Modern reason compared to that of fifty years ago is quite amazing. I'm a big fan of watching old movies and television. They seem to give us a glimpse into the thought and culture of the time in which the movie was made. I know we can't judge a time based on its media. Can you imagine being judged by what is currently on television and in movies? However, there are glimpses into the time period through the themes, scope and format of dialogue, reasoning, and structure of plot. These glimpses sometimes show how simple minded people must have been. Have you ever watched the old "Planet of the Apes"? Although quite remarkable in concept, deliverance of the story to the people of that time period is at best hilarious.

I wonder what will be said about SGA fifty years from now and how they will look back at us today.

In our family, we choose not to watch network television. Instead, I've got my son hooked on DVDs of reruns of "I love Lucy", "Gilligan's Island" and "Hogan's Heroes"... It's amazing how stupid these shows are, but they are clean and free of constant sex talk and sex jokes... there is quite the difference from "modern" network television. Is that good or bad?
