I was just browsing this part of the forum and noticed dozens of threads about TV shows. I just thought I would share my experience with you. My fiance and I moved to Colorado a few months ago. Previously, we were in Arizona. We had TV access and would watch on occasions (at least I would, my fiance never seemed interested in watching TV). When we moved to Colorado, we decided not to sign up for TV access. It costs a lot, and we never really watched it much. Plus, we would always feel drained after sitting in front of the TV. Now that we don't have TV, we buy/rent DVDs if we feel like watching a movie. And if not, we spend time doing other things that are much more productive. Just thought I'd share... In our opinions, TV is a huge waste of time. You spend hours watching shows when you could be spending time with family, exercising, reading, doing something to stimulate your creativity, etc... We're excited about our new stance on television. It's not really about the content, more about the waste of time. When we have a kid, we both agree that we won't have TV. We will purchase educational DVDs and kid movies for the child to watch. We would rather our child spend time learning, not wasting away in front of the television.
