This always really bugged me on these shows – the way a character can not just display a regular talent, they have to magically become the best person ever at it overnight. It’s just stupid.
Best / worst example is a show called What About Bob where someone decided they wanted to open a cupcake store. Within two freakin’ episodes the store was featured in magazines and there were crowds lining outside the door.
I want to watch people fail, damn it! Success makes me nervous.
