Re: why do Americans make great tv shows
Sort of. The U.S does produce a few good shows, a lot of shit ones. A LOT of shit ones.

The only television channels I watch are Comedy Central, Nickelodeon, PBS, and Science Channel. Unfortunately all those channels are airing shit. Science Channel is airing sci fi style shows when it should be airing educational programs... WTF... Nick doesn;t air good child/adult shows anymore like CatDog, Ren&Stimpy, etc... PBS airs quality content 90% of the time... Comedy Central is producing genuinely funny content.

HBO, AMC... They deliver quality shows as well. I however prefer educational material in television. I'm disappointed in the Science Channel lately. I fear the Science channel may go the way of Discovery Channel, airing good content to really shitty reality shows...

Fuck US television. All it does is dumb you down with exception to just a FEW networks. A mere handful of shows, and networks.

Hell yeah we make great TV and movies!

Walk into blockbuster and you will be surrounded by a few trillion dollars of movie productions.

It takes big money to make good shit.

UK has Monty Python and Top Gear. Both are great but we have more because we spend more and this is a huge fucking country.

So shut the fuck up already!

Most American TV shows are terrible. BB is an exception, along with Game of Thrones and Homeland.

They spend more money on crappy shows than good shows. Take 'The Big Bang Theory'. You have to be a retard to find that funny.

Fun Fact for the Week: One time Nikolai Tesla made Mark Twain shit himself.

True Story: Twain was touring Tesla’s lab when Tesla showed him a vibrating platform that was meant to “impart vitality.” “You mean it will make me regular?” Twain jumped on the platform and within 90 seconds Twain jumped off the platform and yelped “Quick, Tesla, where is it?” hightailing it to the water closet.

Trying to bring GLP together. I'm still collecting flags from posters all over the world. Thread: Official "Flags from around the world" thread. Hoping to get posts from all countries that frequent GLP.

Movies are going downhill nowadays. Regarding series you deserve props.
"White privilege" is the liberal religion's version of Original Sin: you are born guilty, and you carry that burden of guilt all your life, and the only way to escape eternal damnation is for white people confess their sin, to bow, kneel and believe the dogma of the Church of Liberalism, genuflect at its altars, honor its saints, fill the collection plate, and never, ever doubt.

"Greatest" American TV shows are about meth-labs, teen fags, semi illiterate sluts with fake Italian names, vampires, false flag event agencies and redneck imbreeders, what gives?

Re: why do Americans make great tv shows
Dexter was pretty good the first few years. Ray Donovan is sort of interesting now. The Bridge is another good one.

Walking Dead will return soon. If you like scary, American Horror Story had a good first season and lousy second one but the third looks good.

There are plenty of really good programs. No one has to watch the lousy ones.
