yes, so true, but, if one searches, you can still find neat series, like "Universe", Neil DeGrasse Tyson specials, "Birth of a Star", "Wormholes", many series or specials on evolution, "How the Unvierse Works"
there ARE still some good programs on many channels, you just have to look a lil harder. Even reruns of Carl Sagan are still always interesting to me.
(and i kinda like "An Idiot Abroad", too, but i've only seen two episodes...)
but, when i see crapola (esp on Discovery, that one reeeeally goes off the rails) like, "the history of Jesus" or "where WAS Jesus born?" i just facepam....
I no longer watch TV. I shut off my cable last year. I can get any news I want/need on the internet. I watch TV shows I am interested in on Netflix or Hulu.
I do not miss it and the Grandkids play outside much more.
It was a financial decision but I cannot see going back.
I plan to ignore all speculation and talking heads for the next election cycle.
