So says Annalee Newitz:

"I loved Buffy [the Vampire Slayer] because realism is so fucking tiring. I don't want to see another gritty story about dashed hopes and ambiguous desires. I'm sick of watching the same mundane, attention-seeking 'real people' parading into humiliating games of superstardom, survival, and surveillance. There's enough reality in my life, thank you very much, and what I need most is a chance to stretch my imagination."

To put it another way, in words that fen have uttered since time immemorial: "Reality is for those who can't handle Science Fiction."
