Sad story: The show that I've seen that teaches the most life lessons is... South Park. No joke... {nm}

This is what is wrong with American TV these days. ndmaster Dec 12, 06:17

When did it mean something or teach us something? Disclaimer-I stopped watching TV ~1980. {nm} forlorne Dec 12, 07:03

How about Little House, The Cosby Show, etc. Just two I thought of. ndmaster Dec 12, 07:46

I had previously mentioned Donna Reed, The Rifleman, and Leave it to Beaver, on MeTV, as being a good watch, with good values. {nm} edzep - Port Monkey! Dec 12, 09:41

Not that I have anything against good drama. That list of Lobo's is a bunch of my favorites (but, have not watched House of Cards). {nm} edzep - Port Monkey! Dec 12, 11:26

Breaking Bad, The Wire, The Sopranos, Mad Men, Boardwalk Empire, House of Cards and several others that have impressed me over the years {nm} lobogotti Dec 12, 07:39

but we can agree that network shows are HORRID! there isn't much on today I can stand (have never watch a reality show that I can recall) {nm} lobogotti Dec 12, 07:41

Yes, I guess I mean network TV, and I include TBS, WB, FOX, etc. {nm} ndmaster Dec 12, 07:45

I preach to friends about the very same subject all the time. {nm} lobogotti Dec 12, 08:27

Although it was entertaining, is Breaking Bad an example of wholesome entertainment designed to teach us something? Uh Oh {nm} PVL Admin Dec 12, 11:18

I've made a successful living off of Walter Whites teachings! {nm} lobogotti Dec 12, 16:36

There are a lot of parallels between much of American TV and the formalized structure of ancient Greek plays. {nm} DTravel Dec 12, 13:34

What does this mean? Can you elaborate? {nm} ndmaster Dec 12, 19:59
