TV Critics Still Talking Consanguinamory and Faux-Consanguinamory

Noting the series with recent family-love plotlines, Jamie Peck asks, “What’s With All The Incest On Television This Season?”

Are TV writers simply running out of plot ideas? Are they resorting to incest to try to shock an increasingly un-shockable viewership? Or does the incest serve a justifiable purpose on some of these shows?

Consanguinamory (consensual incest) is part of life. It isn’t a small percentage of the television audience that has been or is currently involved, and they can relate. It would be good to get some distinctly positive portrayals, however.

Tim Molloy of Reuters reports that the storyline on “Dexter” has been under consideration for a long time.

The show's Scott Buck said…

"It's funny to me that people could happily accept Dexter as a serial killer, but once Deborah has love for her brother, that that's where the 'ick' factor for them comes in."
