Hi folks, I wanted to know the question above in the thread's title. What makes me think the national geogaphic's channel sold out and become much like the history channel these days with aliens making the great pyramids in Egypt/planet nibiru BS is from a old thead on this website I made about Atlantis where joebloe was saying how the atlanits found video I was talking about was just/or most likley a way for the vid makers to sell or make a profit. BBC also had a show about the same thing I was talking about. So did national geographic sell out like the history channel? or not? the same atlantis thing I was talking about appeared as a show(same people) on national geographic here>>> https://www.youtube....h?v=choIyaPiMjo

I can totally see Nat Geo jumping on the crazy train too

 

For me, all those channels are good for is sparking a person's imagination.  At Least when they come up with some outlandish claim a person can then try to investigate the information for themselves.

 

Discovery channel is bad too, I'll never forget my mom calling to tell me about a "great documentary" she watched about somebody finding a real Mermaid, Discovery aired a show called "The Body Found" and it was a fake documentary made to look like it was completely a real story. I wonder how many other people got taken in.  And they even advertised it as fake. Reminds me of The War of The Worlds.

 I'll tune in for a few minutes just to see if the story has changed yet, I'm getting so sick of this episode about the big orange hemorrhoid and the porn star.

 

It's just like The Walking Dead, we finally stopped watching it last season, it got to be too much and it's the same scenario, over and over again and now one narcissistic psycho villain that they just can't get rid of. It was becoming too much like real life.

National Geographic is under the control of Rupert Murdoch, that is why it turned to shit.

Yes, the same damn story line gets so old, doesn't it? This is why many tv shows bore us to tears, & finding anything decent is just about impossible. That's why I always have something else going too while the tv is on.

 

We used to regularly subscribe to the N. Geo magazine for years until when it arrived, was becoming unopened, so we stopped. As for the channel, we seldom  watch.

Oh boy! get ready for Pimp My BunkerRoad Kill Cuisine and Opps! A Shark Ate My Leg.  If you look at the title of some of the shows on Nat Geo now, they leave something to be desired for those of use with discerning tastes.

 

Titles of real shows now,  they have sunk pretty low already. 

 

Wicked Tuna (Hillbillies fishing for Tuna)

Jesus Rise To Power

Killing Jesus

Lost Faces of the Bible

Snake Salvation (remembering the life of Pastor Jamie Coots who was killed by a Rattlesnake) Opps!

Southern Justice (Law enforcement hunting for misbehavin Hillbillies)

 

And they also have  shows with Hillbillies making moonshine and growing weed.

Smokey Mountain Money (watch Hillbillies hunt for Ginseng).

The Story of God With Morgan Freeman (watch Morgan Freeman try to figure out what happens to us when we die) give me a call!

Running Wild With Bear Grylls (watch survivalist Bear Grylls drag celebrities up and down cliffs and make them drink their own urine and eat, oh I don't know, the after birth of some forest creature, or some dead thing they just found, if they are lucky they might find a live snake to BBQ.)

 

I think the only TV channel that hasn't gone off the rails, jumped the shark, etc is PBS.  I find myself there as much as possible when trying to find something decent to watch.

Oh yeah just looking out the window is more entertaining than the crap on TV and I still can't figure out what kind of people really watch this stuff.

 

I watch a show on HGTV called Flea Market Flip, two teams of people buy some junk at a Flea Market and they make it into something else, I like junk so it's a great show for me. They repurpose 3 separate items into 3 new things and then sell them at the Flea Market, the people that make the most profit win and get $5,000.

We watch NCIS, NCIS LA, Blacklist, McGyver, Murdoch Mysteries, Lethal Weapon, some Food Network shows, some HGTV, some Dateline or 20/20, some PBS, some BBC Canada, & I have the CD music channels going all day.

 

I am always on the laptop while watching because I can't just sit & stare at the TV. I used to knit before arthritis messed up my hands/fingers.

Oh hey, we watch Murdoch faithfully.  Sometimes Murdoch drives me nuts because he is so pious, but I love all the main characters. They have good writers, I like how they are always coming up with something that we have now, or an idea for something. Like a microwave or prepackaged meals, like TV dinners (of course George doesn't call them that, but he says you can sit in front of a window and watch people while you eat)  Crabtree always cracks us up. 

Another episode where Crabtree is driving a car with Inspector Brackenreid in the passenger seat, they are in hot pursuit of crooks, and Brackenreid tells him to go faster and Crabtree quips.."Sir! I've already got the pedal all the way to the metal".

 

I watch Dateline and 20/20, anything to do with a good murder mystery.  Hard to believe all the murders that take place!

 

 We watch some BBC America, Luther was a great show and I'm a big Dr, Who fan and loved Torchwood. i always get a good laugh from the Graham Norton Show.

 

Sometimes I just like quiet though.

Oddly, Murdoch was supposed to wrap up after 5 seasons, but the demand was so strong they had to keep it going. For a Canadian production, its been great.

 

All the crossing himself gets to us too, but it was what it was back in the day, but it also has the thing where Julia is not a part of it & they are married. They touch on everything current in some way & it has a lot of humour as well.

 

Love Crabtree! Jonny Harris is also a stand up comedian & he's very good at it.

 

Yes, so many murder stories on the 20/20/Datelines, & usually by the almighty gun!

Murdoch is better than any of the crap from the States. We have never missed an episode. I really don't know how Julia can put up with the man!  and are we really rid of James Gilles for good. It seems so, but I'm waiting for an evil twin or some such nonsense. I really didn't care for that on-going story line. I don't like an arch nemesis always getting the better of the hero, even though they eventually get their just desserts.

 

The stories on Dateline and 20/20 so many shooting deaths and I'd not go hiking with my spouse, especially if we have been having problems anyway and especially if any other previous partners "accidently" fell off a cliff.

Yes, not a fan of the on-going nemesis type stories either, but Murdoch seems to be among the better tv shows these days. The writing is good, the characters are good, & the topics are good. I think the cast fits well together but it seems funny that Helene Joy with a French name, is Australian among the Canadian/Brits.

 

Yeah those cliff deaths are frightening to any spouse, I'd imagine. Personally, I don't go near the edge of anything like that......my dizzy spells hit like gangbusters, so I have to stay faaaaaar back!

We hike a bit, but steep trails carved into mountains sides with very narrow trails and long drop offs make me very shaky and nervous, so I stay off of them as much as possible. Neither one of us like to get near the edge much. Every once in a while I take a nasty spill, twice off of my bike in the last three years.

Once walking down the level asphalt trail here in town, I was just walking along with Glenn and the doggie and I actually looked down at my right foot just as I turned my ankle. And went down with a crash. At first I just laid there on the trail moaning and laughing. The dog was all over me wondering what his mom was doing on the ground.  Glenn tried to help me up, but I had to just lay there for a few minutes. The trail is right next to the main highway through town and it's like walking a parade route, because tons of people are driving by and somebody is always tooting their horn and waving. Anyway nice place to fall down. Man I was buggered up for over 6 months because of that.  My left shoulder and knee took the brunt of the fall. I 've had a few other rather epic falls, but I've bored you all enough already.  Anyway no steep nasty trails for me, I have enough trouble on nice level ground.

 

I didn't know Julia was from Australia.  She is one of my favorite characters

My big thing is falling on stairs. Been like that my whole life, so I don't use stairs without a handrail.....EVER! Then when my hips began with their nonsense, I crawled the stairs on all fours. Back to the handrail now though after the replacement. Don't dare fall now!

I rarely encounter stairs except for four very shallow steps up from our carport, those have rails on both sides and you can hold both at the same time, not scary at all.  At Kaiser facilities I often use the stairs instead of the elevators.  The nearest bank (defined loosely, it's really a Federal Credit Union) has a set of stairs leading up to the entrance that are wide enough you can only use one handrail.  Yesterday for the first time since my hip thing I walked down the middle without touching a handrail. I was being very careful!

Having had an extremely clear demonstration of the consequences, I'm very cautious on stairs and about falling generally.

I fell on stairs regularly as a kid, & continually put my teeth through my bottom lip, which is quite scarred inside.

 

I finally sort of out grew it until fibromyalgia gave me extra clumsies 20 or so years ago. Now with lousy hips, knees, & ankles, I'm very careful to be holding the railing up or down.

 

If I have my laundry basket, I go down backwards dragging the basket along the steps.

 

We have stairs to the basement & I can't avoid them if I need the washer/dryer/freezer, etc. The stairs to the backyard have double railings.....they're great!
