Have you seen any American television lately? It seems that they are choosing story lines simply by price. The same goes for the director, actors and support personnel. The bottom line sells and the bottom line in American television is getting lower every day. The three major networks used to be respected names in radio and television. In this year of 2006 I suggest a reality check for those same names : ABC - A Bunch of Claptrap NBC - Nother Bunch of Claptrap CBS - Claptrap Baloney Snowjob The corporations themselves have been absorbed by entertainment and manufacturing corporations. We no longer get information critical of the other companies that own these companies. Here is an example of the type of entertainment being peddled by NBC : The Waist Deep DVD brings you into the violent streets of South Central Los Angeles. The violence in the Waist Deep DVD starts as ex-con/security guard O2 (Tyrese Gibson) gets car-jacked while his son is sleeping in the backseat. As the car jacker and now kidnapper holds the child for ransom, O2 has only 48 hours to come up with one hundred thousand dollars. With the help of his new found love Coco (Meagan Good), they hatch a plan to rob banks and take down gang leader, Meat (The Game). In the Waist Deep movie, the action never stops as it rolls through the gritty streets of South Central. I think a better title would be Waste Deep - how about you?
