Life is not a TV show.

But for many of us, especially those of the millennial generation, it is what shaped our idea of reality and the eventual realization that your life will not mirror the myriad adventures of characters in television shows (yes, even the well written ones).

Romance and relationships do not "just happen".

Medical issues that pop up don't go away after just a few days. Even ones that television make out to be minor things such as a case of mononucleosis.

Most people do not have a cadre of adult friends they can just hang out with every day past their 20s. And those that do have these friends rarely consider them someone they can depend on.

Overall, humor and off-color remarks are not well tolerated by nearly as many people as television would suggest.

It's nearly impossible to makea long, impassioned speech about something to a group of people. You will be interrrupted, and the repercussions will often be in the extremes of completely ineffectual to life ruining, with little ground in between.

And then there are the myriad escapist and fantasy series which feature science fiction and the super natural which create a longing and dreaming in young people for a reality which can never be realized. Not within their lifetime, possibly never at all.

To give a bit of perspective on this issue I will tell you about how the celts viewed "art":

The only caste that knew how to write were the druids and the bards. The druids were shamans and the bards were prophetic poets.

There was a very strict regulation and initiation associated with the transmission and use of writing (the only "lasting" medium this society had). Writing and the transmission of a narrative was considered both the power to balance and ensure the survival and thriving of a society and also, if used wrongly, the power to destroy it.

In our society, everyone can write, make shows or create any kind of narrative. The only intent is personnal interest (money, fame...).

Can we really argue that this is a good thing?

I don't think so.

>>78733487
No, and people who believe what you believe have already failed. Popular fiction *is* bad for society. Literature is good for society, but as almost nobody reads literature, the worst influences predominate.
>>
>>78734279

sure i can. dont get me wrong, the disney fairytale aspect is dumb, but thats why they mostly apepar in fantasy stories more than anything else.

its certainly a PROBLEM, again TV does have its draw backs but to place the blame on TV is to say that you're a complete retard who can't deal with reality.

deal with reality. dont say 'well i thought something else so that means i can spend all my money on hookers and its TVs fault :^)'
>>
How exactly do you measure if something is "bad" for society?
>>
>>78734373

nope, and you're wrong. popular fiction isn't bad for society. Literature isn't either though. plenty of millions of people read literature.

It's more immersive if they just say what they would say and the audience has the figure out the big words and acronyms on their own.

>Colonel: If the Big Shell explodes, massive quantities of chlorinated chemicals used in killing marine bacteria will go up in flames along with the crude oil. If that happens, expect a large amount of harmful chemical substances, including dioxins, to be released into the atmosphere. Dioxins are common nomenclature for Polychlorinated Dibenzodioxin and Polychlorinated Dibenzofuran. They are organic chloride compounds that are highly acute and toxic, and are powerful chemicals that can cause cancer, genetic disorders, and birth defects. On top of that, they do not decompose easily nor dissolve in water, making it easy for them to accumulate within the bodies of living organisms. The environmental impact on the bay and coastal area ecosystem would be unfathomable. Environmental restoration would likely require several generations. That is why we cannot allow them to blow up the Big Shell. Raiden, you must disarm the C4.

this is the real reason, 1 in 3 american girls are sexually molested before they turn 18 (its 1 in 5 for boys) so you have great odds of sexually abusing a random person and it'll have happened to them as kids and they'll probably just freeze up and then blame themselves afterwards

It's macho to order a dock coffee now? All this time I thought i was doing it because I enjoyed the taste of decent coffee beans steeped in hot water, now i know it's because I wanna be perceived as a badass? How do you get this weird idea in your damn head? is it because the more pussified a person is the more shit they add to their coffee to make it less strong so they don't even taste the damn coffee? Seems like people will always find something to bitch about, no matter how big or small.
