Television: My Drug of Choice

Should I care about the characters on the shows I watch? I feel sad for House on his eponymous show. I cringe at the singers on American Idol--and even sing along some times (maybe making it a little better). But, I also cheer a little inside when Simon is mean. He is a buddha.

I even get a little choked up watching the president on Battlestar Galactica when they dedicate a new ship in her honor.

But, for the characters of Will and Grace, I feel nothing. Except hatred. For Will. Two dimensional caricatures do not deserve my pity. Unlike Joan, formerly of Arcadia, whom I miss.
