Hello,
I personally do not watch television like I was 15 years old. Back then I would program my cartoons and stay up to date with my favorite television shows. Now that I am in college, volunteer and have a part time job; I rarely have time to watch television. When I hear people my age talking about Game of Thrones or The Secret, I feel disconnected. My parents are the only ones who take advantage of the cable in our home. I do have an account with Netflix but honestly, I don’t use it either do to time and responsibilities.

Hey Janet, this is really interesting actually because I was just thinking about this the other day. I personally barely turn on my TV nowadays. I watch most of my shows on Netflix or Hulu. I think the only people who watch TV are the more elderly people due to their less exposure of new technology.

Hi it was very interesting post for me to read. Nowadays, I thought TV is a part of our life for almost everyone because of around me that my friends and I are always talk about TV show or some advertisements, so when I read your post, I was surprised that there's someone who doesn't watch shows. Sometimes watching tv or show could bring us a new thought or perspective that we didn't have before. Also, it is very good chance to make and continue an conversion with friends as you mentioned, so I really recommend that watching shows should be worth. Btw my favorite show is Once upon a time and New girl, if you'd like, check them out!
