Now, TV plays a more and more important role in our life and also brings argues about this kind of entertainment tool. Some people think that TV has destroyed communication among friends and family, but in my opinion, TV has never destroyed communication among people. The reasons are as follows:
Firstly, the program on TV can bring tons of topics as friends talk to each other. When two friends meet, they often have a small talk before a formal communication. The TV show of last night is the best topic of this small talk. For example, when Jack meets Joel in street, Jack can mention about last night’s NBA show on TV if Joel is a fans of NBA. They can turn to a formal talk next. In most instances, TV can bring the topic of communication.
Secondly, when family members sit together to watch TV, it creates a chance for members to communicate. Our society is a fast pace society. Every people spends lot’s of time on studying and working, so they have not enough time to communicate to each other. At night, when they are watching TV, they have an opportunity to ease their nerves and have time to communicate with their family members.
Finally, TV is just a kind of entertainment tool. It can not destroy the communication among people, only people can destroy their own communication.
All in all, I think TV not only provide the topic of communication, but also provide the opportunities of communication. So, TV has never destroyed the communication among friends and family.
