    Go back 20, 30 years and the same thing will have happened, just a replay also.

    .
    the first and last thai that ever paid back a loan was thaksin.
    oh, i forgot
    wasn't he supposed to be chinese, or something?
    so i suppose it doesn't count............

    he kinda almost had a half decent tv station going at one time, too (well, compared to the other thai slapstik and brainwashing, anyway).

    "Human Interest" stories are the plague of news services all around the world, not just in Thailand.

    There is no middle ground, it is either black or white.
    Not like the Daily Mail and Fox News then?

    No, it's not just you, but why are you worrying about it? You don't seem to like the people, so let it go; there's nothing you can do about it anyway. Let the Thais be Thais and concentrate on becoming a good role model to your family instead of a coarse, hot-headed, in-bred northern monkey.

    I bet not even the fluent speaking Farang could subject themselves to watching this kind of "Entertainment" and be honest!!
    later in the evenings, after the game shows, the soaps and the girly chat, they sometimes do have decent interviews, discussions, documentaries and human interest stories fronted by inquisitive, intelligent and informed presenters. fewer commercials too. for those who understand thai, or have a good translator to hand, they can be worth watching.

    its not all flashing lights, jealousy fuelled soap characters and slapstick midgets

    but tv is mainly for the masses, and the masses here seem to enjoy puerile shite, so thats what they mostly give them.

    I guess I am the only one who kinda likes Thai TV? I enjoy how their TV shows are like the US's shows of the 50's 60's and 70's. Nice and simple. Stupid slapstick comedy.
    I dont watch too much TV here in the US anymore mostly Documentaries and some Sci-Fi stuff as most US TV is shite! I find Thai TV to be more entertaining than 90% of the crap in the US.
    My wife got me watching some lakorns. I think they are pretty funny she thinks there serious lol at least we both get enjoyment out of it.

    I cant figure out why you would complain about the Thai news when the news everywhere else is just as bad?
    I'm not saying it was Aliens, but it was Aliens!

    he lives in a country where he intensely dislikes the people and the culture

    add to that the fact he has anger management problems and he is not a happy bunny (or monkey)

    all he has to do is calm down, find the enjoyable things in life and ignore those he finds nasty
    I have reported your post

    Admittedly, yes, it is different to back home, but back home has a lot of shit too, but nothing surpasses the level of shite that these people are willing to watch!

    I have my wife and son yapping on for me to buy a satellite receiver, it receives, Thai, Laos, India, and another hundred and something channels of shit!

    I have 7 channels of shit already, why in gods' name would I want to buy more!!!

    If you hate Thais so much, why not leave and post on UK forums?

    Do you think moaning and bitching on forums will change Thai culture to what you want it to be or will make your life better?

    Why watch it and complain about it?
    I ditched the thai tv and got on the internet long time ago. Just everything can be had on the internet nowadays and it's FREE!

    So no need for me to waste my times complaining.

    Sort of depends a lot on what you get here.

    1: The TV is shit!
    2: The internet is shit (TOT)
    3: The telephone is shit (TOT)

    I'd love to be abvle to get everything over the internet...but like I say, pretty much as everything here seems to revolve around a standard of SHIT!

    I had a better internet connection in "Backward" China ten years ago than these idiots can provide!

    One thing we can bank on, they will never be the "HUB" of anything here, or maybe they will, the hub of regression!


    Edited as there is no such thing as an eelephone unless you are an eel!
