I can’t afford cable, so I watch a lot of public television. To be honest, at this point, I think cable would be wasted on me. I can’t imagine making a return to having all of those channels and still never being able to find anything to watch. Between my three different PBS stations, I can generally find something interesting and thought provoking to fill my time when I should be writing (but that’s a different blog post.) One of my current favorite shows is America by the Numbers with Maria Hinojosa.
I don’t typically review television shows on this blog, but I really like this one and hope that you will be inspired to go watch it and then join me in asking PBS to sign Hinojosa on for a second season so I can keep watching her show. This is a very important series that will make you think about what it really means to be an American.
