Yes! I entirely agree with you Hig. There must be something radically wrong with the people who push this sort of thing as entertainment, and with those who attend as an audience. Smacks of the "knitting at the foot of the guillotine" mentality, but I suspect that there is something deep in the human psyche that enjoys this sort of spectacle. How else can one explain Roman amphitheatres, crowds at Smithfield, Tyburn, Tower Hill, and various other places of execution, and the people who would pay for a trip round Bedlam.
Doesn't float my boat, but I suspect I'm in the minority.
