Because my mum went on about violent TV influencing kids, and since I didn't have TV 'till I was 10, when I was about 5 I really believed that anyone who watched Power Rangers would grow up to be a murderer or sociopath or something.
I never talked to people if they told me they liked the show.
My mom used to tell me that when the people on the news said 'goodnight' they were talking to children and it meant that I *had* to go to bed.
I used to believe that the tv show: "Alló Alló" was called "In order of appearance", because in the end of the show it says "You have been watching: (in order of appearance)" and then the names of the actors. I must add that I'm Norwegian and did'nt learn any english untill I was about 7. Still I get the same feeling when I happen to see the show.
I used to believe I was one of the Power Rangers (the pink one) and thought I had her powers. I even bought everything pink to be more like her! Now I hate pink!
I used to think soap operas, or TV dramas, were real life stories.
when i was little i used to watch the tv show fresh prince all the time. if i saw a black man walking down the street i would always say "look, its fresh prince!"
When watching the show Are You Afraid of the Dark at my grandma's house, I would always sit with my feet under me, in fear that a clown would come out of the TV and tickle my feet and that I would pee my pants.
I once thought that there were little mice under the wheel on Wheel of Fortune making the wheel move
When watching shows such as Americas Most Wanted or Unsolved Mysteries, I would get angry during reenactments. I thought what I was seeing was the crime videotaped and I could not understand why someone didn't stop it.
When i was young i used to believe that if i smashed the T.V. screen, and i crawled into the T.V. i would be where ever was on the T.V. So when i was watching batman i thought i would end up in Gotham City.
I told my dad this and he freaked out, and i quote "NO NO NO NO NO NO, If you break the T.V. its just a bunch of wires in there, and then the T.V. will be broken and we wont be able to watch our shows anymore, so PLEASE dont break the television, I cant afford to buy us a new one."
When I was about 6, I thought that the actors on the TV show were real, and tried sending a letter to the blue power ranger. Also at this time I thought just putting the person's name on the letter would get it to them.
I used to become VERY confused when I was little and my mom would watch crime shows. Whenever there was a reanactment I would ask my mom how the directors do that, because I thought it was the actual crime taking place. I would ask her how they knew where to be to film it and why they never tried to help the victim. She would tell me to be quiet so she could hear the tv, this went on on until I could read. XP
I thought that Father Guido Sarduche, from SNL, was an actual priest, up until I was in my 30's! So embarrassing.
I thought that Joey Jeremiah from Degrassi Junior High had a weird name that goes Joey Gerroll-Myer
As a child, I didn't watch TV: I only heard people talking about it. As a result, I used to believe that there was a children's TV series set in Australia called 'Skippy the butch kangaroo.'
When I learned to read the TV guide, I thought "To Be Announced" was the name of a TV Show.
I thought it was like "To Tell The Truth," and eventually I convinced myself I had heard it introduced with that same kind of deep male narrator voice:
I USED TO BELIFE THAT TV SHOWS WERE REAL
I used to believe that Barney the Dinosaur was real, the school where it was filmed was real and the kids in it actually went to that school. For years I wanted to live in America and go to that school just so I could be in Barney and be friends with these kids!
I used to think that the cars won on 'Wheel Of Fortune' were only borrowed by the contestants, who got to drive them home, but then had to drive them back to the next contestant could win it. (back then, all cars looked the same to me)
When you here studio audiences reacting to things, I used to think this was other people at home watching. I also thought that if I laughed loud enough or shouted things, they'd be able to hear me!!
