bad TV is bad TV
Bad art of any kind is in the eye of the beholder. And to complicate things, some of us deliberately follow "bad" art (stuff that offends our personal or aesthetic values) for various reasons, e.g. learning what not to do or gathering fodder to help you deride something as a formal critic or to have play fights with friends. Perfectly reasonable people can also get sucked into shows for crass reasons like finding an actor hot or loving the clothes or special effects.
I can understand US rah-rah stuff getting under someone's skin, but the show seems like it might be complicated enough to mean that is not front and center most of the time. If I end up sucked in, it will probably be by whatever they do by way of maintaining a semblance of civil society. I don't want any spoilers, but for now I'm curious about things like what will happen to money and what they might do with "one of them" who commits a serious crime like murder or rape.
