(This is a guest post from my personal blog – www.saintdepraved.com. I usually try to keep them separate but this post seems to fit both. The series this led to will only show up at Saint Depraved.)
Why do we love TV’s most deeply flawed characters?
Fast Company and the study it referenced summarized it this way:
When we sympathize with a character’s motivations for committing a heinous act, we’re likely to excuse that character’s actions.
I would add this.
We like these characters because like these characters we too are deeply flawed.
These characters are like us.
