Yes ... some truth be told... but those whom watch this BS are the same s as that program, but plz keep in mind it take all kinds to be an American :) But to B serious, common sense tells you if someone gave up there crap, it can't be worth much more, at least to me and even if they get their money back, what a nasty job doing so. I never pay attention to those type shows too many @ss clowns for me.
they have to fill the airways with something so why not crap !
I think the News is even worst, people from around world think we are all that way, but it's no true... it's just me MadHat Maxx lol!

Very hard to find good talent now days, no one wants work hard anymore, just post some silly stuff on U the Tube, Facebook and make millions over night with some stupid you know.
Please don't get me started.

If I were young now I'd be in jail.

regards,
Maxx

You and me both!

I only happened to see it because it followed 'Mythbusters' (which I love), and was busy on the 'puter!

So completely 'staged', (and if it wasn't, then totally fuckwits taking part!') :eheh:

Me like Mythbusters, TopGear, and History Chanel andthing Science, Music keeps me sane, and love art!

Once every Blue moon a good movie pops up, on Hulu or on the Sat!
Don't like Netflix at all,  Hulu has allot of UK comedy and shows! On hulu, I watched the 15 seasons of Heroes and they dropped the ball most all I enjoy they stop or discontinue!

US shows tend to drop in quality quickly over the years. At least, more quickly than good French or UK shows.
Just stick to Doctor Who and you'll have a good show that is unlikely to be canceled any time soon... :P

(Personally, I dropped Heroes at 3x02, when I realized it had become a parody of the very good first season.)

Yes...+1 and on Heroes, it was something just fell into and you are correct in the seasons, but I still enjoyed it some, I also Like Prison Break even though, it was hard to get me started, but was so close real life politics, I like Elementary although it's on too late at night.

I try to stay open.

Maxx

I agree with the fact that US shows drop in quality after a few seasons. British shows on the other hand are quite consistent.
Heroes was a pretty awesome and yes, after a few seasons it began to get old. I, still however, enjoyed it. I hated the way how the show abruptly ended. Again, Prison Break had the same problem, it  just kept dragging.

As an American, I must say that I completely agree.  :(   Dear God, seventy percent of the country are unable to read or write above the seventh grade level. Their attention span is about as long as a CNN or FoxNews news bite, maybe 30 seconds at best. And if given even a tenth of a chance, they will gravitate to the lowest common denominator.

I took down my telly about 6 years ago and have not watched TV since then, other than what I get on the web. For news I go to European news sites. Most of the musicians I listen to are European artists.

My current favorite is Mylene Farmer. Melts my better she does. Canadian transplanted to France.

Not all of us are like that lol but I have a buddy that did that and paid his way through college with the stuff he got out of a storage unit ;) One man's trash could be another man's treasure. Not so gullible after all huh :p

The only ones I can see benefiting from these type shows are the one making the show out of there dieing businesses, It's kind of like the Yard sale, use to be you could find something nice, at a good price, now  you acn't find nothing but garbage and they want top dollar for it. I say one man garbage is another mans garbage ( now days ) if I had a storage facility and could a way to make money buy stupid idiots cleaning them out for me, Hell Yea ! ( now don't get upset talking now days), when things are new people do benefit from the idea though! but if it's on the Net and by all things not so holy on TV,, then you can bet your asbestos it paled the F--word out!

I live and will die for my Country and many of us have,and are but, there is so much stupid sh^t going on America, and the media is  disgracing us all and the it's not only defaces America, but the rest of free world as well all those. We the people are trying to Help, not the ones with money but the real people that pay the dues!

JMHO
