I was reminded today of the reason I don't watch alot of TV nowadays. I was reading 'Vanity Fair' and was sitting in the living room. Mom was switching from a channel to another. She settled for a channel which was showing some kind of talk show. They were talking about some sort of food which I have no idea how is it linked to the show. The show is about a bunch of youth talking about music and movies. Anyways one of those girls was talking about it and said the brightest comment ever. She wanted to give us a smart comment, I do not know if it was written for her to read or it was improvised. Any ways let me tell you what she said, as she was talking about a food which provides a low percentage of energy she said 'After you eat it, you will feel sleepy' Now this is purely an assumption by her or whomever who invented this great theory! The food may not give you energy but it surely won't take the amount of energy your body has.
Now I couldn't help closing my book and give her my full attention. It is not only her to blame in this, but the comment made me laugh.
To those people who produce such shows:
- Do you think people at home who actually bother to watch you this low intellectually?
- Can't you just stick to the topic of the programme which is about music and movies and leave food to the experts?
- We don't need to see someone on TV who is good looking only, we need people who actually have a considerable amount of intelligent even in shows like these... We like hearing some smart comments every now and then, but they are not able to make such comments then better yet just make them stick to their lines.
One thing I miss about TV... Watching those political analysis who keep on making their own version of what is happening and try their best to show us how much their theory is correct. I have missed watching them and I missed laughing at what they say, I missed the feeling to be impressed by the views of some and feel how much intelligent some of them are. I think I may nowadays watch more TV. I may have some more things to write about. I want to feel those emotions which arise from watching these political shows!
I just have no idea what they are showing these days. For one I am sort of too busy to watch TV and I have more important things to do than just waste my time in front of that box. I would like to go back watching though.
