Cheers to you for that. Wish more people felt that way when it comes to Death Note.. practically, the fans of the show themselves.. it's much more enjoyable when you accept it's campiness.. too many fans love because it's "SOO HOT TOPIC!"
I've watched some episodes with my dad (in b4 power levels, etc.) and I didn't introduce the show to him being all like "ZOE MY FUCKING GOD SO EPIC THIS IS DEEP MAN" just said something along the lines of, "Let's watch this.. it's a pretty fun & entertaining show.. it tends to be campy from time to time but not in the bad way.."
And you know what? He's enjoyed it so far.. we both laughed at the potato chip eating scene and overall he's found it quite entertaining. See this whole thing NEVER would have happened if I introduced it as being "SO DEEP & PHILOSOPHICAL" I introduced it as "Campy but fun" and I'm pretty sure it went above his expectations.
