If not the most distasteful soap then what is the the most distasteful major aspect of a soap that comes to mind? In One Tree Hill there was a character named Dan Scott who rescued his son from being kidnapped and what was his son's reaction? Gratitude, right? No. He punched him in the face! Then Dan Scott saved the lives of that same grandson and the wife of his son. His son's reaction? He refused to even associate with his dad. What the hell? That's just sickening. This is a show that had what I can only surmise was a mentally disturbed show runner (Mark Schwahn, who was recently fired from his job at the network because of, multiple allegations of sexually harassing young women on the set of One Tree Hill). I knew he wasn't mentally all there when he showed what may well have been the most distasteful scene ever televised in a drama: There was a dying man who needed a heart transplant or he would soon die. We see the man sitting in the waiting room of a hospital while the heart which he will receive for the transplant is on its way. Inexplicably there is a dog in the waiting room. The paramedic who is delivering the heart trips while running through the waiting room and the heart falls out of the metal box it was in and onto the floor. The dog promptly runs over and gobbles it up. I'm not f***ing kidding. I could not make this up. Exactly who could that scene possibly have been designed to appeal to? Dan Scott's son, Nathan, must be pictured in the dictionary next to the definition of ungrateful. Oh, Dan Scott also saved Nathan's career as an NBA basketball player. Right after that Dan Scott went to visit his son. Nathan opened the door and when he saw his dad, he slammed the door in his face. Nathan, along with being the most ungrateful bastard I've ever seen in a TV show, soap or not, was not too bright. There was one time when he borrowed $10,000 from a loan shark with no plan as to how to pay it back. He never does pay it back so the loan shark tries to kill Nathan's wife by running into her with his car. Nathan runs down to the car after it crashes and pulls the loan shark out of the car. He commences beating the man. At some point Dan Scott arrives and notices the man is now dead. Nathan has beaten him to death. So, Dan says to his son, Nathan: Get out of here. You've got a wife and a young son to take care of. Dan punches the asphalt to bloody his hands just before the police show up. He confesses to beating the man to death and goes to prison to save his son from having to do that.
