Old man

Today is my (much older) brother’s birthday.  Buying gifts for him is usually pretty easy, since we tend to have a similarly warped sense of the world.

Except when it comes to certain TV shows.

For some reason, my brother developed a love of long, drawn out, romantic, historical dramas, ones which are normally targeted at women.  Of course, recently this means Downton Abbey.  He jumped on the craze a little late in the game, and needed to spend a couple of days catching season one on Netflix.  Unable to stand the suspense, he then borrowed Nana’s season two DVDs and spent the next several days holed up in his basement.

While I may not understand his penchant for these types of shows, it did make getting part of his birthday present a little easier …

    It’s called “culture.” Not all of us can spend our days contemplating the deep meaning to be found in Star Wars (Did Han shoot first? Oooh, I don’t know – which version?) or playing with Legos. Some of us actually prefer the finer things, you know, like books.

    Downton Abbey, arguably the best series currently in production, speaks to those of us who enjoy actual literature. Somehow, if they added a space ship and some aliens, it just wouldn’t be the same.

    And tell me you wouldn’t enjoy someone diligently brushing your dinner jacket as you prepare for the most laborious part of your day (eating dinner).
