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

    Yeah, that's what people want, values forced down their throats at every opportunity.

    The Chinese try this, and every movie they make that is supposed to show this, flops so badly it's embarrassing.

    Otherwise you opt out like so many are doing today, yet the youth stay engaged while hellywood knows this all to well, so they produce enticing products that target their audience for whom they know are basically left to their own devices in a world gone mad. Then we are scratching our heads when our youth fall into the pit of hell while we weren't paying attention anymore.

    Values should come naturally, and when we see them being re-enforced it tells us that we are on the right track in life with our society. What is your idea of values, and what is it that you are opposed to when it comes to values that have been accepted in this nation for centuries minus the bad stuff ???

    So, they produce stuff that people watch. Shocking behavior.

    Every generation grows up and looks behind them at the new generation coming through scratching their head wondering what the fuck went wrong.

    It's natural.

    My tv's are basically computer monitors for streaming whatever I want. I do have a nice antenna hooked up to one that I use for sporting events mostly. No cable, waste of money.

    I don't watch TV to have values stuffed down my throat.

    People like watching stuff that connects, and often it's stuff that isn't always the right values.

    We have a generational rot going on, and to deny this is being selfish really.

    Yes, it's been happening since the Roman times. Your parents generation thought the same about your generation.

    C'est le vie.

    Anyone else miss The Fall Guy with Lee Majors and Heather Thomas? What about Stingray with Nick Mancuso?

    I don't watch TV, except for some ID-channel criminal-mysteries things. So-called "reality" TV does not appeal to me. "Honey Boo Boo," "The Duggars," "Duck Dynasty"? Pageant shit? "Say yes to the dress?Jersey Shore,? come on . Why would I waste my time? US TV, with a few exceptions, is a pile of crap. Most of what I watch is British.
