We don't have a TV, but watch stuff every now and then from the computer. Last night was episode 1 of Jamie Oliver's Food Revolution. The gist of the story is a young British Chef comes to Huntington, WV to change the eating habits of the most obese and diseased people in our country. (Mike and I lived in West Virginia for over a year and it was scary!)
Yes, there's the usual television melodrama to keep you engaged, but the stats are reinstating my food values big time. It's easy to get caught in a bubble, not only to isolate yourself from everyone while farming, but to get absorbed in the crowd that already believes what you believe and eats how you eat. This can be said for any belief system, but man, always good to re-expose yourself to the other side of it.
