We have a shabby television. It has a 9 inch screen and hides in a storage closet unless it's October baseball, March madness, or shuttle launches and landings. We line out to the LCD projector (like we do with dvd's) and watch on the silver screen.
It's a lot of fun rediscovering the wonders of the world through the eyes of youngstas. To 3 and 6-year old boys, it's hard to top a spaceship flying down from space. They are already anxious about seeing it piggyback to Florida on top of a 747.
So we set up the rickety antennae and fired up the beta waves but no sign of space flight. Fortunately, nasa.gov was broadcasting online so we caught that perfect California landing. Television never broke from the soaps. Doesn't space travel impress anyone anymore?
