Hoses of the Holy in the Parallel Universe

When you (should) know you're being insulted

Simon's post below about the prince among men who was his teacher reminds me of something I wanted to say about Channel 4's nasty comedy drama Shameless.

My wife watches it; I don't like it. When the mot recent series started, the opening scene was of the main character pissing in a urinal. Gross enough, but they made it worse by offering a "urinal's eye" view of the event. So the opening scene was of someone figuratively pissing in the audience's face.

It's like a challenge from the Yeah-No people. How much can we insult the audience, how far can we go, and people will still watch this shit?
