How close a show aligns to reality is the determining factor on watching a series for you?
In 2008 I watched the only three episodes of Amy Sherman Palladino's sitcom The Return of Jezabell James they were going to show me.
I was patient.
I now have another 4 episodes to view, and I don't remember Jack squat about the first 3, so I actually have 7.
When it bears so little resemblance to reality, yes. It might as well have been called TPBN.
Just considered, I think I wouldn't like the Bond movies as much if they showed a more realistic depiction of the things MI6 has been up to.
Oh, undoubtedly. In a recent piece about George Lazenby, he's quoted as saying: "Fantasy spies fascinate us but it's really BS. Real spies are pretty boring and anonymous, but I guess are a necessary evil." So even Bond himself knows it.
The real hero in bringing Al Capone down was Frank Wilson and Eliot Ness was glorified PR hound, but The Untouchables wouldn't have been a hit if it was just about a couple of guys combing through financial records.
So it's possible Capone was brought down by some guy finding incriminating evidence in his TPS reports. Jason
They can come produce with NBC and just call it University of Chicago (with the hospital, law school and campus police all on the same campus)... and you have the Chicago trifectA
Twilight Zone canceled
That's hilarious considering they've been doing press releases touting Paramount+ having "fan-favorite genre shows" like Disco, Picard, The Stand, and... wait for it... The Twilight Zone. ¯\_(ツ)_/¯
I'm still hoping for Chicago: Sanitation.
