It’s the 8 o’clock hour. I live in Los Angeles, have Time Warner Cable and am home with the boob tube on. There’s a handy feature with this particular cable provider that allows you to set up a favorite channels list. Then when you want you can opt to view only the programming on those channels. I have roughly 50 channels. All the shows I like come on these channels, so its great to not have to bother scrolling though all the other channels. Anyway, here’s a snapshot of several shows that were top contenders for my viewing pleasure.
Sundance Channel: “Appropriate Adult”
This original scripted event tells the story of British serial killer Fred West and his relationship with his “appropriate adult,” Janet Leach. In the UK, an “appropriate adult” is appointed to sit in on police interviews with children or vulnerable adults to safeguard their interests.
