Disturbing themes add to enjoyment
I’m sick of viewers complaining about Shortland Street. Do people not understand that it’s not meant to be 100 per cent realistic. It wouldn’t be interesting otherwise. Yes, the themes are now disturbing and not to everyone’s liking but I believe that’s what makes Shortland Street so enjoyable. The character of Dylan is undoubtedly a murderer and, of course, it’s a bad situation – him not being incaracerated. But even in real life people like Dylan get away with murder. It’s more common than some people are willing to admit. As to some other letter writers, apologies if gay and bisexual couples are not welcome in today’s society. Try to have an open mind for goodness sake.
