I'm with JJ on most of this, I personally don't have the time to watch subpar entertainment. Think of the time invested to watch one season of any series. You could watch 6 Great, unique and intriguing movies (I could name 100, so don't give me that pathetic whiny crap about transformers & big hollywood) in the same space of time that it takes for one storyline. Tv's greatest moments are not that great, it is that simple.
Compare the best tv series you ever saw then read the full Booker shortlist for any given year to see what I mean.... But the fact is that You Won't. Because tv encourages mental laziness.
I am not slagging off anyone that watches tv, but if that is your primary entertainment measured in hours of your life (compared to movies, reading, writing, playing, practicing & hobbies) then you are missing out on life.
