Why Mandy Patinkin pulled plug on Criminal Minds
"It's (violent TV) a curiosity, I don't get it," he said.I know, I know, half my FList loves this show. There was this one point when suddenly it seemed everyone became obsessed. Did it just get better at some point? Because when I stopped watching, which was when Patinkin left, the torture porn and the misogyny pretty much exceeded my tolerance levels - and I watch SPN and L&O:SVU, which means my tolerance levels are actually pretty high.
"I'm very disturbed by the fact that at the end of a long day this is what people go home to watch to unwind. They watch horrible, mysogynistic, violent activity. It saddens me. There is so much else to do, so many other ideas to put into our consciousness. I'm very disturbed by it."
