New kink?

John Rogers, (aka Kung Fu Monkey) uses the phrase "competence porn" to describe people's reactions to the briefing scenes on his show "Leverage." People apparently enjoy watching characters who know what they're doing.

Got to admit there's nothing I enjoy so much in fiction as bad guys who know what the hell they're doing! Makes their inevitable doom all the more satisfying somehow.
