Somewhere in my Youth or Childhood, I was Badly Misunderstood

I just had to stop watching the last Sherlock, after it became clear that it was going down the road of...

... his being accused of a crime he did not commit. It's a type of plot I just can't enjoy. I'm moderately good at handling violence, and conflict is fine, but I find increasingly that extended misunderstandings, and false accusations above all, are horribly stressful. This is especially true if they never get resolved - which is one reason why I'd rather watch The Winter's Tale than Othello.

No doubt it reflects some childhood trauma, but am I alone in this reaction?
