There are times in everyone's life which represent turning points: seminal moments which offer us the chance to go in one particular life direction or another. Most of the time we don't necessarily recognise them without hindsight: only looking back down the road do we see where the road forks. And yet somehow I sense that my decision as to whether or not I watch a TV program, just advertised as coming on next, called Amazing Medical Stories: Half Ton Dad, represents some sort of point of no return.
THOUGHTS: Holy fuck is that guy actually a doctor and if so WHAT THE FUCK is he doing on this show? I mean I'm watching it but I'm sitting on my carpet with a bottle of wine, not rattling around with a motherflipping MEDICAL DEGREE.
