Notes on TV (and Life)

By RD Heldenfels Published: April 13, 2006

Caught up on some viewing this morning and will be posting later about, IMHO, the greatest ''Lost'' episode ever, as well as ''The Amazing Race.''

I've had my say about ''Commander in Chief'' in a column you can find here. I know some of you have posted comments on the blog about how much you like the show, but I can't agree, at least not when it comes to a couple of new episodes I have seen. But I've done my pounding in the column, so I won't hammer it more here.

Yesterday, I was at the bureau of motor vehicles so my younger son could take his driving test (he passed). As we waited for the paperwork to be done, we heard one of the uniformed officers say, ''This is not 'Who Wants To Be a Millionaire'! You don't get to use lifelines here.''

Turns out a young man sitting at one of the written-test machines was talking on a cellphone while taking the test. I don't think he was getting answers -- in fact, once warned, he said that he had to end the call because ''I'm taking a test'' -- but it still seemed to be an odd moment for multitasking. Especially with a sign by the BMV door forbidding phones.
