    society is getting dumber
    sadly tv is a part of the problem, not the solution. it will cater for its majority audience.

    :lol:

    I agree..TV is a bit shit at some point. BUT - there are 4567678 + programmes out there, so you can choose. And if you want some quality, you have to invest a couple of bucks in PPV/Timeshifting and so on.

    i always watch documentaries about interesting stuff. like yesterday there were 3 awesome documentaries about: prison gangs in some jail in america; ms 13 (HOLY SHIT! - such a crazy gang); hells angels + other motorbike groups.

    theres also abstract documentaries, like what would happen to us if the earth stopped spinning.

    every documentary is good if it blows your fuckin mind away.

    TV is shit! always has been.

    TV shows (some) are good.

    Its adverts and things like Simon Cowell that makes TV shit.

    I dont watch TV cos i fucking HATE adverts. I download all my shit like a sneaky pirate and watch it all back to back with no ads, like a boss
