TV as a drug — as per Terence McKenna — that finds value in how we relate to it.
I noticed that "Schitt's Creek," a show many I love love, offers a common formula: a family that's not like the others is funny but they learn to be like everybody else. I find this disappointing.
And makes me miss "The Addams Family" — an outsider family that's privileged over and against the square world.
"Don't Trust the Bitch in Apartment 23" is a modern Addams Family in which outsider ethics are privileged over and against Mid Western banal morality. This only lasted for the brief first season but it was something.
