Popular Politically Incorrect Shows
There seems to be a trend now where politically incorrect television shows are not only being accepted by major television stations, but they are very successful and popular with high viewer ratings.

What are some shows you know of that are not PC and in what way are they not?

Dexter - Extremely popular series about a serial killer. The show was initially criticized by some protesters who though it inappropriate to have a show where viewers empathise with a serial killer. Needless to say, their protests failed and the show is going to air for it's 6th season this year.

Breaking Bad - is about a middle class man who has lung cancer and being a scientists (who now works at a high school), he decides to start cooking meth in order to save money for his family for after his death and to pay for expensive chemotherapy bills. Again, another show where viewers empathize with someone that's breaking the law. This show is currently airing it's 5th and final season.

Given all the hard laws against drugs, it's very strange that this show even exists.

I don't know about Breaking bad because I haven't seen it, but...

Dexter generally kills only bad people who escaped the legal system. He has about 2-4 innocents killed because of either a mistake or self-defense, but it is not like he actively sought to kill them. Overall, Dexter is a good guy with what is being described as a mental condition. The fact that he is mental .

An anti-PC show would be one where things like racism or race realism would be shown as a good thing or at least represented for what they are. Or show multiple faces of said movements. I remember Dexter actually killing a white supremacist. An anti-PC show would be one where people would challenge actual words and discuss how fucked up things have become. An anti-PC show would be one where the discussion about WW2 would not just be about the Holocaust and how evil the nazis were, with all the stereotypical bullshit, but which would present the more complex reality and dynamic of the situation at that time, and how life really was.
