Todd:Now you've been in Japan for awhile. Do yo watch TV in English or in Japanese?
Marika: I watch TV in Japanese, but if it's on in English I will watch it in English. Yeah, I'm the same way. Um, how good is your comprehension? How much can you understand? If it's a drama I can understand most of what's happening, and definitely the story, but if a talk show and there's young people on and there're speaking fast, with a lot of slang, I don't really understand a lot of what they're saying, although I might know what topic they're discussing, I won't know what exactly their stand is.
Todd:Do you think that TV is bad for people?
Marika: Yeah, I think that TV is bad for people. It's really bad.
Marika: Because instead of reading a book or doing something outside, or doing something productive you just sit in front of a TV and absorb bad information or things that don't really help, help you learn anything probably, although Japanese television I think does have a lot of good documentaries and a lot of informative television programs.
