- Reaction score
Well, shocking just isn't my cup of tea I guess (I even hate horror movies with a passion). Which is not to say I don't keep up with the news but...I am easily depressed by it, and to me I like shows that take me away from the news for the most part...If it is something that touches me on some level I listen and talk about it with my circle of friends, but I could care less about the media reaction..Actually, lol, I get criticized because I do enjoy South Park. And I actually hated it originally until I watched a couple of episodes by accident. For the most part I don't like swearing humor because it's done with no thought or real wit. But SP knows how to use it to actually make it shocking and funny. But more than that, they do address important social topics that literally no one else is touching, in an intelligent manner.
So you know, I think the question of what's quality and what isn't, and what's objectionable and what isn't, is a very complicated issue.
But like I said, I seem to be far less jaded/hip/adult/up to date than most my friends...And I like it that way
