Here’s the thing.
I love TV – I love watching my favourite programs and taking in as many new ones as I can.
And yet time is against me as I try to juggle watching TV, reading books, seeing movies and reading graphic novels … and doing life (my boyfriend is pretty keen on me interacting with him on a regular basis).
The sensible thing then would be to cut back on the number of TV programs I watch, right?
Haha you’re hilarious … NO.
What happens is I see new trailers, like the three presented her and my immediate thought is “New shows! Yay!”; I’m the proverbial kid in the (televisual candy store) and frankly with shows like these in the offing, why wouldn’t you be?
Archibald’s Next Big Thing follows the adventures of Archibald Strutter, a chicken who ‘yes-ands’ his way through life. Though living in the moment often leads him astray, Archibald always finds his way back home to an egg-shaped house he shares with his three siblings, Sage, Finley, and Loy, and his trusty sidekick, Bea. Archibald’s Next Big Thing is a fresh comedy about the importance of being present and celebrating the journey, not just the destination. With each twist and turn, this gangly, happy chicken shows everyone around him how important it is to get out of your comfort zone and see the best in everyone and every situation.
