tvShow most recent or highest rated first. Common beliefs in this section include:
I had no clue what re-runs were. I thought that all lvie action shows were shot live in the studio, and I was shocked that they actually recorded them and showed them later.
i thought that all of the shows on tv where played live even when someone died. sad, i no.
As a young child I believed that actors didn't look anything like the characters they portrayed. They were all wearing elaborate rubber masks (think Mission Impossible) designed to make them look like the writers' imaginings of their characters.
There was this show in the 90's about Mary-Kate and Ashley being detectives or something. When I was really young I would always sit through the whole episode looking for Kate. (I thought Mary-Kate was two names. Like there was three girls, Mary, Kate, and Ashley.)
when i was little i used to check behind the tv to see if i could find the place where all the people got in at.
I used to beleive that tiny people climbed in my tv and couldn't get out one day i had my fathers screwdriver and was trying to 'free the people' and my mum came in and told me off i thought i was like moses and shouted 'LET MY PEOPLE GO' she burst out laughingand told me the truth then i went bright red and sat in the corner and sulked and my mum teased me all day saying 'look katie someones coming out of the tv!!!'
I used to believe that a little man in our t.v. ran a film of whatever movie was on. So when I left a really good movie I would unplug the t.v., come back hoping to see the rest of the movie where I left off. Never really worked...
When i was a kid i saw a drawing representing a Proteus holding fire on his palm. That led me to believe for years that any fire seen on tv and movies is fake and cold to touch.
After stubbornly not leaving when ER came on TV, my mother tried to make me feel better about all the blood and gore by saying "it's ok, its not real"
For years after i thought blood and guts and even my brain wasnt real, and real people were hollow inside.
I used to think people didnt actually kiss on tv,i thought that the computer just made it look that way.
I remember watching a baseball game and thinking that if a foul ball hit the TV camera, a baseball would come through the TV in every household that was watching that game. It seemed like this would be a great way to distribute certain items (like food) around the world.
i used to believe i was spongebob squarepants in a previous life.
once i told my bro when he was 6 i think that if you jumped into the tv you would actually be in whatever show you were watching. he tried it lets just say my parents were not too impressed
I used to want to be the same age as bart simpson or any other fake people on tv. And then I found out that some fake people stay the same age
For several years I used to listen to the TV news reports of guerillas attacking people in Guatemala and Mozambique, but thought they were talking about gorillas.
I thought the guy who got shot at the beginning of Gunsmoke was replaced every week by a live guy.
I used to think that the laughter on TV sitcoms were really people at home laughing. Sometimes when I was by myself, I used to laugh either really loud or when I wasn't supposed to at my TV.
I used to believe that the TV, before buying it, went to different places and recorded the events there. Then the TV would be bought by my parents and we would watch its "travels".
I believed that Archie and Edith Bunker (from the TV Show ALl in the Family) were my grandparents. I remember getting excited and announcing to the family that "Grandma and Grandpa are on the TV!"
i assumed that when I turned the TV off, the show would stop, and never understood why, when i turned the TV back on after dinner, my cartoons were gone and the evening news was on instead. :(
