Yes. We had a ritual back home. Thursday nights we'd eat pizza and watch television as a family. We would watch a series at a time, so it went something like this: Law and Order SVU, The Nanny, Prison Break, How I met your Mother, Family Ties, The Cosby Show...there were more, I just can't remember them all!
You would think that free to air TV would offer more family options, but I am so over the singing/ dancing/ cooking reality offerings. Funniest Home Videos is always good for a family laugh. Mythbusters is another good show that combines science, pop culture and humour. Otherwise we watch a nature documentary (or turn the TV off and play a board game!).
