Why do I feel like I’m living in a satire?

Even the names sound made up. Like bad guy banker “Bob Diamond“. That would get changed in the first edit of most TV drama scripts. And his head of investment banking, Rich Ricci. You’re not fooling anyone with that Italianisation. We all grew up watching Richie Rich.

And investment bankers colluding to rig published market information just to make them personally millions of pounds, while spraying around homoerotic banter with the Bollinger. It’s not credible. Audiences won’t believe it. Back to the drawing board for that plotline.

And then… and then! The bad guy just resigns! Without even a bare knuckle fight with the hero.  Come on, reality! You can do better than this!
