I find TV today so uninteresting that I prefer to watch Threes Company re-runs

    Maybe I am just getting old fast and I enjoy the simpler days.

    That is all. Thank you for your time.

    My daughter asked me the other day, where are the cartoons I grew up watching, yes where are they now ?? Exactly.... As we go farther and farther down the rabbit hole, everything seems to get more and more evil in it's intent... I mean whether it's in movies, shows, cartoons etc it's just impossible to deny. My daughter is a young mother, and she notices the changes accelerating from when she was a child while watching her children growing up in the environment she is monitoring for them today.

    Suzanne Sommers was hot! Yes Late night TV, SNL, the sitcoms, reality shows are all pretty much crap. I'm thinking of getting one of those HD TV antennas. If I can get sports and local news I can dump cable.

    I don't watch TV. Sometimes I watch TV shows on the computer, but the TV remains turned off, for months at a time, gathering dust.

    But I only watch TV shows as a sort of social relax kind of thing with other people.

    I like a few shows, but they are in the off season. House of Cards was great, but now with the Spacey scandal I feel dirty watching it. Maybe the new season without him will peek my interest.

    I started to watch House of Cards because of the scandal. I don't care what the actors have done, if their work is good, then it's good. However by season 3 it all became a little ridiculous and I couldn't watch it any more. Watched Game of Thrones season 1 - 7 in about a month's binge, not my fault but my other half's.

    Yeah it's so weird how they just keep cutting their own throats in the business of providing good clean family entertainment that is quality and re-enforces our mainstream values, our responsibility, our self disipline, our productiveness, and our awareness.
