Short for "video valium". To be sedated by a movie or banal TV show that:
A: Puts you to sleep
B: Is distracting or calming enough to relieve anxiety
This is especially true for DVD commentaries.
"Not now honey, I'm watching Seventh Heaven. You know it's my vid-val."
"Sorry, I was sleeping so I couldn't get your call. I was watching the producer's commentary to The Secret. It was total vid-val. Put me right out!"
