Ok, I get it, TV is in many ways very bad for your mind, and can be a distraction from what really matters, and also get you trapped in a destructive way of life, that is, sitting in front on the TV every night, with your family, not talking to eachother. And so on and on.

But, IF I watch on TV could you recomend any programs that wouldnt be so bad to watch? I mean, there is have to be some program that is ok?

Watch Anime. Screw TV

Anime actually teaches you lessons about life and what to expect in life

Supernatural is also a good show to watch, will teach you a lot about what is to come.

It's not the programming that's the worst of it, but the commercials. We went TV free years ago. The kids hardly ever ask for anything, and when they do it's always because they just watched a bunch of commercials on TV.

Well commercials I do avoid. In sweden we acctully have a couple of channels that is completely commercial-free. But I know that some mainstream show also have sublimal messages, or at least, that is what I have heard

See thats not watching it. You get glimpses of it while he watches it or you youre watching it halfway through the show.

Sit down and actually watch an anime from beginning to end.

That's like walking into a movie halfway, you have no idea what its about, and it will probably suck because you dont know anything about the characters.

TV really isnt that bad, you guys just go way over the top. When your watching it you take it for what it is, light entertainment any nothing else.

There are so many science shows and documentaries online that I don't need or even have a television. There are hours and hours of highly intelligent debates on Religion Vs. Atheism. There are full movies on youtube, and TV shows with very few commercial interruptions, and some with none at all.

You don't have to sit on the couch and go numb in the head while waiting for shows that you really want to watch.

Nature programs might sound boring, but you can really learn a lot from them. Pick a subject like geology or zoology and go for it. I like the National Geographic channel and Nat Geo Wild. There's also Discovery, Learning Channel, etc. You can learn about interesting people on the Biography channel. And what about sports? Being from the Bay Area, I like a good baseball game.

I love animal shows, but I can´t stand NG channel, to much interuptions all the time, like every 5 min its a break that ruin the flow in the show
well, at least for me.

I hade discovery a couple of years ago, but no longer, wich is bad cuz I really liked Discovery Science. But from what I have heard, Discover has gone sour too

These shows are a grate example of what not to watch if you dont want to be brain washed.

PBS has some ok educational shows, some of them are bias though.

Its deeper then that. The TV is made to hypnotize with its refresh rate, to put you in a docile state of mind. Its like watching a swinging ticking watch but far more complex. Have you seen footage of a old CRT TV, did you notice the lines moving up the screen witch creates a flicker.

Tv controls us as a whole. 100's of millions Americans watch hours of it a day. Feeding you information on who you should be. Playing on your emotions and trying to traumatize you. The 6 company's that own most of the channels are not to be trusted. They are controlled by the elite to move the herd. Even if you dont watch it your friends do and if they dont their friends do. It effects you either way.

Sorry but I dont believe this at all, you think the people doing the hypnotising dont watch any TV at all? Their kids dont watch TV? They would just be hypnotising and brain washing themselves aswell.

Sounds great! I can't wait.

I can tell the party never stops at your place.

I like the show Treme. It's about New Orleans in the aftermath of Katrina, and the people trying to get things back to normal. Music a big part of the show, with several characters being musicians.
