    the power of "throw away" disposable culture--from a high art traditional perspective--is powerful, fascinating, and yet to me surprising.

    on this show and others, i am fascinated by fandom and how people are so invested in a thing that they become immune and/or defensive when it is critically interrogated in any way. their brains often turn off because a show making tens of millions of bucks for folks who are not them is somehow "their" show.

    transference? supporting a team? tribalism? all of that?
