Heya guys, it's been a VERY long time, well by the title of the blog, LA will be ranting about NZ TV....AGAIN. Why?...because LA recently watched a LAUGHABLE news story about "NZ TV violence and you should control what your kids are watching"...with just laughably inane examples.

Brace yourself for some stupidity...because it seems stupidity gravitates to LA for some reason.

Before LA begins, LA couldn't exactly write this kind of article in MAL...because MAL so this was the only place left, secondly and lastly, if the subject isn't KH related...well again...it's a blog, LA can write about anything!.

Ok so the news was talking about how TV violence (and by extension Internet pouring soo much content) is running rampant and should be controlled in NZ and the reporter OUTRIGHT said that Shortland Street...SHORTLAND STREET is a good show of good tv ethics (paraphrasng but you get LA's point).

First pissed off point: TV violence is here and yes it's running rampant, here's the thing, it will continue to grow and having kids aged less than 10 or less is damaging sure, what's stupid with all this is that NZ Cable TV here...well here's the thing, you know how MOST sexual or violent TV programmes are suppose to air late at night like 10 or 11.......NZ TV does most of these starting from SEVEN, so no SHIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIITTTTT kids might get the wrong idea, TV violence isn't going away and if your pleading "ohhh think of the children"!...NZ TV how about stop being a fucking hypocrite and push your more sexual and violent tv programmes later at night..FUCKING ANIME does this, hell even the more aggressively brutal animes is aired at 12 to 3 in the morning (eg. Attack on Titan 2)

Second pissed off point: The reporter claiming Shortland Street is family friendly and with LA's torture of watching Shortland Street for almost a year..LA calls BULLSHIT on that. Yeah how about a soap where cheating is glorified, horrible characters with no characters having scandals, characters die with violence abound in some of the egregious ways, cultural stereotypes are just that...stereotypes, interesting topics like transgenders are wasted potential and again taken the cliched plot (heck ANY time new culturally diverse characters are introduced, the writers let alone the director will shove them into the stereotype route time and again...) and profanity in some of the dumbest ways happen because "comedy" which isn't...it's just dry dry nothing. LA immediately thought that this reporter just didn't watch TV kind of person, either way, claiming Shortland Street is the pinnacle of NZ TV is embarrassing...just fucking embarrassing.

Third point which leads onto Shortland Street: Shortland Street has been LA's punching bag since LA ever heard of it and with good reason, it's a soap, but even then it doesn't mean a soap that has been going on for 20+ years doesn't mean it's immune to criticism, actually it makes it all the more apparent that something HAS to be done to change and NZ TV fucking doesn't realize this, Shortland Street for LA pretty much spawned countless among countless ripoffs of it's itself..-sigh- yeah cos ripping off a tired lazy, repetitive storylines and dull one-dimensional characters are the PERFECT example to ripoff and inspire to be!, anyways see this youtube video about why soaps are still going and this video essentially told me to just give up on Shortland Street...it still fucking sucks to no end...that criticism will NEVER go away.

And this takes LA into LA's next point...

NZ TV being shit...

First read this to get LA's mindset...yes we're going full detail here...

http://www.nzherald.co.nz/entertainment/news/article.cfm?c_id=1501119&objectid=11590381

http://www.nzherald.co.nz/television/news/article.cfm?c_id=339&objectid=11885374

Again with the abundance of NZ soaps being the one and the same, for the people who want to watch other genres will have to look elsewhere and those platforms are there, Netflix, Hulu, hell the INTERNET! is there for them. Everything else?...crappy reality shows (the Nth season of Masterchef (Australia is the exception), crappy iterations of reality shows for NZ (eg. Survivor NZ, The Bachelor NZ or the Nth iteration of a renovation show just FUUUUUUUUCK), documentaries are a rare case and hardly is commercialized to make in lieu for Shortland Street or the next ripoff Shortland Street what have you with Rugby and the All Blacks being the one and only celebrities in NZ and they are abusively used for commercials and selling you shit.

  • Side Note - Hey LA STILL has a pin to prick at Shortland Street, you wanna know why Shortland Street is the most watched and acclaimed and awarded (it hurts writing that sentence) NZ TV show?...because it's televised MORE, for those living in NZ and watch TV, you notice right?, from the teletext that Shortland Street is televised TWICE in the same day and on the weekends, Sunday is DEDICATED to having 2 to 3 hours RERUNS of Shortland Street, so no shit the MOST televised show showed by millions of viewers a day might get the award as it's the ONLY show that's been going for 20+ years, LA will say this again but it going on for even this long, it's not an honor it's a fucking curse and LA's criticism about Shortland Street proves this (and the above youtube video adds to this), hell on speaking of which, since NZ TV doesn't create much shows either almost ANY channel is bound to have a rerun here and there (eg. The Block NZ and the aforementioned Shortland Street). NZ TV is focused entirely on commercials just to it's money's worth because it's government owned and THAT just shows the lazy shit NZ TV gets away with. (to the point that infomercials are ALSO abundant in NZ TV, news reports are stylized more like a gossip article than actual news and trying to be hip and in with the time is doing the exact opposite...what else?..NZ's dry humor..it's there and it also adds into TV trying to be hip like the Internet and fails miserably, hey comedy is subjective and all, but if that's ALL NZ TV's comedy has?..yeah...that's a problem). LA can easily say what is NZ TV's current situation in two words. This FUCKING SUCKS...

NZ TV, get a fucking grip...LA KNOWS LA is bashing on NZ TV and to be frank it should, there's nothing but positivity about all the good shows NZ TV produces but again it's all the same, nothing new and LA's paranoia stems to the point that certain Internet critics looking at NZ shows are bribed by TVNZ to make a review into advertising, TVNZ has no self-awareness that they are getting left in the dust and LA read another article concerning NZTV being in a good industry at this point in time even if half the viewerbase is going into the Internet, but THAT IS A PROBLEM, TVNZ losing HALF its viewerbase while stringing along it's other half loaded to hell with dull and horrible content bullethelled with it's abundance of commericals sounds like their hostaging the other half or brainwashed them into liking their lazy product and the not realizing...

THERE'S ALWAYS NEW AND BETTER CONTENT...

TVNZ just twiddling their thumbs and counting their cash is nothing more than showing to LA that not only Shortland Street but TVNZ in general needs to get their fucking act together otherwise their viewerbase will shrink to the point of them NEVER caring about what garbage they bring out because we'll know...we'll know it's gonna be the same thing they've been doing. It's a classic case of thinking TVNZ, the board of directors, it's focus groups and whatnot thinks that it's audience is stupider than it thinks...here's the thing...we're not, we want better content and if TV won't give it to us.....we WILL look elsewhere.

LA thinks that the Nostalgia Critic says it best...

"Maybe people don't know what's best for them and by continually giving them the same crap they never know what's different so they will just keep asking for the same crap" - From his The Cat in the Hat review (hell just watch that entire review with the mindset of NZ TV instead of Dr. Seuss!)

Sorry for preaching as well as the LONG LONG blog but LA wanted to get all of that out...

    -sigh- NZ TV is fuuuuuuuuucccked.

Anyways comment or whatnot, LA just wanted to post this here...LA is usually in MAL...so see LA there or whatever.

Anyways bye!

UPDATE: Holy crap this is just soo god damn funny...LA isn't (most obviously), NOT the only one thinking the same thing (directing this to TVNZ to be more exact), just read these

https://www.stuff.co.nz/manawatu-standard/business/94466546/Nadine-Higgins-Poor-old-TVNZ-its-on-a-hiding-to-nothing

https://www.stuff.co.nz/entertainment/tv-radio/94397251/tvnz-says-kiwis-are-treating-netflix-like-a-pet-but-theyre-not-getting-much-in-return

and even read the comments!

Basically they are both saying that Netflix sucks and TVNZ is the king of viewership and gives us what the masses wants...

PFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTT...

Again, the commenters basically side with LA and LA is just LAUGHING at TVNZ at their viewpoint on all this, saying that they will pretty much stay the same and it's "loyal" viewerbase will stick with them while Netflix is a more expensive platform. Really it's just basically a POSITIVE advertisement towards Netflix instead of it's intended purpose of making TVNZ making itself look better...which it doesn't.

God damn seriously TVNZ, get with the times now, because if you don't you WILL die along with your crappy programmes...

Ohhh thank you TVNZ, you just solidified yourself in saying we're not gonna change so deal with it, instead of changing for the better with BETTER programmes with quality control and less reality bullshitting programmes...

Ahhh fuck you TVNZ.........

just FUCK. YOU. TVNZ.
