I Miss the Old TV

I apologize that lately I have not been writing blogs relevant to my original intentions, but I felt the urge to write about one very common woe throughout my generation: the old television programming.

Television is not like what it used to be. Back when i was a kid we had all the greatest shows on the greatest channel: Nickelodeon. There was Kablam, All That, Kenan and Kel, Angry Beavers, The Amanda Show, and many, many others. And what do they have in today's television? Garbage. It is filled with mindless trash that's random and makes no sense, which is why I become baffled when my little sister will sit and watch The Hills, a show which has no purpose but to show what rich girls with no purpose in life complain and whine about the most trivial stuff, for hours and be entertained! What happened in the last ten years that made television so incredibly boring to watch? Maybe it is a sign that television is causing poor health in humans and we were meant to be outdoors and active instead of cooped up watching tv, but appears as that thought has backfired. Nowadays, it seems like people will watch just about anything, no matter how horrible a show it is.

In conclusion, does anyone who is reading this happen to have any of the shows mentioned above on vhs or dvd or something? I want to watch them again...


  1. Alas, I believe I have never even heard of any of those shows. Child of the late eighties/early nineties here. I'm sure that I would think of your favourite childhood programmes the same way you think of your sister's shows, though...

  2. I think one of my favorite TV shows when I was a little kid was the old school power rangers. I remember waking up early every Saturday morning just to watch the new episode. When I was about 5, my parents had my aunts' boyfriend, at the time, dress up as the red power ranger. The only other show that compared to power rangers was the old school pokemon episodes. That show motivated me to the point where I would have to buy the pokemon trading cards. My parents would have to tear me away from all the cards in every store we walked into. Oh, to be young...
