Why I Don't own a Television and Rarely Go to Movies
"TV consumes more and more time for those who get used to watching it. You start to feel like it belongs. You wonder how you could get along without it. I am jealous for my evenings. There are so many things in life I want to accomplish. I simply could not do what I do if I watched television. So we have never had a TV in 40 years of marriage (except in Germany, to help learn the language)."
I have to agree with Piper here. With the internet, I don't even really need a T.V. for language study either. My wife and I watch movies that are recommended to us by trusted sources about once a month. This seems to be enough for us.
