I remember when the shows I got excited to see were things like AUTOMAN and MANIMAL (hey, I was seven; gimme a break). Now, just to name four shows that people like, we've got BATTLESTAR GALACTICA, DOCTOR WHO, HEROES, and SUPERNATURAL, and we've got them ALL AT THE SAME TIME. And we've got more shows on top of that. Even when the shows aren't great or groundbreaking, they're solidly entertaining and fun. I can't remember ever having this many choices of good stuff to watch. And that's just SF/fantasy.
This really is a golden age of entertainment. And I'm enjoying being entertained.
