Tv Or Not Tv
Season 1 | Episode 120 | Aired 04/13/2010
Frankie and Mike decide to see a financial planner. They are spending a lot more than they earn, so they need to cut unnecessary expenses. Things like insurance, gas and the orthodontist are on the chopping block until the financial planner informs them that those are actually “necessary” expenses. An extra cost would be something like cable TV. Now they just have to break this news to the kids.
Axl, Sue and Brick freak when they find out their parents are ditching the cable. Nevertheless, they decide to make the most of things. Sue takes on extra babysitting gigs to raise funds for her future modeling career. Brick reads books, which is actually par for the course. Axl tries to start a rock band with his buddies. As for Frankie and Mike, they’re spending all their TV-less time at the Bingo hall with Aunt Edie and Aunt Ginny. It’s not as bad as it sounds. The center square is a freebie.
