Today we stray a little from our normal methodology here in the “Bewegtbilder” arena. Usually I take the opportunity to introduce the English speaking world to lesser known movies of German origin and language, but today I will introduce you to a German New Year’s Eve tradition: a classic TV skit — in English. Furthermore, I will babble a lot about the media. Consider yourself duly warned.
You can say a lot of bad things about TV. Such as… Nothing good is ever on. Even the commercials get worse every year. They cancel good shows and continue the crap. In today’s world, TV becomes more and more redundant. The selection is too big. The selection is too small. The news are controlled by media companies that could not care less about being neutral.
