TV Crap

Tonight, I realized, and not for the first time, that there is such a load of CRAP on TV. Over 400 channels to choose from and NOTHING worth watching. When I was a kid, there were so many GOOD television choices that we had to sacrifice watching one great show for another great show. A good day was when the entire family could agree on one show! And we only had maybe 30 channels!!

Little House on the Prairie was always a favourite. Love Boat ROCKED at 9:00 on Friday nights…Mom and Dad let us have the special treat of staying up to watch it! Brady Bunch, Gilligan’s Island and Three’s Company were the after school shows, except when the After School Special was on…a wholesome, moral-filled movie for us kids. Back then, parents were safe to put on ANY cartoon. There was no crap like “Family Guy” or “American Dad” to trick parents into thinking, “It’s a cartoon…it’s gotta be safe for the kids!” Violent stuff was ALWAYS on after 9:00, when ALL the good kids were already nestled safely in their beds, sound asleep.

I try not to censor the boys too much as I realize the times are very different, but it would be nice to flip through the channels and not have to worry about flipping past Showcase, showing full on gay porn at 8:30.

Once the kids are in bed, it would be nice to watch something that stimulates the brain, rather than crap like Nancy Grace, Ultimate Fighting or Family Guy. I like a few of the reality TV shows, but once their season is over, it’s just a load of bubble gum crap.

Oh look….a Seinfeld episode I have only seen TWICE. Happy, happy, joy, joy……… Pin It
