You didn't make some sense, you made total sense dear.

That's exactly what i meant by my post. That when we start out, it's entertaining, but beyond a point it's nothing more than an addiction. And i don't think it can EVER happen that you watch a show regularly and it doesn't affect your mind! It's bound to!


Thanks!Smile

 It should be a source of entertainment but slowly it becomes an addiction and we get attached to the show and the cast,fans bash others and hurt their feelings for characters who don't even exist and also for actors who are not aware of such fans' existence.

A TV show is like first a source of entertainment, then a stress buster and eventually a sheer addiction. But then this addiction doesn't last very long provided the liking we possess about so and so thing or person in fiction is very hollow - all you need is one wrong move, something that for you is unacceptable and the addiction is over.


Like see, I have loved Mayank and Nupur of MJHT too much but somehow I never liked them after the confession was made as much as I loved them before. Nothing even close to that, the show was losing its charm. So like  other addictions, TV addictions aren't very contagious - they do let you go easily. BUT, it is dependent on if you choose to keep yourself captivated by something fictitious. Its nothing 'dangerous' but access of everything is bad, we shouldn't forget! :D

I have a policy of letting others have the TV first if they want to watch something else. I may sometimes catch the repeats. These days the comedy programmes are not so addictive. I used to love Seinfeld.
