Level 86 Television

Posted on 2011.09.29 at 20:00
Level-based RPGs (yes, non-level-based RPGs exist) go something like this:
  • You just killed the band of marauding Orcs and their leader that (burned your village and slew your parents). Level up! Now how to celebrate?
  • Kill the entire tribe of maruading Orcs! Level up!
  • Kill the evil Wizard that controlled the tribe of marauding Orcs. Level up!
  • Kill. Level up!
  • Mass genocide. Level up!
  • ...
  • Have tea with the evil diety started all of this before slaying him or her, thus becoming a diety yourself.
Over the top television is the same way; the show has to out-do itself every time it does something out-rageous.
  • Doctors drive their cars through people's Houses.
  • Doctors swap placebos for drugs in a medical trials for the sake of Greying old friends and still keep their jobs when discovered.
Television has turned into a Level 86 monster that skips rope over shark pools for fun. Time to kill it.
