What ever happened to television? Feb. 9th, 2013 @ 02:19 AM Reply

I don't watch tv to much but judging from what my little sister watches on tv, it's gone shit.

Nick was always cartoons but now it's about music, actors, and merchandise. Not to mention there is only a handfull of cartoons now a days + they all suck boar balls.

Disney is the same with nick, just practically no cartoons.

Cartoonetwork is meh. They still air some of their old shows but still half of their new shit sucks.

But my current question right now is, what do you think of tv now a days?

I haven't had TV in four years and I don't miss it at all.

That's your problem. Watch something like History channel or Science channel, or Comedy central (kinda)

Really, those three, MTV, CMT, and TBS are the only truly shit channels on television. Any channel with *noun* boss or *noun* rescue, and any channel with shitty reality shows, is a bad channel, with a few exceptions.

I replaced the TV with Youtube/Internet and vidyo games; although I will still periodically catch a show or two that interest me on reg TV

It all depends on the channels you watch. Some channels are bad, some channels are good. As for tv shows, the quality has greatly improved over the years. Now that the technology is here and it's cheaper to buy a decent camera to record with, more studios are capable of producing shows and since it's cheaper, which makes it a smaller risk. That's why movies were so much bigger than shows years ago. Studios relied on big blockbusters and sequels because it was less of a risk and they brought in money that covered the production of expensive cameras and other equipment.

My TV can record programmes, so I can skip the adverts by fast forwarding. Really helps when your laptop has shit quality picture when the scene is dark in a movie/tvshow.

Dude, even when you're a kid disney channel isn't worth watching.

The only reason any kids I knew watched Disney is because they were perving out on the ugly girls on their shows.

Congrats, you've grown out of children's TV. In a few years there'll be kids your age looking back with nostalgia on the shows you're complaining about now, just like you're doing to the ones you grew up with.

I like that you only referenced cartoon channels being shit.

I think tv is alright. There's better alternatives, but tv isn't shit.

It is lame nowadays. The only reason I own a television is for gaming.

I remember back in the day when we had good, clean shows like My Mother, the Car, and C.P.O. Sharkey.

Now we have this crap like The Walking Dead, and Breaking Bad.

Things were better in the old days, I tells ya!

When you base your opinion using a small sample size of TV channels, that's pretty much means that your point is rather half-assed at best.

As for TV itself, all I got to say is that you need to know where to look. There are still a lot of decent shows on TV now, and it's not like the TV executives {the competent ones at least} aren't trying to make quality shows anymore. Of course, the fact that the Internet/Netflix has the vast majority of said shows available generally makes it more convenient to watch it that way, and people tend to like things that are more convenient.


Just stop worrying, and love the bomb.
