American culture is an oxymoron.
Honey Boo Boo...that just about says it all when referring to trashy reality shows. The same idiots who watch trash like this also vote. No wonder we have such problems. And, if morons wouldn't watch this garbage it wouldn't be on, plain and simple.
Don't know much about Rome.
Don't know much about Nero and his fiddle.
Don't know much about what started the fire.
Don't know much about anything at all...
Just think, if you have cable TV you are paying to be subjected to spectacles like this. I'm not sure if it's just as bad, not as bad, or worse than paying to watch MSNBC and Fox News. Why do people pay to have cable TV?
You don't need cable. Anything that's worth watching is available over the air or through streaming, or at least on DVD.
I dumped my digital starter (a ton of channels and 90% crap) a long time ago. I'm down to dirt cheap basic cable and barely turn the t.v. on these days. I watch local news and that's about it.
