Dr Stokes told the ABC this week, "There are probably better things to do with your time, but I think it's mostly fairly harmless, to be honest."
He added, "Any entertainment you engage with has a moral dimension. [For example] do you want to support the people involved?"
So yelling at the TV and poking our noses into other peoples' business is a good thing. We'll take it!
Doctor Stokes reassured us, "everyone needs entertainment and there is something positive about sitting down and watching something really mindless."
