For me TV is a funny thing.
On the one hand it showcase some of the world’s amazing talent by creating some phenomenally good drama/films/documentaries.
But…that make up less than 1% of what is on the TV schedule. More channels have just brought more shit to our screens and this “i’ll do anything to get on TV” attitude is destroying society.
I don’t know about you but when i’ve been on holiday for more than a month or so, you come back home and realise that you haven’t missed TV at all.
ps i’ve just finished watching 24 series 3 on DVD last night, watched the last 8 episodes straight, and i’ve got to say that it’s diamonds like this that stop me from completely disowning TV! Series 4 to watch next week. Can’t wait.[/quote]
Spoiler alert don’t read this post if you like 24 or Alias and haven’t seen every episode!
Diamonds like that? Season three? is that the season where the crack CIA team lets three people get assassinated in their custody, Jack repeatedly checks and then discharges the rounds in his weapon without cycling the action, and in the last episode Jack gets saved when A HELICOPTER SNEAKS UP ON THE BAD GUY. 'Cause that’s the season I stopped watching. Same with Alias, when it was all her in latex, ancient artifacts, finding nukes and her learning the ropes it was cool (mostly because of the ‘her in latex’), then they started making up technology (WTF a MASER that causes heart attacks from outer space? My fucking microwave is a MASER and yeah a MASER could cause heart attacks, but when the paramedics show up the guy’s body temp. would be through the roof.). Sorry for the rant, I’m a licensed gun owner in a “blue state” so everyone thinks I should love these shows and always want to talk about them. There are probably shows that I watch that others hate as well, I love CSI, feel free to take shots in return. Maybe it’ll help me kick my addiction.
