Gideyup! Definitely watch tv! And a VCR in case I feel like putting on an old movie. Helps pass the time and I like being entertained while spinning those silly BTZS tubes. And always with a bottle of wine opened. Darkroom work is tedious - it is the resulting negative and print that makes it worthwhile. CD player is in there too if there is nothing good on the telly. How anyone can function with complete silence and nothing else but the sloshing sounds of liquids in the darkroom for hours on end is a mystery to me. To each his own (whatever works).
