Saved by the Bell (First TV Obsession)
If you're between the ages 20 and 30 then you've definitely seen every episode of Saved By The Bell... six times. This cultural phenomenon is not born out of popularity but rather by circumstance. It didn't matter if you liked the show or not, back then there was nothing else on basic cable when you got home from school.
See, in the 1990's most Americans had to settle for either over-the-airwaves television (approximately four channels, one of which was PBS for god's sake) or basic cable (25 channels, one of those being Country music for god's sake). So, really, we didn't have much of a choice. Kids don't know how good they have it these days.
You either watched "The Bell," as it was called on the streets, or you left your television set off. Though, there were poor, starving kids in Africa who also didn't have basic cable so it wouldn't be right to let yours go to waste.
Not Applicable (Current TV Obsession)
This may seem like a cop-out, but I really don't have one right now. Believe it or not, I really haven't gotten back into the full swing of TV since I gave up watching television for the first 30-day challenge on this blog. Sure, I've watched a lot this month, but obsessed with one particular show? I think not. The fact that I cancelled cable service almost a year ago and have been relying solely on Netflix and Hulu surely doesn't help either.
