Why is this argument being repeated over and over like it's relevant to the discussion?
Not only that but it's an excellent point to make. Do the dozens of crappy Steven Segal movies invalidate the entire medium? Of course not, because that would be a ridiculous statement.
There's certainly a lot of growing up to do before that happens though. I don't think anyone would deny that.
