A quote by Steve Jobs
When you're young, you look at television and think, There's a conspiracy. The networks have conspired to dumb us down. But when you get a little older, you realize that's not true. The networks are in business to give people exactly what they want. That's a far more depressing thought. Conspiracy is optimistic! You can shoot the bastards! We can have a revolution! But the networks are really in business to give people what they want. It's the truth.
The crap dished out on the Indian tv is mind numbingly bad. The actors in those serials go through the complete spectrum of human emotions in 30 minutes (even less than 30 minutes, if you factor in the ads). The really disheartening part about the whole thing is that there is no conspiracy.
