When I was writing up the post on my 5 favorite shows, I realized that I kept considering shows and striking them out because I kept having that “it’s just okay” feeling. How come I didn’t love shows straight forwardly like I used to? I finally decided that it’s because nowadays shows – even the good ones – can be inconsistent. Think Homeland, Shameless, Greys Anatomy. In the general sense, I consider them good shows but I always feel some hesitation because if someone disagreed based on a “miss” year, I couldn’t argue with them.

On the flip side, I was listening to a new album and I realized that it’s been a while since I heard an album that I’d want to listen to repeatedly on a loop (save for Bruno Mars 24KMagic – album so dope). I basically listen to a new album and think “ah it’s nice. I liked it” but I never really go back and binge on it like in times past.

It made me wonder if it was really about the quality or if it’s really just that we have too many options to appreciate something good and the bar has been set high. That would probably be a cop out. I think when something is quality, good stuff will always rise the top and stand out. And that’s my final answer ๐Ÿ™‚

What do you guys think?

I agree that it’s partly because we have many more options now. For me, it’s also because as I get older I appreciate different things; I want more substance than fluff. The bar is set higher because I have less time to weed through everything.

I agree with Shade, it’s probably due to over saturation, so many options to pick nowadays. It also applies to music too, before we could go on listening to albums for months, but thanks to the internet, we get bombarded with new releases like everyday.
I will be waiting for your post on designated survivor. ๐Ÿ™‚
