@yanyo yeah, Iron Man, Iron Man 2, and Thor, were all launched earlier in some countries, i.e. It's happened for years, depending in the movie. Maybe you just don't "know of" movies, period.

 @amkosh  your friend, who has an actual profession, is very right to bitch about the effect series have in life. Haven't you heard of the "CSI effect"? It has affected actual trial outcomes and modified people's expectation of how forensic science should work: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/CSI_effecthttp://lsprg.asu.edu/archive/csieffect.pdfhttp://washtenawtrialcourt.org/general/administration/general/judge_profiles/DESresume/DESPubs/CSI%20article%20(published).pdf,

TV shows do, in fact, alter our perception of the world at least partially. Shows like House, Sex and the City, and CSI actually have real-life effects: they impact career choices, shopping lists, and our idea of how things work/should work.

No matter how scripted, a TV show publicized under the genre "reality show" can most definitely affect our perception or "real", be it fake or not. 

The self professed fiction works already do.
