So, you have a blurring of real in the imaginary. And, you have a blurring of imaginary in the real. At this point the gesture isn't even half-full. It is clear that this isn't the entertainment that you are looking for. And, you know what, if it isn't your cup of tea then it isn't. Not everything on television is meant for everyone. That is why we have ten million bazillion channels in the first place. You don't need an excuse to not watch a show that I happen to like.
Because, really, any excuse other than, "Its not for me," is just an empty gesture in and of itself. Isn't it?
