why we have so many shows about cops and doctors? I mean, a paranoid part of me wonders if there's some sort of purpose in showing the cops to be the good guys, and the criminal justice system to be infallible. I mean, CSI? Come on. Just when it's starting to be proven that a lot of innocent people are in fact in prison. We have a show talking about evidence collection as a means to obtain "the truth." Law and Order? Again, an ode to the criminal justice and prosecution process as an effective and ethical way to obtain justice.
As for the doctor shows, I don't watch enough of them to really say. Perhaps some of you do though? There's got to be something to them.
