A Viewer's Responsibility
At the heart of much speculative fiction (and fiction in general) is a question. What if? On Tuesdays I like to throw one out there and see what you make of it. Do with it as you please. If a for-instance is not specified, feel free to interpret that instance as you wish. And if you find this becomes a novel-length answer, I'd appreciate a thank you in the acknowledgements. 😉
I'm sure you already heard all about the harassment allegations against the star of Bull. It's been a huge thing this year with this star and that executive accused of demoralizing behavior. It's something that should be rooted out and dealt with. But that's not my question for today.
What if you learned that the star of your favorite TV show was guilty of terrible harassment? Would you continue to watch the show? Would you still enjoy it? Or would you cut that personality out of your entertainment life?
There is no right or wrong answer here. Just food for thought.
