We didn't watch TV much at all as kids.
We were always outdoors, doing stuff. Growing up on a farm.
My favorite show in Australia was Skippy.
It's about a famous kangaroo in Australia.
Yeah, he was a real kangaroo.
He's a bit of a hero,
he was a hero of a kangaroo,
he would always help people out and he was a savior.
As a kid, I thought it was pretty cool.
Kangaroos just go (clicks tongue).
That's it, then they jump away.
No, no, we had one little TV, it was black and white,
the real little one, and where we were from,
you only got two stations
until we were about ten or something,
and then we got four stations.
2016, what do I watch?
I watch a lot of Discovery Channel stuff,
I love the Sopranos, I don't know
how many times I've seen the Sopranos.
It's probably my favorite show ever.
And Gandolfini was such a talented actor.
No, I watch one episode at a time, mostly.
I don't have the, I'm staying with friends,
and they don't have the on demand
or the Netflix, or something, so
I just watch it when I can.
My favorite character ever, probably, on TV,
would be, it's reality, but Steve Irwin.
I loved that dude, and I was very sad when he died, and...
wish he was still around to do his great shows and stuff.
