I’ve like to watch local TV and have been trying to make sense of all these shows because I think they will help me understand culture and continue to improve my Chinese comprehension. But to me, it’s like all these shows are stuck in some time warp or something. I occasionally catch similar shows from China on youtube or whatever with a lot of variety, but they definitely have shows current on issues and everything else. It’s like “what is this modern Chinese TV show portrayal because it’s definitely not Taiwan”.
- They mostly all seem to mostly be older like 5, 10, 20 years old which I guess is ok for learning older culture but not current culture. Some are newer, but still seem to be in an older setting including clothing and styles. Or maybe it’s still Taiwan today.
- Even the variety shows, which are normally current, are 5 or more years older, which is strange watching people and issues that were popular 5 or 20 years ago.
- Seems like everyone wears older styles and hair and action even though it could be present so it really throws me off.
- I’ve asked my Taiwan friends and I’m not really getting clear understanding.
How do you know which ones are current in the last couple years and which ones are older because they all seem to be old style clothes, actions, culture, etc. looking like I’m in a place where time has stood still.
Are these types of Taiwan TV shows stuck in a time warp or is that just the way current ones are presented? What are the names of current TV channels or shows that show real life today?
