I’ve been telling you:
Once you put ANYTHING between proscenium arches, you glamorize and therefore legitimize it in the minds of — no, not everyone — but many viewers.
All that showrunner “We’re trying to show the CRIME is EVIL and WRONG” shit is just an excuse to have fun and make money and win prizes and still be able to sleep at night (although maybe with a bit of over-the-counter help…)
Also? I will never stop saying this:
TEACHERS HAVE PLATINUM CATASTROPHIC HEALTH INSURANCE!!!!!

Being surrounded by conformist “XYZ is totally brilliant!!!” idiots is SO exhausting.
It’s like one giant Prime Directive Violation that everyone is simultaneously pretending not to notice or is too stupid to see.
