For me, I love that I'm disconnected from most of it. Not that it's good or bad, it's just how I choose to live. I'm fond of minimalism and the notion that one can live only on the bare essentials. I find that the less stuff I consume and accumulate (whether it's goods or media) the happier I am. An example of that is trying to share with others, or to borrow items from a friend or a library instead of purchasing them. So yeah, this show really inspired me to do better.
