Is Television a Blessing or a Curse and a Time Waster?
It goes without saying that television is one of the greatest inventions of our century. With the help of TV people are able to see the far away planets and even enjoy a direct broadcast from the space. Television makes it possible to watch the splitting of the atom, the birth of life, the volcano eruptions and even the earthquakes.
Ask a child, a teenager or an adult if he can do without TV and he will honestly be surprised at the question. Everyone seems to have a favourite daily or weekly chat show, serial, soap opera or at least a news programme. I personally consider it to be a wonderful way to relax and to switch off from every day problems. So very often I indulge myself to watching a sitcom or a show. It's ridiculous to deny that a witty comedy can improve your mood, if you are upset or exhausted, because laughter has a similar effect to physical exercise: it improves your state of mind and affects the entire well being. Besides, it's the safest way to get an adrenaline buzz.
It's useless to deny that education benefits greatly from television. It stirs the attention of a student and brings fun and excitement into school routine. Frankly speaking I would have never learned so much about Great Britain or America but for the videos we have watched on TV. A single panel-game or a quiz show will make memorizing ten times more efficient and enjoyable. So TV is a blessing at school .......
So, I'm more likely to conclude that television is a real blessing for humanity. Even the busiest housewives drop their household chores to watch their soap operas. Businessmen freeze in front of the telly to learn the stock exchange news. Little toddlers crawl out of their beds at five in the morning to watch the cartoons. TV gives their parents a chance for a proper sleep at the weekends. Spinsters wipe the tears watching sentimental dramas about unhappy lovers. Millions of disabled and elderly people forget their misery and pain if front of the TV screen. Cooking, cleaning, mending and repairing become much more enjoyable thanks to this magic box. Try to eliminate television from their lives and they'll tear you to pieces!
In conclusion I'd like to say that TV viewers always complain about adverts. However, witty and bright, they may be they are definitely the greatest time wasters. Almost half of the viewing time is wasted on commercials. Pretty often my patience snaps and I turn off the TV set without learning who murdered the old lady or hijacked the plane. That's when I really start hating TV and the time I waste on it.
