I watch too much TV and would like to cut back. Interfering with this, however, is the fact that we are truly in the middle of a television golden age. Never before in my recollection has there been such a plethora of spectacular programming. Forget about movies, TV is the medium for meaningful storytelling and deep character explorations. Too often nowadays, a movie is, almost by virtue of it’s short time frame, superficial. Nowadays it just doesn’t pay for character studies. Consequently, we get a lot of flash and noise and very little that actually resonates in the heart.
