Yeah, those shows disgust me, because of the vanity. My mom watches them all the time though. What I found about TV shows is that you are not thinking while you are watching them most of the time. So it just destroys the brain.Ohhhh those kind of things. Yikes can we really call them shows or perhaps better said of thy worlds showing.

Haha. But it's true though.If I may add a point to this fine display of wording you have here me friend Juk.
Even though we think we are not thinking our thinker is just a thinken away and allowen all these wormies of fleshly thinken to come on in and join in our thinkers thinken and then we have those thinkens and this thinkens and all those other thinkers mixed in with what God has been tryen to get us to be thinken and we end up looken like one big stinken thinken non thinken fool. Shew thats a mind full.
Those are american it wouldnt get shown in nz.

I've had periods without TV and I've not really missed it much. The biggest loss to me perhaps was not being able to see live cricket but the test matches went from free to view a while ago and I'd not pay for Sky.I don't have a TV, my family have never had one.
Probably not what you mean but I have found myself getting hooked on soaps like Coronation Street and Neighbours in the past. I've watched one episode and a few weeks/months down the line have sort of wondered "Why am I still watching that?".some TV shows just draw you in, and you feel compelled to keep watching.
But, with the internet now we can watch all the TV we want, without that tell-tale box.
That's what I mean - the storyline that you just have to know what happens next.Probably not what you mean but I have found myself getting hooked on soaps like Coronation Street and Neighbours in the past.

How true! The Internet adds another dimension, for sure.Personally, I've found the Internet more troublesome than TV. Hours wasted refreshing threads looking for replies, rows I've stupidly got into, etc.
Heheh... well, if the brethren come to your house (and we're in and out of each other's houses all the time), it would be difficult to hide a TV - not that anyone has ever tried to, to my knowledge. Now we can all watch whatever we want on the internet. I think everyone does watch at least some programmes online, except perhaps the older brethren who don't have Internet at all, or have it but aren't interested in anything as worldly as television (which is commendable).Can you explain what you mean by "tell-tale box"?
We didnt have ultra broadband until recently so couldnt have watched tv on internet anyway it would have sucked up too much data and waited forever to download.
I dont go trawling around or channel surfing looking for something to watch, then complain theres nothing good on, but watch it anyway.
When I was young, before the Internet really took off, TV was the great evil - it let the world into your home. That's why it was frowned upon by the brethren, and no-one had (or has) a TV. It's not really a matter of judging, but it would've been a source of concern or even upset if a believer who was in fellowship was known to have a TV. I don't think anyone was ever that set on having one that they'd risk upsetting the brethren over it. But, now the Internet has come along, and we all need it for our business and our communications, and it's opened a door into a lot of homes that was shut before when people didn't have TVs on principle. Still, the Lord gives us wisdom and grace for these changed times.Lol why would you hide a tv? You cant these days.
But if i came to your house I wouldnt judge you if you had one.
I get annoyed when I go to ppls houses though and they want me to watch tv rather than talk to me.
I remember when I was at school, going to friends' houses and sitting watching the TV with them. It did seem a bit of a waste of time, when I'd gone to their house especially to spend time with them!
