TV really has been shit since about 2003 IMO and its just gets worse and worse every year.


IMO it's been shit since 1988. That year a third public TV channel was launched in the Netherlands.

I proudly present Magere Hein's Conservation Law of Quality TV Time. My hypothesis is that, ever since the invention of TV, the amount of quality TV that's broadcast every week has been constant. Since that time the number of channels has increased by a factor of 1000 or more, and quality TV time is divided among all those channels. Therefore the odds are overwhelmingly that you'll miss it.

In the Uk there is no decent comedy anymore and everything is reality TV . I believe the Netherlands were the first to be infected with reality TV with endemol i think?

The funniest thing on TV at the moment in the UK is Horrible Histories and that is shoved out of the way on the CBBC channel. I am not the only person who thinks so because this show won the British Comedy award last year. YouTube any of the songs or Bob Dale and enjoy.

Never watched it but i will check it out. I would also recommend 'breaking bad' very unique and amasing american show. One thing I would say if your going to watch breaking bad is don't do any research about it apart from maybe a quick summary about what the show is about. As it has alot of amasing twists and surprises along the way and the way the show has evolved by the end of the fifth season is remarkable.

Though Breaking bad never even got a chance in the UK it was pushed to some secondary channel 5 channel and the last 3 seasons weren't even shown in the UK and the UK rights to the show weren't even expensive. IMO breaking bad is probably one of the best shows America has produced since the x files and consequently they were both worked on by Vince Gilligan.

Since this is posted in a Good News topic: small children receive much less damage from falling on their heads than adults do, due to difference in size. To quote Stephen Gould:

Kinetic energy, for example, increases as length raised to the fifth power. If a child half your height falls unsupported to the ground, its head will hit with not half, but only 1/32 the energy of yours in a similar fall. A child is protected more by its size than by a “soft” head. In return, we are protected from the physical force of its tantrums, for the child can strike with, not half, but only 1/32 of the energy we can muster.[1]


This doesn't mean children won't get hurt when they fall. They'll certainly cry as if it's the end of the world, but probably they'll survive without lasting damage.
