Television is an addictive device which keeps the lower classes subdued a perpetuator of violence and a silent destroyer of intellectualism --Daniel J Hardebeck With little exception watching television is a waste of my time Emotionally and intellectually most television programs are set at a junior high school level Watching television rarely requires the use of body or mind I also find most of the advertising pretty insulting There are so many things I am interested in that I never see on television I have a television I do not have cable and I rarely watch the few channels that my antenna catches I think television is a wonderful invention with infinite potential but most television programs do not interest me Television is empty and exhausting Television offers neither rest or stimulation1 Many people enjoy sitting in front of the television after a hard days work but I fail to see how television is relaxing or restful The exhaustion and emptiness I feel after watching a few hours of television is similar to how I feel after a few hours of shopping When watching television the mind may be in alpha but it is not a dead mind Images most of them hollow are pouring into it This creates a zombie-like state for the viewer This state may be caused by sensory overload Televison Shows I cannot relate to most of the characters on these shows They tend to be shallow and uninteresting They tend to be stereotypes They usually annoy me Sometimes I do find characters I like but I get tired of them quickly because they are so one-dimensional and they never evolve they get stuck in formulaic routines Take George from Seinfeld the best character I have seen on television a mixture of insecurity and shamelessness
