I hate watching TV. Even the news is focused on ignorant topics. Like "OMG Kim Kardashion (or however the fuck you spell it) got more butt implants and Nicki Minaj called out Miley Cyrus at the VMAs". Like I really could not care less about famous people. If I am watching the news, I want to hear about shit that matters. Even the TV shows they have these days are completely ignorant. I find myself watching more cartoon than anything. And no, that has nothing to do with my young children. ;) Cartoons for days.
I have not been Big on TV for a long time. However, in the last few months of having moved back to the Poconos in PA, I do watch the ID Channel, Investigative Discovery and once in a blue moon, a good true story on Lifetime movie station. I would say there isn't a lot so hot on the boob tube, but then again, it is anyone's choice to choose. Good luck. xx
There is A LOT of garbage on TV these days for sure... I have no patience for "reality" TV.
There are some good shows out there, though. I'm a big Walking Dead fan, and the new companion show is pretty good so far. Mostly I just watch Netflix these days tho. There are some really great shows on it! Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt is hilarious. Brooklyn Nine Nine is great. Lots more but I can't be bothered to think of them all haha
No, there are many shows that are great. I rarely watch the actual TV, just for sport's games, but I watch lots of shows online. Great shows right now are: Vikings, Game of Thrones, Hell on Wheels, Daredevil (it's on Netflix though), American Horror Story, The Walking Dead, Black Sails, Homeland, Modern Family...
Obviously there's crappy TV shows and programs, but I don't think before it was better, the thing is that now there's way more channels, therefore more chances of finding a crappy show, but also more chances of finding a great one.
Nope it's not just you lol, and you know the funny thing all the actual good shows like Firefly or Terra Nove they cancel it's like when something actually good pops up they cancel it and give us the crap we now call TV.
Screw all these new shows, the older ones and the classics are were it's at.
Firstly, the title doesn't make sense. You can't use "Anymore" like that. Secondly, there are few good TV shows that are still of quality. I am not including cartoons because I am assuming you are not including those. Typically, I watch Game Shows such as The Price Is Right, Jeopardy, Let's Make a Deal and Wheel of Fortune. As for actual TV Shows, I cannot think of any.
95% always was crap, you just start to notice more when you are older.
What makes a work of art good is that it leads you just a bit, not so much as to confuse but enough to intrigue. Most writers just draw from an ancient bag of tricks, once you've seen them a few times it's like watching a magic show from backstage, where you can see how all the wonders are just simple illusions.
