Default is it just me ?

There's a new blog entry added:

is it just me ?

i am appalled about the show person of interest . the idea that someone is constantly monitoring all emails, cell phone calls, and phone calls to "prevent " crimes. excuse me , but we stilll have freedoms in america . maybe some people are willing to let go of all personal rights and privacy, but i am not. by using this, he is the bad guy. sorry, don't pull that but he does it in the best interest of society crap. what kind of society would tolerate no privacy ? are we going to have camera's follow us into bathroom and our beds ? should we leave the doors opens so police can randomly search homes? my god, we are becoming a society of cows. where is the outrage ? big brother is us.

ben, does it have a hemi ?

To my mind its a TV show and TV shows often do things that wouldn't happen in real life.

But to be honest, catching the last few minutes of the show (was settling in to watch The Mentalist), I'd say even the main characters know they're the bad guys and that their plan isn't going to end well for either of them. Even without the invasion of privacy issue, Caveziel's character seems to be breaking several laws (including killing people) to arrange the things that need to happen to protect the "innocent" parties.

It's just a show, it's okay to be outraged at the characters as I'm sure the actors would be happy to hear they stirred an emotion in their audience. But to be outraged at a fictional show? I don't know, just never happened to me. I've disliked shows because of poor acting or writing but never just for its premise.
