"A Question for the Doves"


 
Dear Doves,
 
I am not a fan of current television programming, so I often watch DVDs from earlier time periods: Andy Griffith, Wagon Train, etc.  I have noticed a distinct difference in how I "feel" after the program is over (even during it).  The "newer" shows agitate me and make me uneasy (beyond the programming).   The "older" shows seem to have a calming effect on me and my family.
 
Do you think that they could be adding something to the soundtracks that irritates us at a level we do not perceive?  I have found this to be the case time and time again with older shows and the newer shows.
 
Anyone know anything about this?
