Sometimes he surprises me by reading something on the television but other times he can't see a thing. We have all sorts of funny vision things in the family so there are a lot of contributing factors to this. Anyway, he spends 85% of his time in front of the television. I love nothing better than to see him enjoying something because I worry that he gets bored and therefore depressed. He loves things that are PG and especially things that he is familiar with from his past. I have Hulu Plus and Netflix and am looking for television shows or movies that he would enjoy. Often I'll put something on and realize that in order to follow/enjoy it you would need to be able to see details that he obviously can't make out. Has anyone else had this problem or have any suggestions? We've exhausted Frasier, The Laurence Whelk show, Wings, Doc Martin...
