Well, what passes for "country" music nowadays is pretty doggone poppy, IMHO.

I think that $14.95 plan is for a rather low-speed service, probably not even as fast as the phone company's DSL service.

It definitely is a top draw, even though it is by no means top drawer (more like bottom shelf).
And I think someone...

Wow. And I thought the reason Verizon is shelling out the big bucks might be that it was impressed with the high-class, ultra-skanky content that AOL's Huffington Post has been featuring lately.

I despise the ads that NBC ran for "The Blacklist".
They tried to make murder and gangsterism into something humorous.
Not funny at all.

"Bonanza" seemed less polished than "Gunsmoke". Of course, CBS was the top network for many years.

That's the problem with all of the cable companies.
They never want to tell you what the real price, the regular non-discounted price for anything is.

"Gunsmoke" was pretty good in its later years, when it downplayed the gunfights.
