I also do this with books, I remember when I was young watching a movie called Remo: Real American Hero or something like that, the guy in the title meets and is trained by some amazing martial artist who can dodge bullets at close range, drive his finger through solid panels of wood, all the physical feats you could think of.
Anyway in it the trainer guy watches a corny daytime soap opera religiously, you know a kind of "days of their lives" show like what Joey acted in in Friends, when it is mentioned he suggests that the TV show features all that is good, honour, family, sacrifice etc. and is pretty profound about it.
It made me think again about stuff like this, my question is can pulp fiction or "chewing gum" for the eyes really be profound? Or do you have to introduce it by subjectively thinking about it? Is it the show which can have that quality or is it just projection of the viewer which makes it so?
