What are you talking about? many of people are saying this is the best era of television ever, at least in terms cable content.

The late 70s didn't quality programing like the Wire, Game of Thrones, Breaking Bad, Mad Men and many other shows found on cable. Television is vastly superior now to what it was in the late 70s.
I disagree. Everything is Daddy issues, and angst, angst, angst.

I'm sick of it.
I think most viewers and TV critics disagree with your assessment. I would say, the Wire is better then TV shows in the 70s.
Well, I can't offer an opinion on that show since I've never seen it, but I will say that one show I've watched recently that offered the kind of storytelling balance I like was Smallville. That had the daddy issues and angst that the kids today think is "deep" while at the same time it knew how to have fun.

Of course, it went overboard on the rock music, but that's another subject entirely.
