I’ve been a fan of Vice ever since back when it started as a magazine only. I equally appreciate Viceland and the reason simply is that I feel challenged, surprised and that they really are doing their best. I notice that when I listen to it, certain association of words, quotes and/or dialogues resonate with me. I often keep thinking about a part or a little bit that stays in my head for a while. They treat their audience with a lot of respect and don’t serve them anything that is ”Crap TV”. Sometimes I watch it and I do feel that it’s really the kind of TV I would enjoy to see more often. Not pretentious, not artificial, not taking themselves too seriously, always trying to raise the bar or to keep it at least really up to a certain degree of quality and respecting every aspect of their audience individuality. Vice does it with the most honest, clean, intelligent and relevant programs possible. I think it’s important that we say that we do not get any thrills out of the usual standard TV chanels and if it’s not news, a good movie, anything related to Art or approached with an artistic point of view, well it should definitely be something like Vice. It’s the most honest TV I know without being cheesy.
Vice is a little to TV what Punk was to music. I need that. I need to be stimulated or intelligently entertained. Their self advertising is also really refreshing. I would gladly give them the contract to realise an ad for my business or advertise a service or whatever… These guys are fresh but not sloppy. I just thought I should voice it up since watching TV is now so much part of our life.
