Why I don’t watch Succession (and a bunch of other TV)

I feel this way about a ton of TV, including things most people wouldn’t expect. Shows that are particularly dour, stressful, or even socially awkward all make me anxious enough that I can’t really watch let alone enjoy them.

"People ask me why I don’t watch succession and the answer is: I have met all of the families who that story is based off of, and worked for most of them, and as a result would never choose to recreationally consume thinly-veiled narratives about them as entertainment."
