    Does anyone else here hate television as much as I do? I think television is one of the largest factors making the "average" person around now fucking retarded. Anytime spent watching TV (except for possibly history / discovery channel, although if you read a book on the material a show covers you would learn a lot more) is just brain melt and a complete waste of time. I honestly think parents who let their kids watch TV for more than half an hour a day should be charged with child abuse.

    TV is outdated, has been for a long time, and with this new digital signal (which can be disrupted by passing cars) it's soon to die like all other old technology.

    Entertainment is therapeutic...

    There are some well written shows that I watch and will continue to do so...

    I also enjoy getting out in the great outdoors and surfing Algore's interwebs...

    As with everything, moderation is the key...

    Besides American Idol, Real World, The Hills, Survivor, Numb3rs, CSI, CSI: New York, All My Children, The OC, and Rock of Love 2...I'd have to agree with you.

    History Channel is just as bad now. Ice Road Truckers and the like.

    No.

    What's wrong with being entertained? I look forward to my handful of shows at night. My brain is mush by then anyway. As for only watching DSC or HIS, etc, who wants to constantly be 'learning'? You sound like my dad.

    If someone wants to sit in front of the tube (or let their kids sit in front of the tube) for hours on end . . . . that's their choice.

    House said it best, moderation is the key.

    But what about moderating in moderation?
