->...as Creator/AndyWarhol so wisely observed, people will always prefer to look at something than nothing; between plain wall and flickering commercial, the eyes will have the second. As hearth and fire were once center to the home or lair so now the television set is the center of modern man's being, all points of the room converge upon its presence and the eyes watches even as the mind dozes, much as our ancestors narcotized themselves with fire.

->The continuity of the show is [[NegativeContinuity completely haphazard]]. Itís haphazard by design. Itís not like they are trying desperately to maintain continuity of the show. [[TheyJustDidntCare They donít care]], and theyíll tell you flat out that they donít care. Well, that is misreading the core audience. The ''Star Trek'' hardcore audience loves continuity...you are aiming towards the person that is grabbing a beer, and isnít really paying attention, and is walking out of the room every ten minutes and coming back and sitting down; all you are going to do is [[LowestCommonDenominator dumb down the show]].

->Compare this to, say, [=McDonald's=]. You'd never go to the restaurant and wonder what your order is going to consist of. Their commercials run a million times during the day, and in the restaurant itself, you're bombarded with information in the form of giant menus which not only describe in detail what is in each meal, but also feature full-color pictures of the meal in question. If [=McDonald's=] only served one item--the [=McMystery=] Meal--and you never knew whether you were going to get a hamburger, chicken nuggets, a fish sandwich, or whatever, few would dare to purchase it.\\\
{{Wrestling/WCW}} pay-per-views were like [=McMystery Meals=]: you never knew what you were going to get. WCW never bothered to run down their cards on TV, fearing that fans would switch over to ''[[Wrestling/WWERaw Raw]]'' while they were doing this. Ironically, they'd then complain that nobody was buying their [=PPVs=].

->I have two older kids who really enjoy using [=iPods and iPads=] and every other variant of world-shunning personal pan tablet technology available, and they tend to ignore the television in our home entirely. The only exception to this is when I take the iPods away and they beg to watch the TV because itís the screen of last resort. Itís the last girl left to ask to prom.\\\
So when I can get them to put away the tablets and watch an entire movie on a TV set, I feel VICTORIOUS. I feel like I just convinced them to read War and Peace, even though all they did was watch a stupid fucking movie that was probably just as harmful for their brains. By modern standards, sitting still to watch something for two hours is a legitimate effort. I know this because I feel the same way whenever I personally watch a whole movie or prestige TV show now, too. Iím like, ďWow, I finished ''Series/TrueDetective''. And I didnít even check my phone once! Good job, me!Ē Iíve seen people put DVD box sets of ''Series/TheWire'' up on a shelf, and I promise you that [[GeniusBookClub they deliberately made it prominent.]]

->Yes, this version of ''Film/TheMuppetChristmasCarol'' has a glaring omission that actually makes the final product feel incomplete. There's a very important song, 'When Love Is Gone,' that fully fleshes out the story between Scrooge and his former love, Belle. It also provided greater insight as to when Scrooge's transformation from inspired chap to cold and heartless finally took its toll, but {{Disney}} execs felt it wouldn't appeal to children and decided it needed to be axed. Fortunately, it made its way to home video releases after the fact, but this release once again has the song missing. It's not even available as a standard def supplement...It's going to be an unfortunate deal breaker for many. I can't for the life of me figure out why Disney decided to regress the film back to its 'unfinished' state - Once introduced to the masses on home video, the sequence was highly regarded and praised for improving the film.

->''Film/TheLittleMermaid'' could have been just another Disney fairy tale about a princess who wants "[[IWantSong more]]" and searches for it down the pants of some dude she just met. The film's theme song, "Part of Your World," thankfully changed all that... Jeffrey Katzenberg, then chairman of WaltDisney Studios, didn't want the song to be a part of the movie's world because he thought kids would find it boring. He arrived at that conclusion after a kid in the test audience spilled his popcorn during the scene, which to Katzenberg meant that the sequence was so mind-numbingly dull, it actually caused the child's higher motor functions to commit suicide.
