Watching television is a waste of time. Discuss.

I believe that watching television is a waste of time, because nowadays there is nothing good on television anymore. There are too many commercial channels that have one goal: to make as much money as they possibly can.

These channels try to manipulate people by making their programmes ‘spectacular’ but the truth is that a lot of these programmes are plain disgusting. Especially their documentaries are like this, they are not humane anymore.

Of course, the public channels cannot stay behind so they will try to bring some excitement into their programmes as well. Their power is decreasing but what can we do about it? People want spectacle, they want fireworks!

The worst thing about these commercial channels is the fact that they pretend to be sophisticated while they are really not. They say that the goal of their documentaries is to ‘give an objective insight in the society we live in’ but what they are really doing is making fun of people, and they know that this will appeal to the audience. All of this just to make more money.

If this trend continues, I do not want to turn my t.v. anymore. Watching television has become a complete waste of time and people should realize that there are much better things to do in this world than watching other people’s misery. For instance: go read a book!
