Like many, I occasionally enjoy some mindless entertainment. But there's a big difference between mindless and brain dead. It's hard to believe that ANY of these characters have survived to adulthood, let alone become professors, detectives, writers, and PhD candidates.
I should have turned it off when I realized who the murderer was the first time they showed up on camera. But no. I kept watching. And it just got worse.
But then, I have only myself to blame for that.
