Comparing 70 And 80s TV Show To Now
There is a big difference between the quality of TV Shows from the 1970s and 1980s to Television programs in the 21st Century. Most of the programs from the 1970s and 1980s were more family oriented and good quality. The programs today are more concerned about “shock value” and “instant gratification”. It seems that much effort is not put into creating sitcoms and dramas in the 21st Century. Another example of how bad television has gotten in the 21st Century, is that there are more “Reality Shows” out there than there are good dramas and sitcoms. In this age of television, anyone can become a celebrity or star without having real talent.
The sitcoms and dramas of the 1970s and 1980s were of good quality and included talented actors and actresses. The programming from these decades were family oriented and the entire family could watch together. But, in the 21st Century, if you do not have cable or satellite TV, it is difficult for you to find a good quality program where your whole family can watch together. There are some good quality shows out there for the entire family to watch, but many are not out there. You have to look at specialty stations, like the cable Disney Channel, in order to get good family oriented programs for the entire family to watch.
Another area of television that has become very popular in the 21st Century are what they call “Reality Shows”. These are dramas involving real people who want to be famous by any means necessary. This new brand of celebrities are called “reality stars” and they become famous for having no talent whatsoever. The most famous of these “reality stars” are the Kardashian clan (especially Kim Kardashian). These “reality shows” have shown how far the world of entertainment has fallen to a new low.
There are still good programs out that there for anyone to watch no matter their age. There are many talented actors, actresses, writers, and directors who want to provide good quality entertainment for TV viewers. So, despite the influx of poor quality programming in the 21st Century, there are at least two that are worth the time to watch and enjoy. The world of television is not dead quite yet because consumers are starting to demand more favorable programming over pure filth.
