A small gem

From today's Ilta-Sanomat, the TV section:

20.15 Usko tai älä
Päähän ammutulta pojalta poistetaan toinen aivolohko. Amer. viihdeohjelma.

In English:

8.15pm Believe it or not
A brain hemisphere is removed from a boy after a shot in the head. American entertainment show.

Entertainment?

We live in a sick and twisted world.

I'm quite glad I don't watch TV or even program information...

I can't help but think of the extremely powerful ending of the movie Thesis by Alejandro Amenábar. Recommended.

Well, they call the Osbournes and the McCoy's "entertainment", too. With over 100 channels on regular cable TV, the US has to find a way to fill it with crap 24 hours a day. Game shows, soaps, court TV, food TV, surgery TV, reality TV, etc. Sadly, Finland seems to import much of it and adapt it for Finland.
