Short rant incoming, so be warned!
I can understand the appeal of television, sure. With the wide variety of content and whatnot. But in the end, it’s all stupid, mindless consuming of information. All people do is hang on a couch and stare at the same point for long periods of time, without them getting involved in any way.
Sure, there’s some really informative channels and documentaries out there, and TV is a good place to catch up with the news, but other than that I don’t really like it. Especially when my sister sits in front of the TV all day watching nothing but silly cartoons and terribly dubbed series that have no good plot or anything whatsoever.
But hey, I shouldn’t care, right? I do. Television need more informative channels, especially ones that appeal to kids. Or maybe those exist, but we’ve dumbed down the younger generations so much that they’re just not interested in them.
…and biased. At the very sight of subtitles my sis’s all “oh boring” just because it’s in English. Like what the hell?
Do you watch the telly often?
