Did You Know?

Personal Quote:

[on his television series Cops (1989)] People that say it's a guilty pleasure drive me crazy. Is that because they're experiencing schadenfreude? Or is it because they feel guilty because they see that there are things in society that are perhaps not right, that need attention, that need fixing?
