Admittedly, I have also experienced this tension of late. Unlike writing a short story or even a book, in which there is one general subject/plot that slowly unfolds, we have the challenge of creating new adventures for our characters on a weely or bi-weekly basis. It's analogous to the TV episodes that, over time, start seeming more like recycled versions of older, much more original episodes.

Take Melrose Place, for example. It started off rather innocuous, but gradually the storylines became more and more ridiculous to the point that no murder plot or love triangle was beneath the scriptwriters to conjure. As audiences, I think we've become desensitized to the normal, real-life material in favor of the much more sensationalistic stuff.

Okay, I'm rambling now...I really need to stop eating these brownies...
