Americans just keep getting dumber and dumber. There is absolutely nothing worth watching in this series. And why is a rock band considered 'art'? No more donations from me until they bring back programming for literate people! The HMS Pinafore production was a total disaster. It was like they deliberately set out to ruin a wonderful operetta to pander to the lowest common denominator.

pbs hit a new low with the most recent episode of American Masters. Watching a bunch of musically illiterate drug addled morons play their so called 'music' was a disgusting experience! Once again pbs aims low! Shows like this are the reason I no longer donate at pledge time!
