    Default randomness in tv

    In most shows there will be something either completely random or something that makes you think something completely random.
    example-Once while watching criminal minds with my friend, this guy is having a heart attack after being sent a video of his daughter getting raped and killed, and all I could think while this was happening was-"Hey, That's Billy Joel playing in the background!"

    What random things like this has every happened to you?

    That's exactly what I would be thinking if I was sent the same video of my dad being chopped into pieces. "Hey, they are using a ginzu knife! it can slice tomatoes with ease!"

    A couple of years ago during the Super Bowl when it was the Arizona Cardinals vs Steelers, some guy managed to hack into the Comcast digital servers and played a 15 second clip of porn for all of Tucson to see during the 3rd quarter.

    It only affected basic channel watchers, so we were unaffected since we were watching it in HD.

    But yeah..... somewhere around 1 million people saw that here.

    Wasn't that last year? Well anyway I stopped paying TV any heed after they spent at least 2 hours a day on the Haitian earthquake.

    I don't watch a lot of TV nowadays, but whenever I watch something like reality shows or those guys from the travel channel I always find myself asking how much they get paid to do what they do. Like Adam Richmond or whatever his name is. He eats all this junk food and then takes a challenge that he has to complete. That must be a nice life, getting paid to eat. Though I feel bad for his heart and his arteries.

    I'm loving the Old Spice commercials. Doesn't make me think of anything random, beyond the randomness of the commercial already, but jeez is it so awesomely random.

    When I recently watched Jurassic Park, when the one guy was eaten by T-rex, I was a little horrified until I asked my mom if his pants was still down. Followed by the question of "I wonder if that dinosaur is aware that he is eating a pantless person that just took a crap?" ;/ Through out the whole movie, my mom and I ended up talking about unfortunate ways to die. We added that on the list though. I think thats how random it got.

    That is random

    but what is random when you change channel midway through a sentence because I was watching a cooking programme and the guy said
    I don't think I've cooked my beans enough

    I then changed channel and the advert said
    with fabreeze

    so it sounded like the guy didn't cook his beans enough with fabreeze

    That's a good point. The majority of the tv I watch comes from internet videos.

    I do. Newer media are nice and all, but they aren't really relaxing in the same way TV is. With TV, you can just tune out, but newer media requires you to make decisions every 5 minutes.

    Well, not necessarily. I watch things on DVDs and the only "decisions" I have to make is clicking the "Play" button, and maybe selecting a subtitle language.

    I prefer watching things on the computer partly because you can pause and rewind like you want, but mostly because you can choose when to watch. I don't like having to wait sometimes a whole week to see the next episode (which I usually have a good chance to miss X_X).


    Anyway, my earlier comment was slightly unrelated. It wasn't that I have a problem with TVs. I kinda find most of what I see on TV uninteresting.
