Well, they don't call it risk aware kink for anything.

I assume this is nothing but a series of overweight old people complaining of heart troubles after popping Viagra?

You're welcome, America.

When cable was young, some on the right said that Public television would be unnecessary because the market would provide us with plenty of educational channels. You know like the Learning Channel, the Discovery channel, the History channel. Yeah, about that...
 
2013-12-05 04:02:04 PM  
Sounds like a show you can learn a lot from this show actually.... lots of things NOT to do so you don't end up on this show.

Don't even need to ask the tfette-who-broke-her-boyfriends-dick's name.

The progression from a educational, fact based network to this "drive-by" drivel would make a good episode of Connections
 
2013-12-05 04:07:25 PM  
No learning allowed on TLC. Can't make people smart.
 
2013-12-05 04:07:28 PM  
Tonight on TLC: "Here comes Honey Boo Boo" followed by "sex sent me to the ER"

Damn, this shiat writes itself

My wife loves that Celebrity Ghost Stories show. It's so incredibly dumb, made worse by the fact that I have to see K-list "celebrities" tell us about their ghost cats.
 
2013-12-05 04:08:16 PM  
Me too.  That crazy broad tried to kill me with a claw hammer.

Why yes, I DID stick my dick in crazy.

And then the right came along and said, "Hey, look at all the money we could make with 'Ow! My Balls!'"

The problem with educational TV is that by the end of the day, most people are too exhausted to actually learn anything. Which makes watching it a waste of time.

 Mindless drivel? No problem, doesn't require any mental effort on your part.

 Espionage tactics and findings of the Revolutionary War? Sounds great...if I could remember something for longer than 20 seconds and be able to compare it to the recent information.

Personally I read a lot of information text for fun. But when I'm tired, I just can't. Does not compute. Which is frustrating.

Sex sent me to the ER once. Her husband knocked the crap out of me.

Full disclosure - I've never been sent to the ER because of sex, but the fire department did have to cut a collar off me once.

Dragonflew: The Lobotomy Channel


That's already been trademarked by Fox News.
 
2013-12-05 04:14:24 PM  
At least these are essentially real events. We don't need more ghost tales, atlantis hunters, alien investigations, or stupid reality shows.

Why does everything that starts out with a higher mindset end up turning into dribble?

I can remember when daytime talk shows had interesting guests and relevant topics. Merv Griffin. Phil Donahue.

Then Oprah came along and wanted all the money, so started wooing the lowest common...you know.

The only thing I'm learning from TLC is how much I dislike it.
 
2013-12-05 04:18:35 PM  
Not to mention all the hillbilly shows such as Moonshiners on Discovery. You need subtitles for the accent.
 
2013-12-05 04:19:58 PM  
The show for people who don't want to spend the time reading through Cosmo's sex tips?

Now THAT was good show.
 
2013-12-05 04:20:18 PM  
this reminds me of one episode of Howard Stern where a guy called in, saying he had his girlfriend beak his boner

I'll totally watch Small Dogs, Big Dumps.

Programming on TV is simple supply and demand. Regardless of how much you might think that you'll watch a PBS special on butterfly migration, it's more likely that you (and almost all of your neighbors) will watch one of the other 10 options. All of which are reality shows or worse.

I'd actually watch CAKE WHORES...

Therefore, I am part of the problem.

TLC was started by the Department of Education and NASA... then Republicans privatized it and here we are.

I'm 27. When I was about 15 I was watching TLC and on a sex and anatomy special, they showed a 12 year old girl completely nude and then fast forwarded her growth to about 20 to show how the body changed. Raging hormones and fap aside , that was when I remember TLC being educational.

From an era when the people that ran TLC weren't a compelling argument for eugenics:   Episodes of Paleoworld on Youtube.
 
2013-12-05 04:24:35 PM  
Same thing happens to all the great "specialty" channels. They all decided to reach out to a "wider" audience and cut costs at the same time by switching from their original intended programming to trashy reality shows, including subtle name changes:

The Learning Channel is now just TLC
The History Channel is now H
SciFi is now SyFy

I blame the original offender, Music TeleVision.
 
2013-12-05 04:24:51 PM  
Television is the C.B. radio of receiving information.

...or drivel. Dribble could be an interesting result, but more Pavlovian than esoteric

I know what I watch.

Hours of documentaries on PBS last month: 5-6ish(though NOVA has gone really downhill)
Hours of reality TV: flat-goddamn-zero

TLC brought me this and I am grateful.

But to be honest, the stuff on PBS doesn't require much effort to
understand.

If I read the journal entries for some of the content on Nova, I would probably not grasp the hard science. However, Nova does a good job making the stuff accessible to most people.

I still like the ambiguity of Dwarf Hoarders. Is that dwarves who hoard things, or people who hoard dwarves?

ok, that's one household and I agree NOVA is not what it used to be. Odds are the rest of the neighbors are tuned in to 'Survivor'
