有线电视台Talk Shows And Cable TV

2006-07-12 08:22

  CALVIN: So, are you pretty well settled in your new place?

  TOM: I still have to buy a washing machine and dryer.

  But otherwise I've pretty much finished moving.

  CALVIN: Does your building have cable TV?

  TOM: I'm not sure. I didn't check yet.

  CALVIN: Huh? How can you move into a building if you don't check?

  You don't want to live somewhere where it's hard to get cable.

  TOM: Why? I'm not a big TV fan. I watch very little.

  CALVIN: Well, I agree. Regular TV is lousy. I don't watch it either.

  But cable TV is excellent. Didn't you have it at your old place?

  TOM: My girlfriend had it hooked up for about three months.

  But I rarely watched it. I was too busy.

  CALVIN: What do you do for news?

  TOM: I read the newspaper. That's much better than cable TV.

  CALVIN: I don't agree. I think it's better in some ways.

  But CNN is great. With CNN, you have fast news coverage, and images too.

  And you can watch it while you're eating breakfast.

  TOM: Yes, I've watched CNN before. But I still like the newspaper better.

  CALVIN: Larry King Live is my favorite talk show.

  I think shows like his are excellent ways to hear different opinions about world events.

  TOM: So maybe I will get cable hooked up. Just to watch CNN, I mean.

  CALVIN: But that's not all you have with cable.

  There are a lot of things you can get. Do you like MTV?

  TOM: No, not at all. I don't care about that.

  I like Beavis and Butthead. They're hilarious.

  But I never watch music videos. They dry up your brain.

  CALVIN: How about the Discovery channel?

  TOM: Yes, I forgot about Discovery.

  I have to agree that's an excellent channel.

  And maybe, for the first time in history, it's a channel that does some good in the world.

  CALVIN: What do you mean?

  TOM: I mean, usually TV channels are only good for advertising products.

  In other words, they are good for making money.

  But the Discovery channel does a lot to show people how the environment is being destroyed.

  CALVIN: Yes, it does. I agree.

  TOM: I think the Discovery channel makes people think about protecting the environment.

  That is a great service to the future of the world.

  CALVIN: So you see: cable TV can be important.

  TOM: Yes, I suppose.

  凯文:你的新家都安顿好了吗?

  汤姆:我还要买洗衣机和干洗机

  但除此而外差不多都安顿好了。

  凯文:你家有有线电视吗?

  汤姆:不确定,我没检查过呢。

  凯文:什么?你没检查过就搬进去了呢?

  你不会想住在申请不到有线电视的地方吧?

  汤姆:为什么?我不是电视迷,我很少看电视。

  凯文:没错!无线电视台的节目都很逊,我也不太看。

  不过有线电视台就不错,你以前住的地方没有有线电视吗?

  汤姆:我女朋友装了三个月。

  但是我很少看,我太忙了。

  凯文:那你怎么知道新闻?

  汤姆:我看报纸,那比看电视还好。

  凯文:我不认同。我想某方面的确比较好。

  但是美国有线新闻网很不错, 随时有最新的新闻报导和画面。

  而且你还可以边吃早餐边看新闻。

  汤姆:我以前看过,不过我还是觉得看报纸比较好。

  凯文:赖瑞。金直播是我最喜欢的脱口秀。

  看他如何呈现世界大事的不同观点是很过瘾的事。

  汤姆:那或许我会装有线电视,我的意见是只看美国有线新闻网。

  凯文:但还不只这样。

  你还可以收看很多节目。你喜欢音乐电视吗?

  汤姆:绝不,我才不看咧!

  我喜欢它的卡通《瘪四与大头蛋》,好有趣喔。

  但是我绝不看音乐电视,那会榨干你的脑袋。

  凯文:那么探索台呢?

  汤姆:是的,我忘了还有探索台。

  我必须承认那是很棒的频道。

  而且很可能是有史以来首个对世界有所贡献的节目。

  凯文:什么意思?

  汤姆:我的意思是,通常电视频道只对商品宣传有利。

  换言之是营利导向。

  但是探索台频道做了很多节目,告诉人们环境正在遭到破坏。

  凯文:的确是。我同意。

  汤姆:我觉得探索台频道让人们意识到要保护环境。

  这对世界的未来有极大的贡献。

  凯文:所以你看,有线电台也颇重要的。

  汤姆:我想是的。
