You have to admit, TV is just awful. The shows that people watch are unbelievable. I say this not watching one episode of most TV programs, but I'm pretty sure I know what to expect. There are all of the "Housewives" shows, talent shows, 'Licious crap, and reality documentaries. I just made up that term because the new show on TLC, "Here Comes Honey Boo Boo", deserves nothing but a made up category. The show shouldn't exist and if any of you plan on watching it, don't ever talk to me again. I'm totally cereal about this!
First of all, the whole "Toddlers and Tiaras" show that this little girl comes from is brutal. Those poor little girls are getting mocked and put in situations they shouldn't have to be in. I have watched about 15 minutes of one episode and have heard many discussions regarding the series and there is just no reason why it should be on TV. Why don't people complain to the FCC about these types of shows? And where are the special interest groups for children's rights? Oh, that's right, they rather spend their efforts on silly things like religion (yeah, I said it), a four letter slip on live TV, or stopping re-runs of Bugs Bunny because it might be too violent (I made that up..I just never see Bugs Bunny on TV anymore and I think it's because no one knows how to parent so we have to let special interest and government decide for us). Sorry, I'm running away here. Let's grab those reins!!
If you keep watching these types of shows, they will continue to be made and people will think it's OK to act this way. Just look at the teen pregnancy shows on MTV. How many times have you heard about the mom or dad going to jail. These people/kids do not need to be in the spotlight. It's only making a difficult situation harder for them. It's all going to lead to this world living the movie "Idiocracy". Please go watch this movie if you haven't. It's a silly yet funny movie, but it makes a valid point. We're headed to a sad place. Hopefully I'll be dead before we start watering our crops with electrolytes.
