In 1825, the great French gastronom Brillat de Savarind said,
“Tell me what you eat, and I will tell you what you are.”
Today, in America, we can safely say,
“Tell me what you watch, and I will tell you what you are.”
The French may love food.
The Italians may love opera.
What we love is TV. We are TV culture. It defines who we are.
