Now I know that the TV programmes are still there. Power Rangers and the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles are still going strong, in some form or another, yet the quality has diminished with time! No longer do you get Live & Kicking or even SM:TV Live standard programming! The last time I was awake of a Saturday morning, Dick and Dom were on! Shouting a lot! And being annoying! Kids were in the studio going fucking mental! I was sat at home thinking ’Shut the fuck up, it’s Saturday morning!’
And they wonder were behaviourally influenced Attention Defficit Disorder comes from! When I was a kid, ADHD meant that they’d ignore you while they watched telly and not concentrate in exams! Now they set fire to shit and beat up other kids! It’s evolving! What’s it going to be like in 10 years time, when they’ve got live executions?
And the new age pap, such as Yugi-Oh or something! I don’t even know what they’re called! Pokemon was acceptable, just! The games were pretty good and you could sell a Charizard shiny for a tenner when you were a kid, which was like winning the fucking Euro Millions! But now, all this anime shite is out of control! Kids are reeling off how much HP they’ve got left when they’re in fights in the street! And when they’re doing their Fire spells, I can’t see any fire at all! At least when we were kicking fuck out of each other pretending to be the Red ranger, we could do everything!
