Why are TV shows these days so horrible. There are no good role-models. All the "family" shows are all about disfunction. While that may help make your family feel normal, like yours isn't the only dysfunctional family out there, it doesn't give you anything to aspire to. Okay, so not all families can be the Seever's or Huxtable's and we know problems can't all be solved in 30 minutes, but shouldn't there be something to show kids that life doesn't have to be Honey Boo Boo trash. It seems like now it's all sex and lies and shows with no socially redeeming value. It just makes it ok to be screwed up and allows for the downward spiral of morality that seems to be the trend these days. Maybe I'm just old fashioned. I'm only 38, but I remember it used to be better than this.
