Re: Unimaginative Kids...

Why not? The artifact (man-made, fossil, etc.) doesn't move and the T.V. is so familiar, and flashy, with lights and movement. What do you think would be the most attractive to today's little dried sponge brains?

Well, in the defense of TV and the film medium in general, a certain 1993 dinosaur film which I will not name actually inspired a number of impressionable little minds to discover the world of dinosaurs for themselves. So it's not so much the medium itself as the way in which it is used, methinks.
