Let's Do The Time Warp Again

Going through "Brokeback Mountain" withdrawal? We can't guarantee any studs of Jake and Heath's caliber, but it looks like there may well be a few fake cowboy hotties (well, maybe not) to delight in when PBS airs "Texas Ranch House" from May 1-4. If you've never seen any of the previous PBS series of this ilk (ie, Colonial House, Manor House, Regency House, etc.) it's guilt-free reality television that's as thoroughly entertaining as it is educational. If you're the sort of person who loves visiting those corny living history museums ("Look mom -- she's churning butter!"), OR if you just like seeing modern-day whiners trying to rough it, this one will be up your alley. The episode guide on the PBS site promises stomach ailments and food shortages. Can't wait! -- Amy


  1. I LOVE these series. Texas Ranch House actually sounds kind of boring to me, but I'll watch. It probably won't be as boring as I imagine. Thanks so much for the info!

  2. Thanks, I won't miss it! My local PBS has been replaying Frontier House and Manor House. I call it- reality TV for history nerds!:>

    I LOVE your blog! Long time lurker, first time poster.


  3. Okay, so far I'm bored with it...not sure I'll keep watching. -- Amy
