…Dead or Alive!
It’s another Friday night, and me and the boys are in the basement chillin’ out. I’m sitting on the couch watching the toob while Alex and Adam play on their Little Tikes slide. I’ve had enough news for one day and ain’t really into another episode of The King of Queens, so I put on a great classic western: Wanted Dead or Alive with Steve McQueen.
The dvd starts spinning and the show begins. The intro trails off into the 15-second opening where the camera pans away from the sawed-off Winchester on McQueen’s leg, as he walks to the board in front of the sheriff’s office and pulls off a wanted poster. As the theme music begins, the boys turn their heads and point at the screen, then run over to the couch and climb up into my lap. They actually sit and watch a good portion of the show with me, talking and pointing.
It’s pretty interesting, really, that of all the things on TV, both network and dvd, that we’ve put on for the boys, they’d find this late 1950’s black-and-white television series the most appealing.
Are they my kids or what? 😉
