Is TV really as bad as people say they are?

Discussion in 'Entertainment' started by NintendoCoke, Oct 1, 2012.

  1. Okay, i been on youtube a lot, and iv'e noticed a considerable amount of hate on Nickelodeon, Cartoon Network, etc. But, a lot of the stuff they focus on only applies to the bad stuff. (Like Live action on CN for ex.)
    Here's a list of "good time, no alcohol required" shows that come on. (IMO)

    Doctor Who
    Pokemon(IMO, IMO)
    Adventure Time
    Regular Show
    Green Lantern: The Animated Series
    Young Justice
    The new Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles cartoon
    My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic (depends on if you like flash animation and magical stuff. .__.)

    I don't care for TV no more not even Pokemon anymore. They kinda just ruined the Pokemon anime as a whole when they got rid of Brock and Misty and went downhill for the worst. If you pay for cable you get a lot of paid programming channels and about 20 regular channels. Most programs are ruining they're reputation imo. I don't watch TV at all really because of it. All you see is bs reality TV, dumb stuff on the History channel that relates to nothing about History and other Programs that added more reality TV after MTV. I have lost all mutual respect for the television program industries. Same with music industries.

    You forgot to remove Doctor Who, silly. I'm sure that was just an instance of your carelessness.

    Fantastic thread, by the way.

    Love it. <3

    Is subject-verb agreement really important as they says it are?
  6. You're quite welcome.

    I pretty much agree, expect for the part about Pokemon. I know it's your opinion, but it really didn't go downhill until season 10.

    Anyone who still complains about either CN, Nickelodeon, or Disney, has shown that they have yet to grow up.
    It's no longer 2008 people.

    Which one is season 10? I think it started going downhill after the Advanced or whatever it's called I'm not too familiar with the seasons. But the first seasons were really good like Kanto, Orange Islands, and Johto, some Hoenn was ok but not as good as the other 3. After that it started getting like, "Uh, ya I'm not gonna watch it anymore."

    I agree, I see no hate toward Nickelodeon.

    But TV has adjusted to today's Generation.

    It's pretty much the same crap as it was in 2008 dressed up in a different 2012 package with just a few goodies here and there. Cartoons these days do not cater to the adults forced to watch them because of their kids. The only ones that try anymore are Regular Show, My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic, and Adventure Time. Back in the 90s there were loads of shows that catered to the adult audience. To name a few: Looney Tunes, Powerpuff Girls, Animaniacs, Dragonball Z, Johnny Bravo, Tom & Jerry... The list goes on, really. Cartoons nowadays are an insult to peoples' intelligence.

    TV in general has been in decline ever since shows like Survivor and Big Brother came on. (Not saying Survivor is terrible, just bear with me) Network programming has been reduced to reality TV shows and crime shows since then.

    I'm sorry but the fact that there is My Little Pony in your signature makes your television opinions mean zero to me.

    Disney, for one, used to have all kinds of good cartoons that were great, like Kim Possible and Recess, now it's all sh*tty sitcoms that are boring as hell and not funny whatsoever.

    They're aren't funny because you're not the demographic audience, that and this is a completely different generation.

    And today's generation sucks.

    I rarely watch TV anymore mainly because there is nothing on I want to watch, good and bad, and I just don't like a lot of the shows anyway. I just hate how the standards have gotten rather low and crude. I foresee a day where regular television will be trash, and thus I won't have the television anymore outside of watching movies or playing video games. And even then, online streaming has gotten popular to the point TV ratings have been dropping steadily. The Internet will replace the TV if that keeps up.

    Yeah, my reasons are "lame", but I have been distancing myself from the television since high school if only because, again, shows suck these days. I'm sure it'd be better to be a couch potato than sitting at my desk surfing the web aimlessly all day (since my parents would be seeing me constantly), but I don't know, and I don't care at this point.

    Thanks for reminding me about sitcoms. I forgot to go after them too. Sitcoms these days are generally trying to force-feed Hollywood's morals on the rest of the world. Rarely will something be funny.

    Beavis and Butthead is a fun show to watch with friends.

    I do TOTALLY agree with this! :D

    TV now just doesn't have that kind of "feeling" anymore...

    I don't know what everyone else thinks but I think Nick is finally taking a step in the right direction with the TMNT show.

    Tv has come a LONG way. Most tv shows are bad, like the Jersey Show, but not all of them are bad. (IMO)
