WSB-TV Channel 2 (Comcast 03, or affectionately “Death Star 2” in local TV World) will be launching The Hawaii 5-O channel! Freakin’ awesome as that’s my favorite TV show of all time. I just think about its famous opener – the first ever TV show to use quickie-zoom camera techniques juiced-up alongside that pounding, vaguely ominous surf music – and it still gives me the shivers.
OK, I got just a little carried away there, but DS2 will be launching Retro Television Network. This is fabulous, just fabulous news, especially for those, and they are legion no doubt, who were raised on weird-household farms & schemes run by hippies who didn’t allow television to pollute the air of their freakabodes, nor their children, throughout the 60’s and 70’s.
Of course, given a choice, I’d rather just download it from somewhere other than Cox Plantation so that we don’t have to continue to feed the Cox family their dino-media fois gras.
