    Why is tv so shit?

    Post by Guest on Thu Jan 26, 2012 4:51 pm

    I swear, I haven't watched tv regularly for 6+ years, it's just all gone to the shitter.

    The channels I watched before, namely, History Network and Discovery, are both utter shit, all those cartoon networks I enjoyed as a kid - shit, animal planet? Not a single wild animal in sight, comedy network? Fuck that, there is no comedy to be found.

    I could go on, but I think my point is made. I was more wondering if my feelings were shared by the people of the playmaker?

    Today I download only the programs I enjoy. I have a TV but it is only ever on the news and weather channels.

    Basically the same, though I'm not sure how shit tv is since I barely watch it. shifty

    The tv is for football games, news, and sometimes 60 Minutes and Jeopardy.

    Yeah, besides football and baseball and the other football, you'll be lucky to find me watch more than 3 hours of tv a week.

    Nothing interest me. I think television is now a reflection of our society. Lazy, unimaginative and conformist.

    Yeah I don't watch a lot of TV anymore other than My wife & Kids ( Laughing ) & Sports & occasionally the news.

    I watch a couple of shows but they're all downloaded - hate ads.

    when I was at school I used to watch at least one show per night (when Lost & Prison break used to come on). prefer to use the net when I'm bored now.

    Surely you guys have History, Discovery channel and all that jazz in the shitter?

    Only difference is that IIRC in England a military channel is split from history?

    It still counts on TV. Cable TV shows are fine, Mad Men, Game of Thrones, Boardwalk Empire, Community, etc. etc. just because they are available online doesn't mean that TV quality has declined. I see nothing here.

    Yeah there are quite a few history/discovery channels:

    Discovery - a bit of everything
    Discovery history
    Discovery turbo - cars and shit
    Discovery science
    Military
    Nat Geo
    Nat Geo Wild

    Most of the time they're filled with crap though and a lot of stuff gets repeated.

    I only 'watch tv' a couple of times a year, when I'm visiting my mother. I just watch the shows I like on the net when I'm home, I'll usually pick a show and watch through all it's seasons.

    I don't really watch much TV other than sports and interesting documentaries.

    These are the shows I stick to though:

    Boardwalk Empire
    Game of Thrones - Still need to watch the second season, but I'm going to read Clash of Kings before I do that. shifty
    Borgia - The Tom Fontana/Canal+ version
    Spartacus
