    Do you think the culture within the entertainment industry needs to change?

    I have pulled myself away from a lot of it and looking at it from the outside, I think the direction it has been heading for the last 20 or so years has not been a good one. A lot of it is flooded with politics and propaganda to the point where you feel as if you are being conditioned, not entertained. Then you have the other aspects being music, TV shows, and movies sending bad messages out there that revolve around self-pleasure and self-indulgence. We are already facing the highest rates of mental health issues in history coupled with green and selfishness... It is mindblowing.

    Do you think the culture within the entertainment industry needs to head in a different direction?

    Probably. My favourite TV show, 24, turns twenty this year. So you could call it a rather old show. The first season only very lightly touches on politics, but the subsequent seasons do get more political. I mention it because while the politics do explore then-current matters, the show always did it in a mostly subtle in-universe way. It didn't feel shoehorned at all and that's the difference. 24 does make viewers consider topics like terrorism, racism and war crimes, but none of it is in an in-your-face way like these days.

    I don't like being told what to think by modern television and films. I think it was when gender identity politics were pushed into fiction that entertainment started going downhill.

    Regardless, I don't see it changing to be honest. If that means I'll be exploring more older films and shows than new, so be it. After all, we have a lot of choice. Pretend it's the 2000s.

    It seems like everything started tanking around 2011... The irony of that. That was around the time Twitter became mainstream and massive numbers were joining it to follow famous people and all that mess. I think it would have been okay had the Tumblr people not joined but even then, they have a massive issue with pedophiles on that platform. I am glad I left it. I feel like that is one of the big areas where they get ideas for stories and stuff these days too as if some random people crying on Twitter speak for everyone. Oh well. I am with you, I will just go back and enjoy older shows and movies if that is what I have to do. God knows there is a lot out there. More than enough to enjoy for a lifetime.
