Title explains it all. I used to be able to sit in front of the television for hours on end and not change the channel and be enjoyed throughout (unhealthy and gross, I know, entertaining, yes.)

What do you think?

It's not complete crap, but a lot of the stuff airing currently is. I can't stand reality tv.

It sounds like all current forms of media are taking a turn for the worst.

TV, music, movies, etc.. Rarely do you find a great movie nowadays, or a TV show that doesn't get mind-numbingly boring to watch.. or a band that doesn't strum 3 chords per song and dress "hot" to attract young female fans.

The original Pokemon was the last good show to air on television. Everything went to shit starting with the Jhoto journeys.

Yeah. I know what you're talking about... When I was 10 or so, I could watch anything and be entertained. Now, with ABSOULUTELY EVERYTHING I OWN BREAKING, I need to resort to television for entertainment. I don't even have access to the internet. Only on certain occasions.

Well, I'm going to go watch the same episode of Scrubs or King of the Hill for the 20th or 30th time. ):

Meh, all I watch is the Discovery and History channel, also CNN. Not much for TV any more, but it used to be cool. Bugs Bunny, Road Runner, Pokemon, Fresh Prince, Drew Carry. I miss being a little kid

EDIT: Clone High, Undergrads, Mission Hill. I miss them

yes, it has been ever since they canceled Clone High.


That show was amazing. Unfortunately the dude who created died or something. We will never know what happens after they all get frozen. It haunts me.

I've just grown to accept that there will probably never be anything that outdoes Death Note, as most everything seems to pale in comparison.

Television's fine, and you're all way too young to be shaking your walking stick as you give the "back in my day..." speech anyway.

No adverts, Top Gear, Mock The Week, Have I Got News For You, BBC News, I'm pretty happy . I can't watch TV for ages though, just the programmes I want to.

There are a few good shows/channels (Office, Mythbusters, History Channel), but for the most part, the tv collects dust now.
Is it just me, or are modern gaming consoles and games getting boring.
I still play DOS games sometimes! But I set down the controller of a 360 in mere minutes of picking it up.
It's like Superman reading the teachings of Jesus. The two greatest musicians on Earth hath combined forces. I officially quit music, as it has reached it's zenith with that cover.

I know it pissed me off that they ended the series with "to be continued..." no doubt for me that it was easily the best thing to come out of MTV.

everything started going downhill when i turned 12, 3 years later still watching the same episodes of south park, mythbusters, futurama, family guy, the simpsons, kingof the hill and that 70's show i know every word to almost every episode


but out of curiosity one day i decided to watch nothing but new cartoons

chowder: what is that ****?
misadventures of flapjack: was that supposed to make me laugh
total drama island: it's a cartoon....reality show (combining the now two worst aspects of t.v.)

all in all not fun, my next journey: disney channel
#22
no its not crap.

some shows i currently like: House, Breaking Bad, King of the Hill, South Park, Daily Show, Colbert Report, Mythbusters, Dirty Jobs, Survivorman, Man vs. Wild, Deadliest Catch, CSI, CSI Miami, Monk, Nip/Tuck, Rescue Me.

plus some older shows that have reruns on, like Malcolm in the Middle, Full House, Fresh Prince, etc.

it certainly seems to be going bad to my eyes, but i'm probably just missing the great childhood shows. god damn i miss good nickelodeon. 99% of my tv watching (not including olympics) is now devoted to scrubs.


My mind is going. I can feel it.

I lost faith in television when Goku rather anticlimatically let his spirit bomb go after episodes and episodes of yelling and panting. I mean really, Goku, REALLY. The hours you spent drawing the essence of nature from the planet was something you could've told the producers to edit out. I just wanna see blood.
The below is false.
The above is true.

There's still some good stuff on TV but yea most of it is crap.
I see a lot more commercials and "copied" programs now.

The reason I'm going into the TV pro. field is to try to change some of this and bring back good TV.........

I think its always been crap. Books FTW

Couldn't agree more.

The only problem with books compared to TV is the relative effort involved in acquiring them.

Also, downloading the best TV shows is the best way to go. Things like Black Books, that never get shown these days.

I don't even watch TV anymore, it's so sickening. There's a few shows that are remotely interesting, so I just find them online, namely House, Scrubs, and a couple anime shows. The only time I might watch TV is for the Grammys or something.

It turned to crap a long time ago... All that ever seems to be on are various 'reality' shows or sh*t with apparent celebrities you haven't heard of.

Thank god for sports channels...
