With no Internet and no cable, the only external input into my apartment is via broadcast television. Now, this is Los Angeles, so at least half of those stations are in Spanish, and pretty useless to me. The other half (minus my three PBS affiliates) seem to always be playing infomercials. For instance, I think I've seen the Miracle Blade one fifteen times in the last two days. At times it's on two channels at once. And the result? Those knives look amazing. I want a set.
