I thought that everytime somebody would watch a movie ro a reapeat of a TV show that all the actors in it would have to stop whatever they're doing and magically come together and act out the movie or show for us! I wa slike wow they must get sick of performing the same thing over and over again. Then I really confused myself when I was like "what if more than one person wants to watch the same movie at the same time"? That goes along with believing people were actually IN the TV!

I believed that everyone in the world could watch me on t.v. if I did commercials in the mirror. I used to spend hours doing "breck girl" commercials from the age of 5 to about 10 in my bedroom mirror. My brothers still call me the breck girl and my signature move at 38 is still the "hair toss"...

When I was younger, I always thought that everything you saw on TV was made on a closed set. Even if it was outside, I thought it was a set. I remember thinking they made the trees look pretty real, wondering how they did it.

I used to believe that when an actor or actress was shot or stabbed in a movie, they were really hurt...I couldn't imagine why any actor would sacrifice themselves so much for a silly TV program!

When VCR's first came out, I was 8 years old. I was SO excited to be able to fast forward through the commericals and could not figure out why the remote wasn't working!

For many years, I believed that all television shows (except cartoons) were performed live in real-time. I also harbored a belief that the people on the television could see you through the screen, but didn't react (because they were professional actors, after all).

When I was little I used to think that they policed what you watch on TV and know who's watching what. When my family sat down to watch smokey and the bandit even though it was an ADULTS ONLY movie I thought we were gonna get in trouble with the police because I wasn't an adult

my mom brought a vcr home for the first time. i had never seen one before. she told me that it would let us watch movies on our television. she set it down on the floor in front of the tv. i ran over and looked at the back of it to see where the movie would be projected out of the vcr and onto the tv.

I used to believe that if you sat to close to the T.V. to long your eye sockets would pop out and stick to the T.V like super- glue. Needless to say when my dad said back-up from the T.V., I listined. The dumb thing is that i believed this untill i was about 7 years old

I used to believe that if I turned off the TV or changed the channel, the whole street's TVs would change too and that our neighbors would be so mad at me and come after me. Once, my mom turned off the TV and I threw a fit saying that the neighbors were going to come get us. She just laughed at me though.

In the early eigthies when i first heard about satellite TV, i thought it implied cameras mounted on satellites filming other countries and people, for us to watch.

top belief!

When I was around 8, I used to read the TV Guide very carefully in the hopes that SOMETHING good would come on the three channels we had. I would always come across this show called "To Be Announced". It seemed to come on a LOT, so it must have been important. I was convinced that since it came on late at night or really early on Sunday, it was a public affairs program, probably promoting Black pride ("To Be ANNOUNCED!", like "I am SOMEBODY!"). I tried to watch it a few times, but it was always a different show. When it finally dawned on me, I think it was the first "forehead slap" of my life.

I used to believe that there were people in the TV that watched the shows and laughed at the funny parts, and thats why on some shows you can hear other people laughing (which i now know is the studio audience)
