So you haven't been following the second golden age of television? Maybe if you caught up a little you wouldn't be so against shows.

I’d imagine Bacon was an influence on Carpenter and especially Cronenberg.

I did watch some episodes of shows people were telling me to watch, but nothing stuck with me.

I gave these a shot: Boardwalk Empire, Game of Thrones, Breaking Bad, and Mad Men. Nothing really stuck with me. I especially didn't like GOT and Boardwalk.

TV series are a huge time commitment. Didn't find one that convinced me to throw 10+ hours away just like that.

How many movies go on one average TV show? A lot.

Well there's your problem. Spread it out.

I do. Among many, many movies instead of a few TV shows. Ain't nobody got time for that ****.

I watched 10 hours of Game of Thrones to make a friend shut up about it. 10 hours! Very poor decision in hindsight. This is why I won't a TV show just because people say it's good. Fool me once, twice, ...

Try an episode of Urusei Yatsura every morning with a bowl of cereal. Start the day like a champ.

I'm slightly more lenient on anime since the episodes are short and many of them have only two short seasons. Still haven't watched any this whole year though.

Cut back on the movies and check out a show occasionally. You got time for that ****.

Fool you twice and you decide that new things aren't for you. Reasonable.
