    I so rarely watch it that up to recently (carona), it's been ignored for the larger part of my life. I don't see myself purchasing another in the future.

    I see it as a great entertaiment venue, particularly from the view of sports. The many streaming services have added an extra dimension...movies on call etc etc
    My only whinge is these absolutely sickening, so called reality TV shows on the free to air channels. Could anything really be further from the truth??
    The one at this time that makes me want to pull my hair out [what's left of it] is the Married at first sight nonsensical scenarios! Even the cooking show My Kitchen Rules, is more about the silly fucking relationships between the different pairs of contestants, then the dishes they prepare! Aaarg!!!

    We're currently going through a golden age of TV drama, driven largely by the explosion in online streaming. Netflix, HBO, all that.

    These days, good TV is much better than the kind of dross that Hollywood is mostly serving up. Do we really need the 27th installment of the Avengers?
