50. I watch it too, because I understand the difference between fiction and reality.
Edited on Tue Mar-02-10 10:39 PM by Political Heretic
My rules for fiction do not include that the stories must always be about people who I like, or agree with, or who share my morals, though I like many works of fiction that do. They don't have to have a positive message, though I like many works of fiction that do. They don't have to share my politics, though I like many works of fiction that do.

They simply have to be interesting and entertaining to me in some way.

I have to reject the notion of some here that the kind of fiction you watch is "right" or "wrong." And it surprises me actually that so many here would be so quick to moralize.

Like it, don't like it. Watch it, don't watch it. My favorite character on Lost is Ben Linus... doesn't mean I want to be like him or think that's how the work should work. He's a sociopath....

....but he's awesome! Common... admit he's awesome. :D

Anyway, you get my point.
