    People spend most part of their lives in front of the tv. This object is important from millions of people in the world. Most of them said that tv can contribute to learn a variety of things, for example when they are watching programs at National Geographic channel. Or it is a way to keep the family together at the dinner time, because they can talk about what they are watching.
    Television is a piece of massive media nowadays in the human life. It is a way to control what people think, behaviour with others, dress and buy.
    Soap operas shows exactly what people want to be and why they can change their behaviours.
    Research in Brasil said that sopa operas influence women’s life, specialy their behaviour in marriage and family.
    The number of divorce increased in Brasil and also the number of births is getting lower. Most of this programs is very important for women’s, especialy for the lower class, because they can see other ways of life different from theirs and think to change sometimes their our lifes.
    So in this case soap operas are not worth watching, because people can think yourselves about their only lives. They need to live in a fantasy world.

    In my view, I suppose tv soap operas don’t worth watching for many reasons, three of which I’ll explore in this essay: they aren’t informative, they aren’t interesting and they show absurd situations.
    First, novels don’t show informative content to the viewers as done by news. For example, news offers different kinds of impartial information to their watchers, giving them the opportunity to develop their own opinion and the chance to be up-to-date about the politics, society and happenings around the world, what I believe it’s necessary to help on workers and students activities, because the job market is really competitive nowadays.
    Second, tv programs offer different kinds of entertainment to the viewers,
    many of which pass better content than soap operas. For instance,
    Films are great on transmit disport because they are well worked, sometimes based on books and they also send culture, information and fun to their watchers, unlike novels that have social and commercial appeal. These fiction appeals grab the people attention with the view to boost the tv station’s rating, than the transmitting gain more profits through charge expensive advertisings.
    lastly, I may say that novels frequently pass inadequate content. For example, many times this tv programs don’t have the age group regulation required for the government, in order to help families to prevent inadequate information to their child. Violent, aggressive and sex tenor are often transmitted by this way of communication, what I believe that can prejudice child education, values and culture gave through parents and communities.
    In resume, in my opinion, soap operas don’t worth on watching because they might present weak knowledge and inappropriate information. By the other hand we also have many other kinds of tv programs that show better entertainment programming.
