I have wasted infinite number hours watching television.
As a kid, I would sit in front of television for hours switching from channel to another and watching cartoons such as dragon ball z, spider man, X- men, Captain America.
I still can’t resist the temptation to watch the latest episode of Games of Thrones.
Nevertheless, I completely agree with an old saying “T.V is an idiot’s box”. Television shows are directed in such a way that they make you wonder “what’s going to happen next”. One TV show ends and another starts again making you wonder “what’s going to happen next” – the vicious cycle never ends.
Given a choice I would spent time reading a book than watching television show or a movie.
Below is an interesting poem that describes what I want to convey through this blog.
Poem – “Television” by Roald Dahl
Before this monster was invented?’
Have you forgotten? Don’t you know?
We’ll say it very loud and slow:
THEY … USED … TO … READ! They’d READ and READ,
AND READ and READ, and then proceed
To READ some more. Great Scott! Gadzooks!
