    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...

    Dont Have Time

    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.

    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...

    Brainwashing

    I feel television is literally the best brainwashing device ever to be invented. When the majority of people watch television they begin to produce Alpha and Theta waves in their brain. Alpha waves are usually admitted while you are drowsy, thus causing you to become more...

    I Think Tv Is Ruining Our Society

    I think it's very degrading.  All the sitcoms depict are extremely emotionally unhealthy relationships and the problems they cause because that's what' "shocking" or "entertaining".  I was at the laundromat today and there was a tv on, and these two...

    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...

    Creative Hypnosis

    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...
