TV as Teacher

It is often heard that TV warps the minds of its viewers. That it dumbs us down. We are urged by car bumpers everywhere to "Kill Your Television."

But sometimes, TV can spread some facts. Even in an often over-the-top drama. Take this episode of Boston Public for example. Although now off the air, this show attempted to educate watchers about teen sexuality and abstinence only funding. Decent drama with accurate facts thrown in for good measure. Enjoy.
