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.

In France, I would only watch two channels: France 5 and Arte (and to some extend, free TV shows from Canal+). The other channels are crappy!

LCP stuff beyond debates from the Assemblée Nationale and the Sénat looks also great if you're into intellectual debates. Although I don't watch TV much these days, I found their stuff interesting the two times I watched it.

The first time I watched was during the debate on burqa interdiction, a while ago. They had a theologian speaking about women in the Quran and how it is not necessarily what one may think. As an example, he discussed how men who do not sexually satisfy their wives are supposed to get beaten by their peers in Coranic law. Fascinating.

The second time, it was something about surrogacy (mères porteuses/gestation pour autrui), which was also quite interesting.
