tvShow most recent or highest rated first. Common beliefs in this section include:
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. :(
I use to believe Mountain Gorillas were attacking people in Columbia because of the news mentioning gorilla attacks.
I used to spend my week-ends at my Grand-Ma's and spend a good amount of time in front of the TV. In the evening we would inevitably watch the weather forecast. I was convinced that the man on TV got to decide how the weather would be the next day. I was extremely puzzled by the rain. Why would he ever want rain ? Then I understood: my Grand-Ma had a garden with tons of vegetables and fruits, so that must be why, people like her needed the rain, and the man on TV was just making them happy too...
When i was young i used to believe that if you broke the tv screen open and jumped in you would be in whatever tv show or movie was on at the time
Up until a few years ago I used to belive that Tony Robinson and Timmy Mallet were the same people. You can imagine my boyfriend's delight whilst watching Time Team, as I continued to remark on how surprising it is that Tony Robinson has managed to forge a serious presenting career after being known for so long as a wacky kids TV host. I still get confused now!
I used to think "Hulk Hogan" was really "Haul Kogan" before I knew his name!
I used to think that i really would go blind if i sat too close to the TV and I would ask my friends moms if they would take care of me if I went blind
When I was a kid, I used to believe if you were watching TV, and you turned it off, it paused.
i used to believe that i couldn't see the ladies head from the Powerpuff Girls because i had a small tv in my room. then my mom got a big big BIG tv for the living room and i saw it was just the show.
when i was little i thought that if you walked up to the tv and tried to look past the edge og the sreen you would see more of the pic but when i was watching barney and actally tried this i was sad cuz i couldnt see the bird that had flown off screen.
when i was little i use to think that the tv showas and comercials were all done live. i could never figure out how they got everything perfect, untill i got older and learned that the shows were recorded.
i used to believe dragon ball z was real
and namek was in another dimension
and every show on tv was real
i used to have very strange beliefs. i used to think that everybody could read my mind and all the people on t.v. were actually real people who got sucked in and had to stay there and act for the rest of their lives! i also remember i used to watch a show called "buffy the vampire slayer"(and i still do) and i would actually believe i was a real vampire from that show and would act really evil and my parents almost took me to therapy because they thought i was possessed!!
When i was about 5 i was convinced that the tv and radio broadcast the same thing and i used to tune the radio to corespond with the tv channels.
As a child I believed that the ratings on TV like Y7 and PG13 meant that it was illegal to watch those shows before you were that old. I spent most of my 7th birthday watching show rated Y7.
i used to believe television was just another window in our house. i used to talk to the tv. i thought sesame streeet characters were just my neighbors. i was so proud. somehow, i felt that they dont hear me or they dont care what i say, so i shout to them sometimes. i was so disappointed when i got to visit my cousins. "they're your neighbors too?!"
My mom used to watch the television programs about criminals all the time when I was younger, so I decided that I should try watching them too. Every time I saw a reenactment of a crime, I thought someone had actually caught the original criminal in the act and filmed it. I always wondered why that person couldn't have just called the police....
