    How TV shows change the perception of people's real life behaviour

    Analyze how TV shows can put people in a certain mindset which alters their real life behaviour. Are they just influencing and changing their perspective? or are they brainwashing as not every aspect of the situation is shown?

    • When thinking about reasons why people go to movies or why they are so engaged in television shows, it is either done to unwind and relax or to escape from one's own life. TV shows often take place in very realistic settings, where the probability of the events taking place in the show are likely to take place in the viewers own life. However, especially after binge watching a show for hours on end, it is easy to get caught up in the TV shows world and try to apply their problem solving skills to one's own problems. This almost impossible to do. To perform a monologue of one's undying love for another may work in the staged construct of the show, but in reality it is kind of creepy and very over the top. The situations on TV shows are being carefully calculated and balanced by the writers, and in real life people do not have set boundaries that they must act within. – Naomster7 8 years ago
    • I believe the TV shows give us unreasonable expectations for how relationships and behavior function. For example, How I Met Your Mother examines the relationship's between 5 friends in New York. Throughout the entire show I felt desperate to find similar relationships in my own life; but this is nearly impossible. Although fictional, the behavioral exchanges between characters seems realistic, but people do not behave like that in real life. Many of the characters have candid exchanges with new, and old, friends, but if the acted this way in real life, the responses would be quite different. For example, Ted's many romantic acts might warrant a restraining order in modern day society. People cannot be as carefree and friendly in real life as they are in shows, because our society does not support this type of behavior. – megduckworth 8 years ago
    • I would actually be more worried about the influence of reputed news organizations in affecting the behavior of individuals. There are many viewers who will only watch one network, and since "news," follows the title, these individuals believe this to be the absolute, undisputed truth and will not pursue different avenues of thought. This leads to biases and ideologies that are difficult to change. – danielle577 8 years ago
    • True. Look at right and left wing media. It does portray news in an unworthy way. – Munjeera 8 years ago

    I think that YouTube is a wonderful platform for individuals to express themselves and a place for them to be creative.

    One of the big things about YouTube is that it is unfiltered content unlike any other. There is no reviewers. It is all between you and your audience and it provides a great platform for people to find their niche. From beauty videos to highly produced motion pictures. Just how the user wants it.

    It is different from the other online video platforms like vimeo or dailymotion because this is where the “viral” trend started. It has become a household name, a staple. You want to watch cat videos? youtube. You want to watch travel vlogs? youtube. You want to learn how to curl your hair or do your makeup? youtube. You want to watch someone unbox a new technology and hear a review? Youtube.

    Unboxing videos and reviewing new technology has been a great source of information as well. It gives tech nerds their own little sense of belonging and it is helpful to the general public as they can quite literally see these users try the products out and decide if they want to buy it or not.

    Spectre’s soundtrack was the only thing good about it. Daniel Craig is obviously a legend as Bond but I agree with him turning down the 98 million dollar offer for the next Bond films. He, himself pointed out the many flaws in the character, such as being misogynistic so I think that evolving the character as the world is evolving into a more liberal, accepting place would be amazing.
    In addition, Idris Elba is not bad looking at all…..

    Why was Spectre a Disappointment?

    I don’t think TV is just going to die out, not anytime soon at least. Internet companies like Shaw have released apps like “Free Range TV” which gives the user the same ability as netflix (in terms of watching it wherever one feels like). The app also offers seasons of TV shows on demand.
    With this kind of advancement, I believe that it is easier for people to navigate as they can pick based on channels and choose TV shows. One of the biggest problems with Netflix is that a lot of the times it is a very limited selection of tv shows and movies. With apps with “free range TV” by Shaw, the internet company, people are able to get the benefits of having TV shows and movies at their fingertips, along with having a wide variety of shows which Netflix isn’t able to provide. (Even live streaming TV on your cell phone, iPad, etc.)

    It is a different game for torrenting and illegally streaming media though..
