    If i wanted to translate the sentence: It seems to me to be perfectly normal for television channels to try to resemble the society they describe.'
    Would it be: 'Il me semble parfaitement normal que les chaines de television essaient a resembler la societé qu'ils décrisent.

    Is that correct?

    Il me semble parfaitement normale que les chaines de télévision essayent (subjunctive) de ressembler à la société qu'elles décrivent.

    PS: I don't know who wrote that, but it is not my opinion. I believe that television producers should improve the education of the masses, not go down to their level. BIG lost occasion to make the human race better!
