Subject: What will people remember about this decade?

Written By: Italian_hunk on 10/17/09 at 1:34 pm

What will people remember about this decade?
I think those things will be Y2K, 9/11, bad music (especially 2005-2009) and bad, fluffy 80s-like hair (2007-2009).

The decade we went on a 'crusade' against Afghanistan and Iraq.

I-Pod, Myspace, Facebook, Twitter, Google, etc...

80's nostalgia, emo, indie rock, huge explosion of rap in 2008.

So... it appears to me most of us will remember that decade as really really bad. Most of what you and the others replied are bad things. That really is the worst decade ever, huh? The only positive things stated were Obama, cell phones , Web 2.0 (Myspace, Facebook etc.) and DVDs. It's so bland when you compare it to any of the previous decades. Previous decades just screemed "Cool"!

Reality TV. From Survivor and Big Brother's big debuts in 2000, the genre has basically prevailed. Also MTV meaning Moronic Television and Nickelodeon catering to 2-8 year olds. Also, lots of AD CREEP- the ever-increasing instance of advertisements (commercials within TV shows, before movies, Supergraphics, on moving vehicles, and on roads.

Why does everybody make reality TV in 2009 seem like its as popular currently from 2000-2004 because it is not. Reality TV was pretty popular in the first half of this decade I'll give you that but not really the last half.

I personally am not really sure why people do that either.  Reality tv is still popular, but it's popularity is mostly confined to the cable networks.  It's nowhere near as bad on the regular networks as it was back in the first half of the decade.  2005 was when drama type stuff like Lost, Desperate Housewives, and all that got popular, pushing out the highly saturated reality tv genre.  I was so glad that happened too as network tv was absolutely godawful from 2002-2003.  I think some of the people on this board tend to paint the 00s with a very broad stroke and assume that each year is worse than the year before.  There's tons of crap reality tv, but there's plenty of good shows out there.  Also, keep in mind that while they didn't have reality tv, previous decades had tons of generic copycat sitcoms with no originality at all.

Rap was really popular from 2003-early 2006 and 2007-July 2008. It has been electro-pop that has been popular since late 2008.

Yeah 2005-2006 was when the 1 hour drama TV category became king on TV. Than in 2007-September 2008 was when the game show genre became with "Deal Or No Deal", "Don't Forget The Lyrics, and "Are You Smarter Than a Fifth Grader" than the game show genre fell out of favor right after when the econmomic recession took place.
