Yes, I watched Passions, too. And the point is not that kids would be drawn in by rape, it's that they might be drawn in by the craziness. IDK how the story is going to play out, but people have compared it to JER's work and with good reason, at this point. You could summarize the Lady in the Cage as being about kidnapping and attempted murder and say that wouldn't be a draw for the younger people either, but it did hook people, because the story wasn't truly about the crimes. And to be clear, I'm not arguing that young people will be drawn in by this story, but I don't think the idea that they will is a farfetched belief, if it continues to have things in common with JER's work.
I think we sort of agree on some aspect that I can't quite pinpoint (lol). I think we'd agree completely if this story had an underlying story that was a little more clear to me. Right now, that doesn't appear to be the case, but who knows how it might be later on.
