    I can't believe the things they show during the day when kids would definitely be watching. No one seems to care anymore. shame.

    We (hubs and I) were turned off when Kalinda had some heavy scenes with another woman. How did THAT improve the program? Hello, TV writers? Hubs will not watch it. I tend to enjoy legal things, and so I still watch, but do not like the reactions to the daughter's Christianity or many of the innuendos in the program about how life should be lived. Hubs just added the Hallmark Mystery Channel to our TV service. We'll see how that works.
    And how do you like the adds on the news at 6 PM with the couple in the bathtubs? Glad I have no young children to have to explain it.

    I agree, the quality of TV just seems to be going down the drain.

    I've been sort of appalled for ads for a new series called "Younger," in which an older woman passes for much younger and "dates" a younger man. I have never watched it, but even the previews make me cringe.
    People who start projects and never finish them are cooler
    than people who never start projects at all.

    I think this was about the time we quit watching. It actually got quite boring. We aren't prudes either but just got really bored with the whole thing.

    About all I watch is HGTV or DIY channels. I like the American Pickers and a few innocent shows like that. Some commercials are down right uncalled for. I'm no prude, just think all subjects are not for airing on TV.

    We have a 'watershed' here, where some risqué/violent programmes can only be shown after 9pm. I love spy/crime/drama programmes, and 'Scandi' shows - The Bridge, Borgen, Killing, Trapped etc. All with subtitles, but brilliant. There are some great British programmes too - Hinterland, Happy Valley, Shetland - to name a few

    I love the show, agree that it is getting a bit more torrid, but it still is one of the best shows on TV. I was very sad to hear that the show is in it's last season.
    A quilt is like a good life. It's full of mistakes, but, in the end, it looks pretty good.

    Wow.... With everything that's been said about this show, if you think this is one of the best, what on earth would you consider "bad"?

    This is why we got rid of regular TV. Everything was so sick minded. We only have Netflix & have had for three years now. At least we can watch the type of shows we like & not have all the (to us) sick minded shows shoved down our throats.

    Summer is coming and all the "regular" tv programs will be on hiatus..although most are already closing shop, so to speak. We have Comcast here and on a dull evening I will scroll thru the hundreds of channels offered and look at the offerings......wow, what a bunch of junk on most of these " channels".....and repeat programming galore.....and I and many others are paying for this stuff! Yet, to be diverse and invest in Hulu, Netflix, and the other things seems so confusing. Also saw an ad where you can "stream" programs from tv onto your electronic devices-for a fee- of course. My question is why would one want that? And to rent a movie-- not many of those I personally want to see. Just went to the movies-a very rare thing- to see Risen...thought it might be good, being the season and all.....well, I personally was not impressed, a bit disappointed......good thing weather is warming...can spend more time outside for entertainment....will get off my soapbox now.

    I watch HGTV or cooking shows and the Alaska series of subsistence living. They are clean and honest. Once in a while I will watch National Geographic (He named me Malala, for example).

    Lot's of shows are going that route lately and it's getting so I don't like watching anymore. I'm no prude but give me a break. As others have said, how does that improve the story line. Remember when Lucy and Dezi slept in separate beds and they were married. I can remember my Dad saying "next thing they will be showing toilet paper sales on TV". Glad he didn't live long enough to see all this.

    We don't have cable, and only stream Netflix for entertainment. The offerings there are pretty slim pickings, too. One nice thing about Netflix, is that there are no commercials. We also like that we can binge watch a season or a series... you just have to wait until it's available on Netflix, (usually the beginning of the next season.) Our public library branch is just 6 blocks away, and we can newer movies for $1 for 3 weeks. We request them online and watch them when it's available. We go to the movie theatre about once per year. For a family of 4 to go to the theatre once is about $32. We can rent a year's worth of movies for that! If we rent it, decide we love it and it's one we'd watch repeatedly, we'll purchase it and still save money. To be honest, we haven't purchased a movie in ages, either. There's just nothing out there that's worth watching repeatedly.
    Our library also has PBS, and BBC shows available by season for free. We just finished binge watching Downton Abbey season 6. When we finished it, I requested season 1. I want to start over.

    Totally agree about some commercials being inappropriate, I can't believe what they put on at 5 pm. Things have certainly changed....not in a good way either!!

    It is getting harder for older people like my DH and I to find anything to watch. He usually is asleep ten minutes into a show and I read.

    We watch Alaska shows and History, and Gas Monkey where they rebuild cars. LOL Also get some old movies on the #200 channels. Almost nothing to watch that is fit to see. Someone is going to have to 'splain that bathtub ad to me too. ha

    It's sad that we pay big bucks for satellite to have so much trash that we don't watch.
