First off I agree, this is an awful premise for a TV show. Especially in these current times.
(PS: I'm stretching out here but bare with me, just curious if anyone else picks up on this perspective...)
However, is it just me, or does this seem to be a sly way for the rich to "prove" that they are entitled to their wealth and shouldn't give to the
What I mean is, in current times; I imagine in not too long from now, there will be some sort of call for the uber rich to disperse some of their
overly amassed wealth into the general population.
For instance, a sole person with billions stashed in the bank can surely not in a normal lifetime possibly spend that much money. (Unless a stupidly
egotistical lifestyle is pursued)
So in the knowledge that there are certain people in the world who have acquired wealth far beyond their needs; does it not stand to reason that the
ever increasingly aware population will begin to question why these so called Billionaires are not using the spare money, that they will never touch,
to help the poverished in our world?
To relate it back to the OP, if a TV show such as this can show that even the poor will resist giving to each other in order to better themselves,
does this not give some justice in a convoluted way that the rich are entitled to sit on their wealth and ignore the suffering?
... Forgive me if this is totally off the mark, I began to type and it turned into a half rant heheh. But humour me
