I can't stand most modern shows, the plots are paper-thin and involve little (if any) actual acting, plus most are pushing some sort of agenda these days, much worse than in the past. People simply want to be entertained, not preached to.Frans, what's great about M*A*S*H, and I bet all of those shows
you listed though is the amount of thought, and work that went
into them. I don't know if you notice this with of a lot of today's
shows, or not. But it feels like although the quality is good, they
don't put as much effort into the stories, and shows in general. 🙁
A lot of times not much happens in a modern show. Then within
the last five minutes, something happens in order to get you to
watch the next episode. 😄
Last decent show I saw come out of the states was CSI (the original Las Vegas), that was fantastic.
I will qualify that by saying I have never, ever seen a single episode of Game of Thrones, Breaking Bad or anything that is "popular culture". I watched one episode of Westworld Season 1, it was horrible.
