    NO! don't need it

    I don't have time for it and I don't like programs which are on ( they're repeated over and over again!). I watch TV only when I know, there will be good film which I wanted to see. I don't need to watch it when I want to know the weather or news because I can check it anytime I...

    Well Maybe If There's a Tornado Warning, of If There's a Spate of Boredom.

    But anything beyond that or a DVD of an obscure film makes me wonder why I even own one...

    The only time you'll catch me watching tv is

    when I'm at someone else's house, which isn't very often. But other than that, I don't watch tv at all. I mostly fish, hunt, ride four wheelers, go mud riding, work at a few chicken houses and that's it.

    No Cable For 15 Years

    I just think it's a waste of time.  It's been over 15 years since I've had cable.  I've never seen any reality shows.  I only know about them from the computer.  The mind numbing commercialism is what turned me off a long time ago.  I do rent a lot of...

    The Damage Is Already Done

    I am recently coming to realize the serious detrimental effects of television and video on the mind. After an extended period of time without watching any tv or video at all, I am personally astounded at the things my mind can do. I know that I have been complacent in the past...

    Why I Don't Have A Television

    So I don't have to be lectured on how to make my whites whiter or my brights brighter. So nobody tries to convince me that disgusting food is delicious. So I don't have to watch a grinning local news blonde with plastic hair tell me about some local goober who collects string. So...

    I'd Achieve This...

    if it weren't for Countdown with Keith Olbermann, The Rachel Maddow Show, The Daily Show, The Colbert Report, and Southpark (on occasion).  However, even if I didn't watch, I'd still sit in front of the computer and youtube just as much...

    I Did Once

    I used to watch TV. There used to be interesting shows on. Now every show is either a procedural drama, reality show, or a Damn singing contest. None of those interests me at all.

    Never, Do I Watch Tv

    I never watch tv. When I have extra time to be spent I read. Mother says that it is bad for you and girls my age shouldn't watch all that violence, inappropriate behavior and bad language. All a tv dose is turn your brain into mush. We don't even own one. We have recently...
