Which kind of TV is show is best to watch, in order to improve your life?
I think there are some TV shows, movies that is good to watch even on TV, that may help improving one life
If more people would turn off the TV and go outside once in a while, THAT would be an improvement to their lives...
I agree with FatFreddysCat if you really want to improve your life shut off the tv and head outside or read a book. that said I do agree with you that some movies/television shows can have life improvement value, I would say which ones have that value depend on what area of your life you're trying to improve. If you want to improve your spiritual life check out a televangelist. If you need financial advice tune in to Suze Orman. If you want to learn more about science then watch Discovery Channel, Animal Planet etc. And if you just want to be cheerful and ready for the holidays I recommend a sappy Hallmark movie.
Shows like The Wire, which teach you about a world no one wants to talk about, or a show like Rome, The Tudors, The Borgias, Mad Men, Deadwood, or Hell on Wheels, that take you back in time to experience a world we've only read about in school, or shows like Breaking Bad, The Sopranos, Dexter, or Sons of Anarchy, that teach us how people end up on the wrong side of the law and the consequences it has on everyone around them.
People don't seem to realize that there are a lot of talented writers and filmmakers out there who can take us to worlds we can't experience. Good TV shows are like books you can watch (not reality or network TV, but channels like FX, SHO, HBO, AMC), so telling someone to read a book instead is kind of a slap in the face. There are plenty of thought-provoking shows out there, and I'm getting inspired to write a hub with a list of these shows.
We do not have a TV, however, when I do watch some youtube videos I make sure it is something that adds value to my life. Depending on my mood, if I am not feeling chirpy I watch a comedy show. I prefer to watch things that take at least 1/2 - 1 hr so that my attention span does not suffer. On a TV there is a temptation to switch channels.
My recommendation would be to watch inspiring talks on Youtube or TV, positive stories of people helping and empowering others. I like stories about people who have faced their challenges bravely and come out with flying colours.
As a Christian, I like tuning in to Christian television programs. My favorite channel is the trinity Broadcast Network and watch programs such as Joyce Meyer and Joel Olseen. For Movies, Hallmark channel has very good wholesome movies. And as FatFreddy'Cat says it is better to go outside once in a while, away from the television. With the newest innovations of technology, you do not have to sit around and wait for the program. You practically can get watch the programs at you convenience.
