I tirade things that the obsession and fandom of which gets to me a little too much. So, just to clarify:
Yes, I have a life. A very full one, actually. I'm a co-book writer, a mother, a caretaker of my mother, my own artist, agent, and half way my own manager, among other things.
Yes, I watch other things. I like all of the Law & Order's except for CI, The Big Bang Theory, several anime, American Horror Story, and movies like The Fault in Our Stars and Lovely Bones.
I simply evaluate everything I watch. Everything. I find it fun and interesting to pick apart what they would have been thinking at the time, and I find it beneficial to my career, as it helps me understand how other writers thing, and how they follow their characters.
I relate what I watch to reality, and how it would fit there, and grade it on how well it can do so; like many
people do. It's only that I have the luck of being able to apply real live science to it, like psychology and how the mind works, where as not everyone can do that, and normally only have their opinions to work off of. It's a gift and a curse because I argue with people facts, and they often try to shoot them down with opinions, which irritated the less mature part of my mind into an argument, or makes me simply give up and offer 'live and let live'; which is generally unsatisfying. But it's not easy to change someone's mind when they WANT to believe what's already made a nest in their mind.
I'm sorry is this sounds arrogant. Most people who state facts they know come across as such. Albert Einstien, for example, is literally one of the only
scientists to come across as arrogant (mostly just because he was very aloof and laid back, and, in his words, 'If people want to live in arrogance, let them.' I'm not as wise as he, and constantly try to correct ignorance where I find it. And, for those of you who don't know, ignorant is not an insult. Stupid is an insult. Ignorant simply means you don't know something.
