Commentary: A pleasant surprise

(note: this article was created on the Saturday of the third day of June for this calendar year)

I was happy to see the words "Mister Rogers' Neighborhood" in the guide to the main broadcast channel for WSRE-TV on a World Wide Web site affiliated with them this Saturday, especially after being reminded of the times I enjoyed watching the program referenced by those words by a marathon of it on a World Wide Web site named Twitch since the Monday of the fifteenth day of last May (coincidentally it had just ended this Saturday*). Even though the channel for WSRE-TV may have it only once a week, or every Saturday during the first half of the hour of 5:00 a.m. to be exact, I would still watch it at that time since I was usually awake by that time on a daily basis in recent times, and the only other program I usually saw by that time on Saturday in recent times was a local news program for WKRG-TV (it would be a great alternative to the news program (named "WKRG News 5 This Morning: Saturday", by the way); no offense to the persons required to work on that program, but I truly think it would be a great alternative since I doubt many folks who want to see a news program at that time on a Saturday anyway). I hope it eventually leads to it being broadcast every day, possibly in more convenient time periods (I would suggest broadcasting it sometime between the beginning of the hour of 3:00 p.m. and the beginning of the hour of 5:00 p.m. from Monday through Friday and sometime between the beginning of the hour of 6:00 a.m. and the beginning of the hour of 8:00 a.m. from Saturday and Sunday); not only through the main broadcast channel for WSRE-TV, but through the main broadcast channels of all of the TV stations for Alabama Public Television. Having it broadcast every day would be great not only for folks like my self who had seen and/or heard episodes of it on a regular basis when it was still in production, it could possibly be great for folks who had never seen and/or heard an episode of it and folks who may need to see and/or hear episodes of it again in order to learn from it examples about how to treat other folks and other living creatures (the world could possibly be a much better place for every living creature if all of them were to do so (even though such a possibility may not happen any time soon, it could still happen at a steady pace).

(*the marathon was advertised as if were set to have every episode of it, even though the number used in reference to those episodes in advertisements like the ones on the site used to stream the marathon ("886") differed from the one used in descriptions of the program itself ("895") on sites like the Internet Movie Database)
