I think the reason I enjoy fiction creations, be it a movie, tv-show, or anime - is because it breaks your expectations.
Of course, at this point, my expectations are high. Starting from childhood, when we consume fiction, we think to ourselves - "oh, that's smart, that's cool, what.", etc. It breaks the norms.
In retrospect, the best presentation and talks, are also those who break the norm, over-deliver - think of Steve Jobs product announcements.
The above thoughts brought you by "tales from the loop" tv show episode I just watched.
