I wish that more MC's would get killed off. I hate nothing more than to watch a TV show where the MC gets jammed in a corner and you know that since their the MC nothing drastic will happen to them and then that leads to the MC getting out of the 'impossible' by some usually unrealistic means, like their partner showing up just in the nick of time. My favorite: I've seen this sooooo may times. The bad guy just doesn't hesitate at all to kill people off all throughout the show. No emotions at all. Until of course he gets the MC jammed up in a corner and then all of sudden is very slow to kill that person off. Grrr! Which then of course gives the MC's partner to show up up and blow the baddie away. Oy! My take is don't get your MC in such a jam unless you are willing to kill them off! Agree/Disagree and why? I'm a very new writer, less than six months and I'm always defining what I want to write. I want to write something simple, realistic and I only want to throw just enough conflict at the MC so that the solution is realistic and not by some highly unlikely chance.
