tvShow most recent or highest rated first. Common beliefs in this section include:
on the the show Mister Rogers Neighborhood Mister Rogers was not only talking to me he could also hear me talking back to him and since my best friend was watching the show at her house if i yelled loud enough she would be able to hear me through her tv
When I was watching a film on the TV I supported "good guys", of course. When good and bad started fighting I strained all my muscles, clenched my fists believing that it would help "good guys" to win.
I used to think that if an episode was shown on the tv that the actors were actually acting it out again. Then I saw this episode of Father Ted and I knew the actor who plays Father Ted (his name escapes me) was dead. I asked my sister how they could get another actor that looked, and sounded, exactly like the previous one.
When I was younger, I asked my grandfather where did Harry Caray go during Cubs games.
You see, when Harry did Cubs games, he would split broadcasting duties for TV and Radio, both on WGN stations. He'd leave TV after the 3rd, work 4th-6th on radio, and come back to TV for the 7th, and finish the game out.
My grandfather told me he went across the street to a bar and had some beers with his friends. I used to think this was the coolest job in the world, go to a game, hang out with friends in the middle, then come back for the exciting part in the end.
I was very disappointed when I came up with the real reason. I think I still am.
When I looked at the TV Guide I thought To Be Announced was actually a show that was on for three or four hours at a time. I also thought it was a religioius show for some reason.
I used to belive that if u tried to look closely into the side of the TV, you would be able to see the rest of the picture
I used to believe that I wouldn't be able to be famous because my ex-boyfriends would go on television and talk about our relationship.
I used to think that I could break the TV and walk inside of it to be in sesame street.
I used to believe that you can see the part that is not captured on the television screen if you tried hard enough to peek at the sides of your television.
i am tweleve now but when i was between the ages 4-7, i used to think that when i turned off the T.V. or radio it would be on the same movie or song as i left it.
I remeber I used to believe that if i turned the TV set off the programme I was watching would still be there waiting for me at the exact same spot when i was allowed to watch the TV again later, rather like a video/dvd today
I used to believe when we first had TV that if a woman was playing a harp, she put her hand through the strings to play the other side
I used to think when you turned the telly off the program just stopped. Therefore you could continue watching it later on by turning it back on!
One time when mom had dinner ready and she said to turn the TV off and come to the table, I remember thinking the TV would pause and I could come back to it later. (Way before Tivo!)
I was raised in a catholic family and started at a catholic school. I knew I went to a catholic school and other people went to a public school. One day I was watching a TV and the channel was called "NJN - Public TV" I turned it right away thinking that it would teach me things that were incorrect (i thought public and catholic schools taught things differently)!!!
When i was little, i always wondered where the laughing and cheering would come from when we watched a sitcom. So i believed that it was other people like me sitting at home and we could hear them laughing through our television sets. So i used to talk into the speaker on the tv and say things so that people "on the other side" could hear me.
i used to genuinely think that black and white televisions would show old tv shows
When I was a kid of 5 or 6 I thought that the people performing on TV were performing live AND they were just waiting for me to turn the TV off so they could take a break.
i used to believe that if i was watching a cartoon on telly and went off for my dinner that when i came back and turned the telly back on the cartoon would carry on from where i had left it. the same applied for anything on telly.
I use to believe that some shows on tv the characters where actually puppets and people were behind my tv acting out the scences with their puppets.
Needless to say I wasn't the brightest child.
