In response to the Brian Lowry column "The Problem With Men" (Jan. 12, 1999), OMARI CHRISTIAN informs us he watches neither Xena nor "any of the other shows with cheap plots based on a woman in tight clothing".
[snip] There are many types of men. Just because we enjoy seeing some violence or sports occasionally and TV execs cater to our desires, it doesn't mean we are all football-crazed morons crushing beer cans on our heads. It's in our nature to be attracted to sex and violence. I, for example, am not very fond of "Frasier." While it is mildly humorous and it won Emmys, it doesn't have the general appeal and magnetism of shows like "The Drew Carey Show," "Just Shoot Me" and "Two Guys, a Girl and a Pizza Place." I would never watch "V.I.P." (I tried) nor "Xena" nor any of the other shows with cheap plots based on a woman in tight clothing. Now if Pamela Anderson did a cameo on "Two Guys, a Girl and a Pizza Place," that would be a different matter. I don't think I am the odd male out because I like "good" shows (according to male friends and relatives). I put "good" in quotation marks because I like the shows whereas the next man may not. The next man's favorite show may be "Jerry Springer," a "bad" show, though as bad as it is, I challenge Lowry to watch g at the craziness of it all. OMARI CHRISTIAN Los Angeles [snip]
