As a member of the public I always sort of liked him, all they way back to I Spy, but I was never a great fan. Always just thought of him as a good guy, not a monster.
I've worked with a lot of mentally ill people and in my experience, it isn't long before you realize how sick they are. Aside from his accusers, did anyone else think of him as sick?
If he did what he's accused of does this mean he's sick? Can monsters walk among us unperceived?
