History[ edit ] The Godzilla film series is broken into several different eras reflecting a characteristic style and corresponding to the same eras used to classify all kaiju eiga monster movies in Japan.
In according to a report by Nielsonthe average American household had 2. That same average household owned 2. I guess the good news is that on average we can now safely watch whatever we want, whenever we want, without having to share or spend time with anyone else.
An average family of four can each sit in different rooms and watch different television show at the same time. What could be more American than that?
The same report showed that the average American watches 4 hours and 35 minutes of television each day. So at the very least, it looks like we are getting our mileage out of all these televisions.
Television and watching movies on television was our primary form of entertainment. On the other hand, during our year traveling abroad we rarely, if ever, watched television.
Earlier this year when we made the decision to spend 6 months back in our home region of Indiana, a television was one of the first items we acquired. At first, we just got it for movies — or so we claimed.
So once again, we were back to life with cable television. To start, we just watched one show together — American Idol. Then we started watching another series… and then another. We had nearly one show for each night of the week. Last month, we once again downsized as we moved from our 3-bedroom house we were renting into our new, temporary 1-bedroom apartment.
One of the first things to go? After a fresh month without the magical box of mindless entertainment, Courtney and I have been reminded of the reasons we love life without television so much. More Conscious of Entertainment One of my biggest griefs with television is how quickly and easily it can become the default option.
Maybe there are people who can control it better, but whenever I have a television available it seems to slowly, but surely become the default option for any downtime I have.
One reason for this is because our society sets it up to be that way.
For most of us, our living rooms are built around one main feature — the television. It dictates where the other furniture goes and how the room is set up.
Sure, there are certain shows or sports events I actively and passionately choose to watch. Increased Creativity Along the lines of the first reason, the less access to television I have the more creative I become.
Without television, I find myself practicing and playing the guitar more. We read books more.
We listen to more music as a family rather than having the television on in the background. We play more games together — a much more intimate and active form of entertainment. You may be different, but I find that the more creative the form of entertainment — the more happy I am.
Lack of television as the default option forces you to brainstorm more diverse solutions. Sure, we sometimes can find ourselves simply replacing television with another dominating option think online games or internet surfing for examplebut eliminating or drastically reducing television is a step in the right direction for us.
More Active In addition to increased creativity, our entertainment also tends to be more active by nature without a television. We go outside more. We are more likely to take a walk or play a game outside. We are more likely to stick to exercise plans and spend more time cooking rather than opting for the quickest option we can eat in front of the television.
Heck, we even run errands more often.
Is there any doubt in your mind that this negatively affects both the amount and the quality of sleep? But, once again, television is usually the easiest and most readily available. So we go with that.Lion Force Voltron is a super sized robot from the animated series entitled Voltron, Defender of the Universe.
The series featured a team of five young pilots that commanded five robot lions which could combine to create the super giant robot, Voltron. This is a list about TV shows that made a difference changed the world, or America changed culture changed the way we talked, thought and (mostly) watched.
Changed you. Changed me. While most movies are mass-produced entertainment and escapism, there are some that have had a profound impact on culture. Whether intentionally or not, some films have brought social issues to light, affected laws, forwarded ideologies both good and bad, and generally changed the course of history through their impact on society.
Yep. On average, American households have more televisions in the home than people living in it. I guess the good news is that on average we can now safely watch whatever we want, whenever we want, without having to share or spend time with anyone else.
