    Default Japanese TV: I hear its terrible

    welcome to a world of j/krn dramas which have one and only one objective, to make you cry

    bolt that to a handful of variety shows

    melded to a foundation of oppinion shows and you have basically what is japanese tv

    wondering if its possible to get some sort of direct TV so i can get english channels like CNN/comedy central/spike etc

    what do you folks have to say

    you sir, are a grade A troll. and if you are being serious, which i know you aren't, i think someone mentioned getting some sort of cable package that included US channels. i'd just stick with hulu or something...

    btw, did you apply through the LA consulate??

    #1 I am not a troll and have no idea why people keep saying that

    #2 hulu is not allowed outside of the USA

    #3 no

    perhaps you think im a troll cause i use 'jap' when speaking about japanese electronics
    I told you guys it has nothing to do with racism (after all if i was racist against japanese people why would I apply to JET in the first place) the reason is that it is the official name for the region japan for electronics

    I could simply use the letter J but I fear that people wouldnt know what im talking about and writting out japanese for everything is redundant no?

    There are a couple of threads with info you might find useful in. I'm guessing no one can be bothered to discus what they have probably discussed many times over before, as much as you cant be bothered to spend an hour digging up the info.

    Looks like your stuck with variety shows and J-Dramas coming out of your tele-box

    J-television isn't all bad.

    Is anyone else completely entranced by the latest NHK 8oclock time slot offering, げげげの女房? i am almost late to school every day because i have to watch it all. During the first hour of work, i spend most of my planning period trying to decide if Fumie-chan can really be happy in Tokyo. Today her arranged marriage husband got her a used bicycle, but is that really enough to make up for that big fight they had yesterday? that is when i feel the cultural barrier really hard, because i know that in america it would not be, but perhaps japan is different and a present really can heal the world. for fucchan's sake, i hope this is so.

    also. Red Theatre is pretty hilarious. It's a bit like Mad TV or Saturday Night Live, and if you copy the jokes they do on there, Japanese people will laugh with you and not at you.

    That was 463 characters you just spent explaining why you absolutely must shorten an eight-letter word to three.

    ppl will talk due to boredom and ranking up posts. Digging is for gold diggers

    Great men of action never mind on occasion being ridiculous; in a sense it is part of their job.

    TV is overrated. Not just Japanese, but anywhere.

    yeah, because who needs free flowing drugs and alcohol fueling adventorous sex with taut, lithe young bodies when you could wander around a dying town in the freezing cold with a can of asahi super dry in your hand while some toothless old farmer shouts at you.
