching? [Why?/Why not?]
Of course. I’ll take the Daily News brought by CCTV as an example. It occupies half an hour of a night, from 19:00 to 19:30, which should have been used for more interesting shows especially when many people have only such a short time for leisure after a day’s work. But still, we Chinese people are haunted by the boasting news about our great motherland. What propaganda.
Sure, The Roast is kind of painful to watch. The dirty talk coming out from celebrities gets dumped on a victim of the night with nobody caring the slightest about how he or she and the more general public feel about it. Just a bunch of lunatics coming together for a modern freak show. Alas.
Do you think you will watch more TV or fewer TV programs/shows in the future? [Why?/Why not?]
肯定的回答：Yes. I think watching TV really broadens my horizon. So many places that I cannot see for myself and stories that I can never hear about are presented in TV programs in a well-designed way. Even better, as a person of few hobbies, I can afford the time to watch TV as much as I like.
否定的回答：No. Since I am a student relentlessly preparing for some serious examinations, I cannot indulge myself in such enjoyment and entertainment. Though it is relaxing to sit in the sofa with nothing in my mind but a pack of fried chips in my hand, I still have a bigger and more rewarding plan for the time.
