Morality TV

Posted on

This morning as I was driving to work I saw two motorcycle officers riding side by side in the HOV lane on the opposite side of traffic. I couldn’t help it, I started laughing as my mind replayed the opening to CHiPs – the show from the 80’s about the California Highway Patrol.

LMAO, I can hardly sustain my giggles as I write this, what a lame show that was eh? Preview to Cops I suppose but still hilarious, much like Cops is today, what do you do when you hear Oasis?

All this reminded me of some of the shows I used to watch all the time when I was a kid, great shows that actually had values and morals built into the story line. Not that I’m complaining about the TV of today, but morality on TV is hard to come by these days, I don’t think you’d disagree. Want an example? Rehab on TruTV, WTF?

Take for example, The Cosby Show:

Or, Different Strokes, when they weren’t afraid to talk about spankings on television:

Instead, this the kind of crap we can see, any night of the week:

I’ll stick with watching the Dallas Mavericks.

  1. No kidding! I get irritated because even cartoons have lost their morality. Whatever happened to He-Man and She-Ra, The Justice League (the one that actually taught values and morals, not the crap they have now), Punky Brewster? I think the TV guys are afraid to offend people who have no morals. So sad…

    • I remember watching She-Ra and Wonder Woman and The Cosby Show, they were funny, smart and my mom didn’t worry about what they were talking about. I remember when The Simpsons was the worst thing on TV.
