This is a part of our Cambodia forums to chat about anything Cambodia-related. This discussion forum is at the top of our site because it's usually the busiest part of the expat community chatter with random topics on just about everything, including expat life, Khmer politics, Cambodian blogs we have or have come across, or whatever else our members want to discuss. Whether you're an expatriate, tourist, Cambodian or random traveler just passing through South East Asia, you are welcome to talk about anything or start new topics yourselves.
OK, i admit i haven't watched much TV in recent years except in Hotel Rooms. The most boring i found was this constant repetition of news that often enough showed a single perspective to issues that interested me. The Internet on the other hand was delivering tons of different perspectives to an issue which helped me to find something that was hidden between the lines more often than not.
Regarding Movies on TV i found the american Block Busters the .worst because of it's constant flow of violence. Certainly this must have an effect on how viewers see the real life. Few TV channels deliver a balanced picture on global News. Al Jazeera for example.
I only watch tv when I am in a room where others are watching. The Internet provides lots of views but also a lot of bullshit. Al Jazeera, like all big media channels, is bias too. Al Jazeera belongs to Qatar, a country where human rights are not existent. Look under which conditions the workers, who come from poor countries like Bangladesh, Nepal, India and others, build the infrastructure for the World Cup.
Movies and series are just another branch of mass manipulation. I have to admit I watch some series.

Cable TV is almost,, or soon will be ,,,, a thing of the past. They put on programs , propaganda and news that they want you to watch . With the internet you can get most of those tv programs and more and you watch what you want to watch.
Cambodia,,,, Don't fall in love with her.
Like the spoilt child she is, she will not be happy till she destroys herself from within and breaks your heart.
So you only watch rom-coms? There's not a whole hell of a lot going on that doesn't have violence in it. I'm trying to think of something I have watched recently. Netfux has a lot of detective shows on it, do they count? Live tv's ok for sports. Anything else you can find on the internet. Except the rugby, it seems that no fucker streams the rugby.
