I get a lot of programs that are produced in Canada. They are so much professional than American TV. I am so sick of reality shows. Just a cheap way not to hire a complete crew to write and produce a pleasurable TV show.
Commercials are even more enjoyably spaced. There are half as many as on American TV. If the show has a story to tell, whether it is reality like Highway Through Hell, or a fictional story like a mystery show placed in the late 190's, there are fewer commercials and are spaced so that you get to see the an important part. They don't break for a commercial. And there are fewer commercials during that break. American TV has commercial breaks that last for as long as five minutes. Yes I have timed them.
It used to be that the networks were getting bad. So you watched cable. The shows were better, had better writing and you could sit back and watch a good show. Not anymore. It is all reality trash. Does anyone really care if the Kadashian girls have more babies, get married or anything else. And what do they do? Not one of them have an honest real job. And the real housewives!! What a joke all of them are. Are they kidding? Do any of them do housework? Do they hold down a job outside the home for eight hours a day?
Keep the Canadian shows coming. With all the snow we have had in Boston, I am a prisoner in my home. I get around outside with a scooter. Can't take it outside in the snow. So here I am ever so grateful to Canada for entertaining me with intelligent shows. Thank you Canada.
