I have a long history with “The Apprentice”. When I was running a job club for folks who were not familiar with business issues, I used to encourage them to watch it. Of course, the first few years were very different from what’s being shown now; They actually had sort-of-celebrities then. Most of the time was spent on solving their business problems or issues; As time went by more and more of the time was spent in the useless Boardroom transactions- no educational value whatever.
This season the “celebrities’ are a joke. And as for Arnold Schwarzenegger, he is a parody of himself. Sorry, but saying “You’re terminated” instead of “You’re fired” just isn’t exciting. I fell asleep. I won’t be watching it again. Get a glimpse while you can. This show is so bad it won’t be around long.
Or you can hold a Bridge Tournament with everyone bidding “one no trump.”
In this uncivilized age, no one knows how to play bridge. Would be a great idea for a fundraiser!
There you go!!
Maybe you should read Jerry Mander’s 1977 book “Four Arguments For the Elimination of Television” (still in print) for edification and enlightenment.
I’ve heard of Jerry Mander. If it ever stops raining I’ll check it out at the HumCo library.
