Precisely why I didn't much like it. I hate the way the world is, and if a story strongly mirrors reality then I want nothing to do with it, I get enough of reality in real life. I watch shows and read books and play games to escape to a different world, not just more of the same.
That makes sense. In my opinion (I am not going to force it upon you, Borg style), if a series can capture the reality of the world that well while still using a fictional plot, it is very well made show. I guess I just appreciate the writers of the show understanding how the world really is.
