I'm not really qualified to debate a tv show since I only saw a few minutes of it on Youtube - the Pine Barrens one - since that was the one they were talking about, and since I know the NJ Pine Barrens - but is this the result? - Someone asked my brother's little kid what he wants to be when he grows up, and he says he wants to be in the Mafia. Do they always romanticize criminals? Everyone knows about the famous bad guys of the old west, but nobody remembers the honest hard working people whose lives they destroyed, people they robbed and murdered. Likewise organized crime. I suppose it's part of the dichotomy of the human condition - a propensity to say fancy sounding things like how much they love peace and democracy and freedom and all that, but what they really love is killing people from some other country or tribe or family or anything at all will do.
