Damn, I wish I could go back to the '90s.
I mean, the music sucked, but television was awesome! Turn on the TV today and you get shows like Total Drama Island, Don't Forget the Lyrics, and The Secret Life of the American Teenager. All shows that I find incredibly ridiculous. Now, I'm not saying that there aren't any good shows on now, there are, but the bad shows overpower the bad ones. Really, I only watch reruns of older shows.
Seriously, the shows I like are all from the '90s. That '70s Show, Seinfeld, The King of Queens (started in the mid-'90s and ended in the mid-2000s), Everyone Loves Raymond. Those are all sitcoms... I actually can't think of any good recent sitcoms.
The '90s cartoons, in my opinion, are so much better than the cartoons now, even larger than the '90s to 2000s sitcoms ratio. Now I can name a million (okay, there's a slight exaggeration there) cartoons being made now that I find to be repetitive, meaningless, and just plain stupid. The cartoons from the '90s (the ones I watched, at least) were original, something rare in animation today. >_< style="font-style: italic;">good was Invader Zim, and that ended five years ago! That show was simply amazing, though. In my opinion. But I'm not going to get into that right now...
I'm not saying that the good cartoons were just in the '90s, but that's when they ended. There were great cartoons all the way back until... Well, when they first came out! I've only seen a few episodes of the old black and white Mickey Mouse show, but that was really cool. Silent, I think?



Which brings me to another subject: kids these days know nothing! About the times before they were born, that is. A few weeks ago a classmate said something about a magic marker, and everyone else started cracking jokes about the markers being 'magic'... How can t
And then, today in History (same class as above) we're learning about the 'Roaring Twenties,' and some kids started talking about 'how the heck do you watch silent movies?!' I was just like O_O They've never seen a silent movie?! -aghast-
Okay, okay, sorry. I just needed to vent...

Alas, I know how ya feel, especially after the horrible TV-watching experience this week was (dang computer).

I haven't seen many good cartoons or anything much on. Total Drama Island was completely stupid. Chowder was amusing though. Somehow...

Ack! I barely got to watch any Invader Zim when it was on!! I want to sooo badly though. I'm gonna hunt around for the box set...

I liked Code Lyoko and stuff like that when they were on. Nothing good that's current though.

It's depressing.

Yes, yes, very depressing. I was so mad a few weekends ago... I woke up earlier than I usually do on a Saturday morning, and Tom and Jerry weren't on! There weren't any cartoons on except for the ones that are on 24/7!!!
I have the Invader Zim box set! I bought it on Amazon. It's amazing! You can even watch the Spanish dub, very amusing. :3
