It hasn’t happened yet but someday someone will develop the ability to provide smell with our television programs or movies. There are just some things that my family would not be allowed to watch when Smell-O-Vision comes to television.
One of the top five on my list would be Animal Planet. I hate the smell of animals when walking through the zoo. Don’t get me wrong. I am an animal lover and have owned several pets. At one time in college I worked in a pet store while the owner went on vacation. I just don’t like a concentrated area of animal smells.
The next on my list would be CSI. I love the show but they get into their work a little more than my nose would enjoy especially the autopsy room.
Another favorite show at our home has been Dirty Jobs. The host often tells us how bad things really smell but I doubt that it could compare with the actual smell entering my livingroom.
Dr. G is always an interesting show on how she solves medical mysteries but just like CSI, I can do without the autopsy scenes and smells.
Hoarders would also top my list especially the shows where they have hoarded animals and they measure the urine level as toxic to humans.
This is my short list for television shows.
I’m sure that you could add plenty more to the list if I started adding movies to my list.
Now I have a whole other list for the show that would definitely be allowed like Rachel Ray and all the other fabulous cooking shows. A person could gain weight just smelling their wonderful creations.
