I'm really complaining about the "over the top" aspect to the content. Some of the content is horrific. Selling limbs, buying limbs etc. It just seems that the people producing the series are having to get more and more extreme in the story lines to satisfy the audience.

I watched Criminal Minds the other night. There was a guy buying limbs that he had a fetish for. They caught him but then had to go after the guy that was cutting the limbs off the victims and selling them to the highest bidder over the internet. How sick is that? And some of us watch that with relish. ;) I had bad dreams after watching that episode.

I wonder where it's going to be like is 5 or 10 years time. Today's audiences will get used to the present content and demand more radical content. The series producers are going to try and out do their opposition and make their content more radical. It's going to get worse, guaranteed.

I know, if I don't like it, don't watch it. Not so easy. We watch TV in bed and my partner is addicted to these shows. I'm just trying to understand the whole set up.
