    I don't get it you can stream anything now for free!!!!
    All you need is a good internet connection and BOOM! you have everything at your finger tips.
    Retards everywhere.
    I was talking to my sister in law last year about it and she was all like "That's stealing"
    NO it's not it's there already WHAT DIFFERENCE DOES IT MAKE??

    Hey AO great to see you stepping up to the thread creating posts today.

    I don't watch mainstream television and haven't in years. I'm not stupid enough to mentally shut down during moving pictures but when I did I realized I have a tendency to watch the first 15 minutes of the news or other interesting non fiction and as soon as commercials start I find something else to do.

    I do watch YouTube primarily for disturbing documentaries and truecrime videos but generally I browse the internet, do crossword puzzles/sudokus and use instant messenger.

    What do you watch?

    no free streaming service has good quality streams

    i would steal from the media more if i could, but I will not accept low quality streams in my life

    I watch more than I should I need to get a job that I work more than 1 day a week and I should get out more, drinking vodka and smoking weed all day isn't good.
    Well it is but it's not a long term solution.
    So what do I watch? I watched most of Cursed today a netflix thing then I finished better call Saul today.

    I sub to netflix because it's only $17 and I gave up on Kodi because it was too much pissing around..especially when the powers that be clamped down on it.

    No...but I downloaded BBC Iplayer which is free, but blocks the US...so I got a VPN (express VPN) last year to get around that...it lasted for about 5 mins then was blocked...apparently the BBC know and block most/all VPN servers...when they add new ones...they block those too.

    Canceled express VPN.

    it's funny because having this opinion on an entire genre of media is extremely homosexual and immature and it's no wonder women want nothing to do with you.

    you lack the intelligence to understand Japanese culture

    This isn't true. Last month I was betting on something that was only being aired on ESPN+ and I couldn't find a free live stream of the channel for the loife of me.

    Yeah but its not really accurate, its just dumb shit you're saying to sound mean and bad.

    Japan is a largely homophobic and misogynistic society, and their anime reflects that

    cartoons are totally different from anime, it's not the same netflix category, you stupid boomer.

    I like stuff like the family guy, simpsons, south park, futurama and archer but I grew up watching them, it's not something I watch all the time. my friend keeps up with all the new south parks and likes to discuss it

    I'm not against any of these shows I think they stand on their own and appeal to lots of people and it's dumb to just hate an entire genre like people who HATE COUNTRY MUSIC RAWEWIWRWDWDm like okay what about this one song it kinda beeeboop skip pops, no? NO!!!!!! FUCK COUNTRY HICK RED NACK HILLABILLY TRAILER TRASH DHURHR DR AND ALL NIGGER KIKE BEEEPING BOOOPING SKEEPING AND BOPPING THAT LOUD ASS CANT UNDERSTAND WHAT THEY SAYING MUMBLE RAPPERS



    Cartoons is stuff like Adventure time, Regular show, Steven Universe and Rick and Morty.

    To be fair, you have to have a very high IQ to understand Rick and Morty. The humour is extremely subtle, and without a solid grasp of theoretical physics most of the jokes will go over a typical viewer's head. There's also Rick's nihilistic outlook, which is deftly woven into his characterisation- his personal philosophy draws heavily from Narodnaya Volya literature, for instance. The fans understand this stuff; they have the intellectual capacity to truly appreciate the depths of these jokes, to realise that they're not just funny- they say something deep about LIFE. As a consequence people who dislike Rick & Morty truly ARE idiots- of course they wouldn't appreciate, for instance, the humour in Rick's existential catchphrase "Wubba Lubba Dub Dub," which itself is a cryptic reference to Turgenev's Russian epic Fathers and Sons. I'm smirking right now just imagining one of those addlepated simpletons scratching their heads in confusion as Dan Harmon's genius wit unfolds itself on their television screens. What fools.. how I pity them
