Sixty minutes of programming on a major network devoted to farming and things like live coverage of "livestock exhibitions and harvest festivals".

Clearly, you've never seen RFD-TV. I get it on Dish Network.

I used to watch the cattle auctions. The auctioneer barely spoke.

He was that fast, it sounded like bumblebees.

actor, no, I've never seen it. But I've been exploring the website and it's going to be my new favorite network! Right now I'm missing Cowboy Flavor. I could be learning how to make BBQ Prime Rib Of Lamb, Blistered Brussels Sprouts and Apple Peach Gingerbread. And I should watch Dakota Life since I've been dreaming of moving there recently.

I'll bet people thinking I'm kidding.

We just watched the 1949 "All the King's Men," the one with Broderick Crawford and the brilliant Mercedes McCambridge. I hadn't seen it for years; it's a brilliant movie. One thing that struck me, though, in the crowd scenes is that American people actually looked different then. The DVD had previews of the Sean Penn re-make and the people in those crowd scenes, though they had the same facial types, still somehow looked like modern people trying to look old-fashioned. I mean, it could be argued that Penn has much more the right facial structure than Crawford, but he still looks modern. What is that? Is it color vs. black and white?

BTW, Penn just can't hold a candle to Crawford when it comes to rabble-rousing.

My 91-year-old mother loved RFD-TV. I have no cable but now you tell me I can stream it?
