Is it just me or has american tv gotten dumber ever since I stoped watching it?
before i go into this I'd like to note this is just my opinion.I say that because the ine time I posted this people where rude to me. so i'll rephrase a bit but here is the just of things.

Don't get me wrong i don't mind stupid things in moderation butttt... I've noticed a disturbing trend from t.v on hulu since I have come back to the tv from my own country{yes I have literary watched nothing but Japanese cartoons since the year two thousand began. it's happening in anime as well but at a slower rate. It seems like t.v.is now being sold to people with extreme a.d.d. and the intellect of each show is about the same. I know I haven't seen much but It makes me wonder. it reminds me of how most people view Japanese cartoons. they seem to think japan is in the buizness of producing fan service with out depth. and some shows are like that but to me it's only what you see on the outside.

on a lighter note It is just weird that I can't talk american movies or tv now and have this outside view. It's like looking through another tint of blue shades that color your perspective.

p.s. sorry for butchering the word business,

The TV is getting stupider and dumber always. So yes, you are right, it has gone down the stupid lane since you stopped watching it, because it was always on a downhill, it just follows the normal trend. Idiocracy all around us.

yeah but I think that's because of all the competition that now exist for your attention.

RE: Is it just me or has american tv gotten dumber ever since I stoped watching it?
I quite watching television 7 years ago.

I just finished a 4 year stint in the public school system in Houston, spending a great deal of time with middle schoolers, a tough group. One assignment was, "what do you think life would be like if television did not exist." I believe this was an encouraged district wide topic assignment.

After reading quite a few of these essays, the overall consensus from the kids was that life would not go on, we/I would die without TV, our culture would not advance, people would become dumber. I was astonished when one lone essay came through the myth with a belief that without TV people might talk to one another, might look at the stars, might read books, might learn more.

A co-worker asked me last night what I believed about mermaids? She was taken away with a TV program.

I come from a similar line of thinking butt I know tv is not the only thing in the world. I would eventually get used to being without it and thus I would be fine buttt... if you had to ask me what I did with most my time I'd say watch tv ,[lay video games, and write novels. so basically you should just hook the computer to me already and get it over with.

If you quit watching, how can you know it's grown dumber? Huh
