All there was was gray. Grainy gray. Sometimes shadows, sometimes-sharp clear images. As things warm up the sides come in, “turn that knob on the left, just a little. There. What’s that black line? It’s scrolling up. Stop it; turn that knob on the right. Can we get a little more contrast? Maybe turn the brightness down a tad. How come they put the two best shows on at the same time? Click the big dial, we can watch during the commercial. How come they both put commercials on at the same time? Three stations and nothing on. No, don’t turn it off, it takes forever to warm up”. Paid for with cigarettes and soap.
