    It's Too Easy

    It's too easy to just switch the TV on and then drift from one programme to another and before you know it life was what happened while you were busy watching TV.  When I think of all the things I want to do in my spare time, watching TV comes pretty far down the list. ...

    Boring

    Honestly I find most of the shows on tv these days quite boring and repetitive. There are a few exceptions but even the shows I really like get a bit old after a while. I would rather read a book than stare at a television so I can't really relate when people freak out about...

    I do like some television programmes

    that concern history, animals, nature or some comedy but other than that I prefer listening to the radio. It is more relaxing I find.

    Kill Your Tv

    My father was very strict and pretty unconventional. TV was against the rules. We had a TV and a VCR, movies were allowed (rarely) but TV never. At one point, when I was a curious pre-adolescent girl, we were living in Brazil. Soap Operas or 'Novelas' are very...

    Waste of Time

    There are a few shows I watch with my husband out of habit. They are entertaining, but I always have the nagging feeling that I could be doing something productive. I could go the rest of my life without a TV and not regret it, as long as I could watch movies.

    Hardly ever, I haven't had cable in over 5 years

    either haha on purpose my choice, to make sure my kids were focusing on school work every day instead of TV. I watch the occasional movie with my kids, but no TV. I do miss watching the news or certain shows but I just deal haha

    I dislike television.

    Look at it there, burbling away to itself in the corner, unregarded by anyone. Low mentality drivel which does nothing to improve, educate or otherwise enlighten us. Pointless programming, endless self appointed celebrities continually pushing their products. Mundane...

    Boring

    I have always found most of TV to be boring.  I gave myself some quidelines way back and have stuck with them more often than not.  Any show that uses a laugh track I will not watch.  I will not wrap my life around a TV show.  I have broken this rule twice...

    It's a Lie, You Can Use the Tv Without a Remote

    Usually because my sister is glued to it. Once I nicked the remote so she could change channels, I walked in ten minutes later to see she was happily using the box under the tv to swap channels, grrrrr, I was told that would work by someone. All it meant was she had to see right...

    Not Really Missed

    Very Rarely

    I have a Netflix account,

    which apart from sports and the odd repeat of The Bill, I tend to watch TV on there, even then it's maybe two hours towards the end of the day. Unless I'm in binge mode of course, like I was whilst watching Breaking Bad. I read much more nowadays. TV bores me more often than...

    Most of it is just utter ****.

    Too many 'reality' shows, sitcoms that aren't funny as the classics, property programmes etc. BORING. I only really watch news programmes and live sporting events nowadays. Unless there's a good film on.

    Ever since I got a computer April 2008 the T-V has taken a back seat. I only watch about three or four shows per week on average. At least with the computer I can make my own entertainment.....

    Never Missing Much!

    At home I hardly ever watch TV. The news is about the only thing I watch once in a while. DVDs are my main viewing, when I borrow, or download. I like TV when I visit friends and hey have tuned into something foreign.
