On TV

Television is not the Truth.
Television is god-damned amusement park.
Television is a circus, a carnival, a traveling troupe of acrobats,
storytellers, dancers, singers, jugglers, sideshow freaks,
lion tamers and football players.
We're in the boredom killing business.

As my mother would say Television is the route of all evil.

TV is the ultimate babysitter. No wonder so many kids have no real imagination.

which kids lack imagination?

I've yet to meet one... It's just a trite line trotted out by 'grown-ups', you may as well say 'things were better when I were a lad'

Good TV/films (even some commercials) will spark creativity and thought.
