Mega Serials, reality shows – mega bullshit, real problem!
I should probably believe that I am not the first one to rant on the domination of mega-serials and reality shows that have taken over “sensible entertainment”.
On Mega serials:
I think almost all of the current tamil mega serials are IDIOTIC, PUTRID, PUKE-WORTHY stories. I mean, who wants to sit through 30mins in front of the TV, watching a woman getting down the stairs for 10 mins, a man rocking a chair for 5 mins… bah, the list goes on. I cannot bear to stand in front of the TV once my mom and dad (yes! you read that right) start staring at the screen glassy eyed. What’s worse? Here…
In the TV, a man:”If you don’t co-operate, I will kill your wife”
Outside TV, my folks: Adi seruppaala… rascal! Ivana mathiri aala yellam suttu thallanam.
Me: (thinking “WTH????”) Its a bloody TV serial!!!! Shut up already!
My folks: You shut up. We are watching TV.
Me: (pulls hair out)
On Reality serials:
Seems like everything is a copy from USA and Hindi channels. They even have a copy of “Takeshi’s castle”, for crying out loud. And I have people watching, slackjawed and all, some poor guy or gal crying on stage. And the dance shows are the worst. I don’t have to explain about flapping flabs, grunting faces and absolutely horrid dance styles and themes in some cases.
Someone rid the airwaves of this nonsense.
