Mary Tyler Moore Was Content With 9-Inch Black & White TV In Time Before We Lost All Control Over Ourselves

I recently watched a rerun of Mary Tyler Moore from about 1972. I saw Mary’s TV. It was a battery operated black and white with maybe a nine-inch screen. It was not Texas-sized like everything is today. It was small. 

Lou Grant came over and watched a fight on Mary’s TV. He did not care at all about how big the TV was.

I looked at that small TV and wondered why we have to have such big televisions today. I did not come up with a reason because there is no really plausible explanation.
