Re: sf/f TV development news - 2013

^But showing a protagonist taking pills that give him power could fall under the category of "imitatable acts" and risk giving impressionable young viewers the wrong idea about what kind of behaviors they should emulate. At least, I can believe that the networks would fear that possibility. Sure, maybe you could get a rich and meaningful story about drug addiction out of it, but I'm not surprised that the CW would prefer to play it safe and avoid the issue.
