Interesting points. However, and I always have an 'however', as Orwell put it so well, when we constrict our language we lessen the breadth of our thinking. Tim was not saying that any one creative endeavor was 'better' or 'more worthy' than another, only that when there are fewer options we are diminished as individuals and as a species. That is as true of film and TV as it is of books and political opinions.

I find it interesting that a Shakespeare play was mass entertainment in its day and, pre-covid at least, his plays are still available to be seen and read. When I was a kid it was a 'Brian Rix' farce or a 'Carry On' comedy that played at our local theater. At the time I found Brian Rix extremely funny. I don't always need Shakespeare but I would be diminished without it.
