短篇英语作文：电视和我的家庭TV and My Family
With the advance of science television has played a vital part in the day-to- day life of the people in developedordeveloping countries and its influence is simply astounding when I was young my family did not own a television set; so whenever we were free my younger sister and I would slip to a neighbors where to watch their TV awhile Al though TV programs in those days were generally inferior we still had a good time for as young and indiscriminate children we were interested only in novelty and excitement Not until my family had bought a television set did I quit the habit of fooling around with my younger sister then this wonder of scientific wonders did do us a great service we now had more chances to chat with each other in front of the box I hope our television companies will keep on upgrading their programs so that the viewers can be benefited both morally and intellectually I t is our conviction hat television in addition its entertaining aspect should be educational as well.
Many people think that TV cant teach you anything and most TV programs are just silly. True, there are a lot of shows that are anything but good.

With the rapid progress made in mass media the television set has become one of the most important appliances in a home and there is every indication that TV is playing an increasingly important role in our daily life. TV can provide us with he quickest and most convincing information. We can stay at home and know what is happening around usorhundred miles away. Watching TV programs has become one of the major activities in many homes today. A wide range of TV programs can cater to different tastes. My folks always sit side by side after supper in the living room to watch evening news and, while listening to the newscaster, air their own views.
