If you want to write fiction then you must be patient, for you need experiences, and those take time to accumulate. Unfortunately, television offers the illusion of experiences writers need to come by the hard way, in courtrooms, on ships, in hospitals, whatever.
I say go for truths, very personal ones, not likely to be learned from TV sets. We need to know what those are.
