Do some people not watch TV at all or are against it?

I am starting to wonder because my dad really recommends me to watch TV mainly to build up my conversation skills and learn new things at a higher level.

So, do some people not watch TV at all or are against it?
a) yes
b) no

Answers:

yes,most tv is a waste of time

Depending on what is watched,

TV can be either beneficial or harmful.

Sometimes it is neither, which makes some decisions more difficult.

I don't watch TV at all now.

Some people watch TV.

Some people don't watch TV.

There are people known to not watch TV, but they tend to be snobbish intellectual retards (as in like to think that it makes them smarter than they think they are). Famous scene in one of the "Police Academy" movies.......

Lack of entertainment from not watching TV (with the odd bit of YouTube + Amazon Prime) can turn you into a bit of a drooling vegetable even more badly than watching "trash tv"........ so it's good to watch as long as you exercise a bit of quality control, with good stuff such as:
- Top Gear (series 1 to 22)
- The Grand Tour (amazon prime)
- This Old House / Ask This Old House (also available on their YouTube channel)
- James May's Toy Stories
- Ross Kemp on Gangs
- Louis Theroux documentaries (e.g. "Law & Disorder in Philadelphia")
- South Park
- The Men Who Built America
- America The Story of US
- Star Trek TOS / TNG / DS9 / ENT
- Agatha Christie's Poirot (drama series starring David Suchet, based on the novels)
- Billy Connolly's travel documentary series ("World Tour of Scotland", "World Tour of Australia", "Route 66", "Tracks Across America")
- Megastructures
- Wheeler Dealers
- Only in America, with Larry the Cable Guy
- Jeremy Clarkson's history documentaries ("The Greatest Raid of All", "PQ17 an Arctic Convoy Disaster", "Greatest Britons: Isambard Kingdom Brunel", etc)

Not watching TV can also make you look a bit of an idiot, especially if it leaves you clueless in conversations cropping up about shows in the "you haven't lived if you haven't seen it" category because they're a cult classic (e.g. Star Trek, Monty Python, X Files, South Park, etc).

A lot of people are ditching ordinary TV to save on Cable/Satelite subscriptions and switching to more hi-tech ways such as streaming over the internet (aka "cord cutting").

I don't watch much TV. And when I do it is only broadcast antenna TV, no cable. Plus I check the listings first to see if it's worth it.
You will NOT learn any conversation skills by watching others. You have to participate with live people.

I dont watch TV as in cable TV. I have subscriptions to Hulu, HBO, Amazon prime, and Netflix. No commercials, No worries.

Yes on both counts.

a). Many people don't bother with TV. A lot of stuff on there is rubbish, that's not to say those who don't watch it are illiterate imbeciles who can't start or keep a conversation going. On the contrary, those who don't watch are often well-read intellectuals or have intelligent hobbies and a good network of friends.
