TV has moved up in the moral sense, racism is removed mostly unless it's a plot point, gender gets better treatment (but so overplayed at times). My TV as I was growing up was Callan, Pennies from Heaven, The Singing Detective and the like. I think they still stand up pretty well. OK, production values have improved and with the use of CG it can make stuff look more flash, but I'm talking stories, characters, quality of acting, enjoyment and all of that sort of stuff. I even enjoyed the kids stuff more than now, The Multi Coloured Swap Shop was ace, Tiswas had some great moments (but enough about Sally James in thigh length leather boots), it was all very enjoyable. Now it's all trying to tell kids more adult themed stuff as a form of almost brain washing. On the other hand, some of the new kids stuff is just VERY weird. There are some good shows like Line of Duty, Vera etc but I look at these new shows and they remind me of the old style. A lot of the new stuff is just dire, Love Island, Celebrity Juice to name 2, utter pants if you ask me. I just think some old stuff still entertains a hell of a lot more than some of this new fangled crap..
