Robin Kestrel - 2010-09-18 Obviously they are aware of the Milgram experiment and its many replications over the years; why the pretense that this is a new phenomenon caused by being on television?
Cena_mark - 2010-09-18 With Milgram the people delivering the shocks were doing it for science. In this experiment they're shocking people to win a game show. This is a good thing. It means we'll be able to watch the "Running Man" in a little over 10 years.
pastorofmuppets - 2010-09-18 Figures Cena would get excited about planes flying into buildings.
bongoprophet - 2010-09-18 you think he actually read the book and not just watched the movie?
Syd Midnight - 2010-09-18 Because it works using television. That's probably a good thing to take note of, that reality TV or media presence can push people to murder Milgram-style. I'm glad I'm less unaware of that now. Think of that when you troll Chris-chan.
Cena_mark - 2010-09-19 I don't know anybody who read the "Running Man." Sounds like a case of forgotten book, classic movie. I don't read Steven King.
Xenocide - 2010-09-18 "Games of suffering which are being developed in Germany."
I smell hijinks!
pastorofmuppets - 2010-09-18 IMO the slow ratcheting up of the "electricity" and actor's reaction means that Milgram-style experiments confirm people's desire for consistency more than obedience.
What's disturbing here is that these people didn't immediately think "hey, this looks a lot like those obedience experiments that guy did!"
RomancingTrain - 2010-09-18 I'm sure that Milgram is as well known as Kitty Genovese(which isn't a lot as evidenced by all the internet tough guys that spring up in stories of related crimes.)
