Today, my dad got angry with me for not watching "Better Call Saul" with him, because he thinks it will help me with law school. He did this while I was actually reading for a class taught by the top health law professor in the country. FML

At least you're not studying to be a chemistry teacher.

I get mine from WebMD. According to my research the itch on my nose is actually intestinal failure.

WebMD said my finger sprain was cancer.

Ha.. Nicely played

I have a sudden urge to watch Breaking Bad...

Ha, fathers thinking they no beat all the time. Just explain to him, enlighten him and hopefully he will back off and let you study! Also, consider studying in library's if he persists.

Either he has a really skewed view on what lawyers should be or maybe he just wanted to spend time with you.

As a law student myself, I've been asked why I don't watch such shows. Apparently a lot of people believe it's better than hitting the books.

Uh, of course it's better than hitting the books. I watched the Hunger Games and now I understand how to run a country. I'm running for president in 2020, and you try to tell me that watching shows and movies isn't better than "learning" or "taking a class" or "being qualified to do your job correctly?" Pfft.

I like the way you think

I grew up watching judge Judy, now I'm a Supreme Court Judge. Plus nothing like watching a powerful woman.

you should broaden his viewing habits to Suits

I know your pain. I LOVE hearing people saying "Why don't just watch suits?". Yep, that will definitely help me learning about the 30-pages long judgement that set precedents.

Watched every episode of Macgyver, and now I'm an engineer. Thanks realistic, totally educational television series.

I think it was probably more of a bonding moment that he wanted and you missed and he was too proud to say.
