Remember when television was wholesome? You were rarely embarrassed to watch it? Or scared to death of some mass murderer on the screen spraying bits and blood everywhere?
This is apparently a thing of the distant past, because everywhere you look on television there is extreme violence, sex, and gross stuff these days.
Sitting around today Peach and I tried to find SOMETHING to watch that wasn’t obscene, we failed epically because unless your into the things mentioned previously, there really isn’t much choice anymore.
I have resolved myself to going back to what we used to do when we were much younger, and that’s reading books. Television for us ADULTS doesn’t exist anymore, and the escapism we found in watching when it was less grotesque, is gone. Yep I know what the younger folks will say, and honestly, I don’t care, my blog can have my opinion, ain’t trying to change anyone else’s mind.
I believe Peach and I will revert to real books, kindles, and the Bible. In these we are transported to places the mind can create, we are lifted above our seemingly endless hardships, and taken to better places. All without the chance of being embarrassed by sex shows, or horrified by gore. We will probably not renew any tv subscriptions, and don’t think we will miss them. Now I know this won’t cause any heart ache or financial catastrophes for anyone, and that’s fine. I only know that we will sleep better, enjoy the days better, take walks, bike rides and trips better, all because we give up being glued to a screen that publishes such sewer that we are mostly embarrassed to have to watch.
Anyways, television? Hasn’t been television since the early 90’s, it became a sewer and is slowly dragging the public down the toilet with it using its content as the snare.
I’d be willing to bet, if you really thought about it, you would agree life would be better if there were no television or at least if it weren’t allowed to show the crap they are allowed to show these days.
…if your looking for me, I’ll be reading a book, don’t try to reach me through a television add…
