I started watching TV a few days back and this is what I found. In prime time when most people return from office and look for entertainment there are shows on famous channels catering to to a god-knows-what audience. I cant believe channels like Star Plus which were broadcasting shows like Small Wonder and Bold and the Beautiful, once upon a time, are now broadcasting mindless old fashioned village stories. Not one or two soaps but a whole lot of them. Are these channels only targeting housewives all over the country who would watch TV at all times?
And then there are reality shows like "sach ka samna", "splitsvilla" and the like. I couldn't bear the non-sense of the former or the bitchiness of the latter. How does it matter to me who cheated on their spouse or pretended to fall in love or got pregnant in college? What the hell is wrong with people to watch crap like this for entertainment? And then there is peer pressure, people in office always talk about these shows. Damn, I would rather watch Hangover and Iceage-3 a few times over than see these soaps.
Btw, talking about the shows that cater to housewives who watch TV all day, even I have mindless melodrama running continuously on full volume at my place to entertain my old grany. Wonder how people can be addicted to nonsense at 80. God bless my soul and keep my peace!
