Rather than get atwist that this sort of schlock is on tv, I did what we all
need to do for ourselves. I decided not to watch.
"All that is necessary for the triumph of evil is that good men do
nothing."-Edmund BurkeTruly the fact that this television show
is so popular, is a sad commentary on what we as a society value. I'm not
sure just turning off our own tv's is enough anymore. We need to continue
speaking out against this kind of filth. Whether we watch it or not, it does
affect the world we live in.
Inadvertently happened upon an episode recently and watched for awhile..it is
shallow and stupid, gratuitous violence. My young friend watching with me was
enthralled. What will be next, the violence of the Roman arena?
roswell - my thoughts exactly. The tourist draw in Rome, called the Collosseum,
was a three-part spectacle. Animals killing people and people killing animals
in the morning. A lunch-break "hacking of the criminals" for those who
didn't "eat out". And people killing people for the afternoon.
The collosseum was in use for centuries. This behaviour, watching the Walking
Dead, is not a flattering mirror of ourselves.
Sounds like a video game put to film. No. Thank. You.
