TV Shows Are Completely Unwatchable

Absolutely insane how that happened and the government just bailed out the banks. I like how they put the responsibility on the individual being manipulated too. I got myself into a right mess a while back with debt. At first, I actually worried about my credit rating but as the charges kept racking up and my ability to pay off my debt became impossible I just thought 'screw it' and basically took a YOLO attitude to borrowing. I don't think I could have acted any more irresponsibly, but I still got accepted for a capital one credit card recently. It is crazy because if you rob a bank or post office for a me hundred pounds they will put you in prison for about 8 years in Britain. Yet, anybody can borrow thousands and not even attempt to pay back what they owe and it isn't even a crime.

Have you ever wondered why there are so many TV series about cops - FBI, NYPD, LYPD...all kinds of PDs, NCIS...etc?

Two main reasons:

1. To present law enforcement people as some form of heroes.

2. Because they can go on forever (the same episode repeats forever in a different skin) and present some form of adventure.

I almost don't watch TV at all
I use internet to read news, watch movies and series to my liking
And TV is pretty much obsolete medium - now internet is television of 21th century

The crime/cops thing is true with novels too. The most popular form of fiction seem to be crime thrillers.

I enjoyed that making a murderer series, which basically showed the police and courts as corrupt, but the injustice of it all is hard to stomach.

The Internet could be worse than TV in many regards. It's an endless void.
