Seriously, do people really find that kind of stuff entertaining?

Example: all the "housewives" series.

TV has been under the control of mutants for decades, at least since the 80s.

Re: What is with all the TRASH that is on TV now?
We do not watch TV. My 3 kids have been raised without it, other then watching dvds, going to the movies, that sort of thing. I will tell you what has gone to the trash is Hollywood. Man they are putting out some real garbage these days. I call it bubblegum for the brain. It is promoting a de-moralization of our society. One of the first steps to controlling a populous. Turn it off, turn all the shit off. Read, play games with your kids, or just sit around having a conversation. Children really love that, believe it or not.

A couple of weeks ago I flew Jet Blue. They have free in-flight TV. I tried, but it was unwatchable. It confirms that I am missing nothing by not having it.

The only time I miss it is when a good game is on, but we usually go have a couple of beers and watch it there. Get me out for a while.
No good deed goes unpunished.

The last time I switched providers for a super deal, I was dead serious when I told the rep that they should be paying me to watch the junk provided as entertainment.

He got all flustered and started spouting out hit shows. I just laughed, but truly, they should pay us to watch the crap that they are producing as entertainment.

Re: What is with all the TRASH that is on TV now?
The thing is it is SO successful at dumbing down the masses.

Just about everyone I know spends at least 4-5 hours A DAY watching this rubbish. I have to occasional watch it while talking to friends who won't switch it off and I can almost feel my brain cells dying as I watch it.

I usually watch a combined total of one hour a week which is catching up on the news headlines so I can watch the lies and try to figure out the true meanings behind it.

Once you know your news, history and sciences are lies it puts you off ever watching it seriously again.

The disgusting evil perversion that infests the media
is a major sign that we are living in the dregs of the
old world order which is quickly disintegrating.

Because their time is limited... "monsters from the id"
are running amok... destroying and being destroyed.

Me and my husband were just talking about this today. There is so much trash, violence and crap on that we watch very little real tv. Mostly we watch our ROKU so we pick what we watch or history channel and sports. And to think we wonder why people are the way they are. JMO.

Just jealous of their edgy assertive attitudes and cause they are cooler and richer than you and lead super glamorous lives. They get the babes 24/7 and that's all that matters. No more brainwashing than Sesame Street or public school.

Re: What is with all the TRASH that is on TV now?
what do you mean 'now'?

when exactly was this golden age of tv that I missed where it wasnt all about selling you crap you dont need and manipulatiing you into being an obedient little consumer dickbag?
 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 8468937


it not about selling us stuff, except Rx. do you actually watch TV? it's about promoting evil
 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 1246336


it is ALL about selling you stuff.

the shows are basically irrelevant. the commercials cost them 100 times more to research and make than the shows.

the shows are ultimately the products of what the advertizers want you to sit through in order to watch their commercials. everything from the actors to the music to the colours are there to entice you and not make you uncomfortable and start flicking around.

look at asian soap operas which is the next step for the uS and west, EVERYTHING you see on screen is for sale, our representatives are waiting for your call.

they even turn up the volume and broadcast thte adverts in higher quality.

have YOU ever watched tv? they never start with the big ticket item they always make you sit through several commercial breaks before giving you the goods.

'tv is not about selling stuff' I cannot believe you typed that.

poor form old boy, poor form.

if you are dumb enough to believe that its not merely all about consumer pursuits, which it mostly is, get esoteric with it - TV sells you a president, a war, a foreign disaster, a national emergency etc.

Re: What is with all the TRASH that is on TV now?
For many decades it has been trash. Stopped watching it in the 70's. Total waste of time.

Back in the 50's and into the 60's there used to be live theater, good shows like the twilight zone, and authors, poets, and intellectuals on late night talk shows. Now it is all just dumb "entertainment." Our version of the Roman "Bread and Circus" crossed with Barnum and Bailey's best freak shows.

I hardly watch it. Occasionally an informative documentary will grab me.

I've been off TV for years now, never looked back. Thinking about quitting all forms of modern entertainment lately...

Lately I've been very cognizant of how messed up nearly everything and everyone is. Modern society is such a disaster that we are getting into the territory where it is significantly bad for your health to be around it.

I read somewhere that execs think women do most of the TV watching these days; hence all the drama, no action and boring comedy centered around emotions and life.

There are so many references to the Bible...
and specifically the downfall of Babylon...
in the song, Stairway to Heaven... I can't
list them all here.

In the Bible, Babylon has three incarnations...
first is the Tower of Babel that reached to heaven,
second is the Babylonian empire and third is Mystery, Babylon.


The Tower of Babel [Babylon] reached to heaven
because the people were one [thus the lyrics
"when one is all and all are one."] God divided
the people and destroyed the tower.


One is the repeat theme: "Oh it makes me wonder."
This is St John the Divine when he sees Babylon
in a vision for the first time [Rev 17], he
"wondered with great wonder."

Another is the songbird in the tree by the brook...
this imagery is taken directly from Psalm 137 [136 Greek]

[link to niv.scripturetext.com]


Another is the lyric "to be a rock and not to roll"
which is the reverse description of the destruction
of Babylon, " I will roll you down from the rocks "
Jeremiah 51:25
