Sex on TV (and economic collapse)

A few random thoughts for your consideration.

1) Why is it that all new shows based in the past or in a fantasy world are required to show ridiculous amounts of nudity and sex? There are three running at the moment that I've seen at least the pilot of (Borgias, Camelot, and Game of Thrones), and in each case the plot just seemed to be a way of moving from one sex scene to the next. Personally, I blame Rome. That was the first one I noticed that just threw you in with the naked action. I wonder if there's a critical number of breasts per square meter of film after which they have to give in and say "You know what? This is porn."

2) Related to the above: Borgias drags on too much and Camelot is frustrating. Game of Thrones may make it as a decent series if the characters can keep it in their pants for more than one scene.

3) Greggs chicken bakes are still awesome.

4) We might still be doomed.
