discovery/history channel that is filled with nonsense.

when children Channels like disney (more for comedy/entertainment) while Nick and Cartoon had its more usefull series (some tried some got destroyed) but atleast keeping the classic's.

Atleast some of the older series had something you could learn from or enjoy insted of being more a "time waster" as in this goes no where (either in story like pokemon to other things) but I think the channel before Nick was better can't remember the name of it though (it has some exciting series one that I teached alot from either to space, words and so on)


I don't say action series are bad.. nono but that some of them are just to be there (forgettable) or not that great overall.
and forgot I just loved scooby doo (atleast the better episodes some that was clever done in story's) and Tom and Jerry.

BBCAmerica's current exec has openly said he HATES the classic 70's-80's "soundstage theater" Golden Age of BBC, with Fawlty Towers, Yes Minister and Elizabeth R, and he would gladly heave-ho it off the network if he could.
He's certainly doing a good job already, as BBCA already seems to be half American Star Trek:TNG reruns. (Picard? Geordy? Ewww, that's so 90's! And I thought I was outdated for Netflixing Deep Space Nine! )

Which sentiment certainly seems to reflect the current Beeb, that wants to emulate Hollywood cinematic style, pile on the CGI FX, and turn the entire state channel into the New Doctor Who Network, with guest appearances by Sherlock!
Even our hope of ever seeing another clever Britcom over here was permanently made extinct by the influence of The Office turning the style toward no-laughtrack multi-camera cinematic style, and making the Brits look like even more cynical, whining, job-clockwatching malcontents than they are already.

Good grief, what's been ruined? Seriously?

TV has. Back when I was young we had one TV in the street, black and white with 2 channels now it's all HD, 4K, 50", 10 a penny for every household. Completely ruined!

And the so called phone. We had two bean cans and a piece of string, none of this instant anywhere mobile internet connected smartphone business. Ruined the phone, really did.

The car. Bah, we never went anywhere that we couldn't walk. It started with the horse and has gone downhill from there.

And don't get me started with computers. These new i5, 16gig RAM, 2TB windows things have ruined computing. The ZX Spectrum was the pinnacle of computing and now look where we are.

Everything is ruined! EVERYTHING! I think it's just a fact of getting older that everything appears to go crappy.

People enjoy reality tv for some reason. With that raking in better ratings who has time for educational programming? Psh, get with the times man.

Reality TV shows have taken over, which is why I don't watch tv anymore.

It's not as bad anymore but do you remember a few years back when cartoon network had nothing but live action shows even though the point of cartoon network is that any time you switch to that station a cartoon will be on. Also Nickelodeon needs to stop. I haven't found anything funny on Nickelodeon for a while and the one thing they did have which was Legend of Korra they treated the creators poorly and the show suffered because of it.

Well, that's the chicken-and-egg thing: Is reality TV on because we watch it, or do we watch it because it's ON?

Now that cable networks have become corporate holdings, and have become so jealous of their own property, they don't submit their movies and classic reruns to the degradation of being aired in syndication anymore (which also means no paying of royalties after various actor and writer strikes demanded them), they've discovered they make more money making "Original Programming", get to keep the profits themselves, and then market their own DVD-boxset reruns and Duck Dynasty cult-of-personality marketing, and keep those profits themselves.
While making easily produced shows on a cable-network budget with non-union actors.

So you could say it either started with Disney Channel deciding that the Mowry Sisters were more popular than Mickey Mouse, or when Cartoon Network went on its school-bullying campaign as propaganda to convince us we "wouldn't miss" Hanna-Barbera cartoons anyway, but when the lion's out of the cage, you don't nitpick over who opened the door.

MTV and TV programming in general. Too many horrific reality TV shows and not enough programming that actually interests me. If I could get all my sports programming without a Cable package, then I would drop Cable in a hurry.

Also, people's mentality in how they identify themselves and their lack of thick skin these days is a HUGE problem if you ask me. You can't say anything without offending someone in some way no matter what you say. It's pathetic.
