Half an hour ago I was watching an episode of Numbers. One of the guys on the episode was a reputable professor of Native American History/archeology.. By the end of episode he lost his reputation, his lover was killed, his spouse left him, & hew as condemned for violating US federal law & accused of murdering his “girlfriend”.
Yet all that was all captured in like 5 min out of an hour long episode (I’m not sure how much time a “Numbers” episode span). That make me think how we take others misery the same way. We usually stare hour own shows were we don’t care a bit about others “2nd roles”..
