I Dont Like to Watch Television

Personal Stories, Advice, and Support 246 People

    Just My Opinion...

    Television numbs the mind... so many people tune in to see who will win American Idol or The Next Top Model but no one bothers to tune into CNN to see what is going on in the REAL world... I think today's media is dumbing us as a society... I stopped really watching TV about 5...

    Nothing On Worth Watching

    We have satellite and yet I can flick through the entire selection guide and find nothing to watch. TV has been so dumbed down. Even the "educational" channels have started showing rubbish. No problem, I have plenty of books and let's not forget that giant library...

    Not Much Anymore

    I use to all the time, but since I only have like six channels I hardly watch tv and I quite enjoy it. I do spend too much time online though, but by not having to watch certain shows I find myself free to do other things like work out of be on here :)

    The Real World Is More Interesting

    I mean ... why?  The sitcoms, made-for-TV dramas, BBC/National Geographic/History Channel "specials" -- even the sports events -- are pathetically obvious lowest-cost, lowest-common-denominator wrapping for advertising, be it overt or subliminal.Research studies have shown that...

    Chewing Gum For the Mind

    I do watch TV, but selectively.  You really have to hunt for quality.  House, Law & Order, My Name Is Earl, The Office, The Closer.  But wow - 90% of what's on is so bad you feel ashamed of yourself for watching it - especially so-called "reality shows...

    TV

    As I get older I find I watch less and less of tv these days.  I very rarely even turn it on.  I just find it plain boring because you can almost predict the outcome of what is going to happen and most shows are all the same.  I find I now turn mostly to...

    No Control Over Camera Angles

    When you watch TV, you have no control over camera angles whatsoever. That can get frustrating at times. TV is so non-interactive. You  cannot tell the cameraman what to point to.

    Television stifles the brain.

    I don't watch the TV because it stunts the growth of imagination. Children are apt to become lazy and overweight from watching too much television. One day I hope that TV will be controlled by an organization that controls how many hours and shuts down. Reading is a lost...

    Can't Stand It

    Watching television, in my opinion, is a complete waste of time. For many, many years, humans survived excellently without television. There are other sources of amusement and information rather than a propaganda-spreading, mind-numbing tube of cathode rays. I simply refuse...

    Creative Hypnosis
