Computer hacking is something that is completely at odds with narrative and visual storytelling seeing as how it really is nothing more than a single person, usually, sitting at a regular computer typing commands into a graphically unimpressive interface until they reach their, usually, pretty mundane goal of fucking with some website. With few exceptions, TV and movies refuse to illustrate "hacking" as anything less than a high octane, full body race-against-the-clock perpetrated by some cyberpunk Cool Guy that speaks in Computer-ese. Of course REAL hacking isn't so entertaining but why do writers need to go so SO far in the opposite direction instead of finding a creative way to showcase the ACTUAL intricacies of an act that is becoming a big part of our digital world?
Laziness. The answer is laziness.
