I am over three quarters of the way through season two. I do not know if I will watch the entire season. I like the characters, and the basic plot is interesting. The problem is that I am getting disgusted with parts of the conflict and it is making me anxious. Violence in television, movies, and books gives me a sick feeling. When I watch something violent, I feel depressed. It is like I know the people personally. I actually said to myself while I was watching the episode, "they are only acting." I did the same thing with ROME and VIKINGS. I read an article about introversion. Many introverts are highly sensitive and tend to dwell on the negative. That is me. I am so much happier on days when I do not watch television. It drains my brain.

I have not watched the tv show. It looks like I am going to like it. I will check it out. I started watching teen wolf - and it is fine for me. I like it.

I just finished Seasons 4 and 5 this week. I understand about the violence, but it really is a good series. I am not an introvert, but I am a highly sensitive person. I cried on the season finale.

It seems as though you should stick to comedies and avoid dramas and action movies.

I have not watched this show. Television is full of violence and sex. It is amazing at what prime time offers these days.
