Don’t you love it when you are watching your favorite television show, and your favorite character gets him or herself into a predicament that you just know they will wiggle themselves out of…and then they DIE?!

Oh, we’ve all been there. The RAGE that seeps through your pores, the visceral reaction to the fact that a character you have spent tens of hours becoming attached to has just been forever ripped away from your heart.

Is it fair? Is it right? Most importantly, is television getting carried away with it?
