I dont have a connected TV anymore (I think its better without). I tend to buy or borrowing films about animals, nature scenes, interesting cultures and more and watch it later on the computer. I frequent the news sometimes in the internet where I can selectively choose the sources.

I feel the same as you do if I see something near my door or occasionally in the TV (pictures have big impact).
So you are not alone Dinah I feel with you together.
