    Television-Our Very Own Idiot Box

    Well, Idiot box is nothing but referred to as Television or T.V. They say that we gain nothing by watching TV. It is a total waste of time. But when you hear the word "Idiot Box" what is the first and foremost thing(s) that comes to your mind? And in your opinion, why do you think a TV has been given the name "Idiot Box"?

    By idiot box, what I mean that instead of doing some productive work, we allot our total time to viewing pleasure of some unwanted stuff even though some informative features appearing in other channels are missed. For example instead of viewing the daily serials, one can view the happenings in Discovery channel, science channels, so that latest information are shown there and we will be blessed with knowledge appreciation. Even news channels are stereo type and entertainment channels are also waste. I give full marks to educative programs on Discovery channels and its sister groups.

    There is already an ongoing thread about television and programs beamed from it so you can append your views there itself rather than starting a similar discussion on it: Is the small screen slowly fading out and losing its glory?
