Multimedia, AV An interesting anecdote at MinimalMac about television being broken. The author's young daughter, who is growing up in a Netflix/Hulu/iTunes/etc. household, was confronted with actual TV for the first time, and wonders why she can't pick what to watch, why the shows are being interrupted all the time, and so on. Clearly - TV is broken.

Why do your your TV shows suck so bad? I mean seriously, outside of a few humorous commercials, European TV is really, really bad.


You clearly have no familiarity with European TV. Engrenages, Forbrydelsen, Wallander, Lilyhammer, and Borgen are all outstanding TV.

And then of course there's the BBC, which is the greatest collection of TV & Radio channels anywhere, ever.

And two of those are Danish, one is swedish, and one is norwegian-american... the real Europe is boring like you wouldn't believe it except Britain (all hail Little Britain!)

Im an American and I got pissed at that comment, lol.

I LOVE British and European tv. I'd rather watch a lot of British sitcoms than a lot of American ones.
