I think that's just the novelty factor in media. Media has to keep making things more and more novel. Look at cooking shows: You can't make a cooking show that's about stuff like grilled cheese and spaghetti and meatballs. No, you gotta find the most exotic ingredients and the most extreme preparation and decoration and upsell the shit out of that. Because if they want to see basic stuff they'd be watching reruns of 1980s Julia Child.
