Rather actual shows than the Reality TV & Talent Show trash that's permeated entertainment for years now.

Is kind of what I'm looking at for Summer TV...I don't find it depressing. I usually find most of the other "stuff" that's on TV to be depressing.
sunday: people board a ship documentary. (20.3 million viewers)

monday: ship sets sail and the history of the ship is documented (18.6 million)

tuesday: the ships crew tells the world how good they are at dealing with disaster and their experiences. (15.1 million)

wednesday: celebrations, cake and other fun. (10.7 million)

thursday: next day hangover, a show about escape rafts, rubber orange dinghies! (7.7 million)

friday: the ships finest day. (3.5 million)

saturday: ship his a rock and starts sinking, everyone makes it off the ship. (46.8 million!) - show already cancelled due to bad viewing statistics.

I would say a case of art imitating life. Economic depressions, war on this, war on that, watch your back or the terrorist is going to get you, be wary of the shady government, envinronmental catastrophies.

It will pass in time. We just need something else to busy our minds. Like a warp engine, now that would brighten the mood.

thats what you call scaremongering in order to drive people to a certain thing, in the usa you making people nervous of their middle eastern neighbours, they go out buy a gun and ammo (success to the media hype) and then spy on their new neighbours while trying to equally and hypocritically deal with the rights as a free man and privacy (completely ignorant that their neighbours just want a new life and are very friendly).

so yeah, thats a can of worms thats opened and its best to close it up.

Dunno. SpongeBob's still on the air, right?

Dude, just do what I do. Watch My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic.

It's the only show out there with a positive message, interesting storylines and Tara Strong, who has a nice badonkadonk.
You haven't heard "Jukebox Hero" until you've heard it in the original Klingon.

Other than SG-1 (Poland's SciFi from 4-6 PM CET, not sure if its counterparts in other countries are doing the same) or SGA (none that I know of) reruns, there doesn't seem to be much. I tend to go play games to compensate.

If only I had a sense of humor... (I can understand it quite well, and find it quite amusing, but I couldn't come up with my own jokes if my life depended on it)

Infinite possibilities have implications that could not be completely understood if you turned this entire universe into a giant supercomputer.
And I don't pretend to understand them.

Watch Red Dwarf on a loop. A used space, after apocalypse, setting that won't make you cry with depression.

My take on it was a surplus of fake blood and such, not sure what to think now. Also do the syfy people even know what science fiction is?
