    I am a new HONY fan thanks to some friends of mine showing me the Facebook and Instagram accounts. I have to say, the pictures and the stories that go up everyday are quite inspiring. There are many that make me sad, many that give me joy, some that I can relate to, and others that I empathize for. I enjoy the rawness and truth to the photos, the people, and the stories.

    I really enjoyed your article and ironically enough I was just watching The Help last night on television and couldn’t help but think that it was perpetuating stereotypes so I appreciate your article for completing my thought process!

    Shiss, thank you for your response, but I argue that you are misinterpreting what I wrote. I am not arguing that the television shows from the 1950s are linked to violence against women today. I am actually arguing, with the help of recent scholarship and recent studies that have been done, that the television shows of the 1950s may have contributed to violent behaviors in the men of the 1950s. I am also not considering any sort of comparison between television shows from the 1950s and television shows from today, that is far beyond the scope of this paper. My paper is considering possible linkages between violent behavior and these television shows. It is perfectly sound methodology to use new frames and scholarship to address historical issues/events. The recency of the evidence that I use does not dismiss its importance or its validity. I respectfully ask you to reread the arguments I have written and keep in mind that this is not at all a contemporary analysis of violence against women.

    Sorry, I meant to post this directly to you!

    That is a GREAT point/question and although I haven’t done too much research on that I would argue that the new “enemy” in films is the Middle East. I am thinking of pretty much all military movies that have recently come out and been big in theaters that are located in the Middle East, making them look easily dominated and perpetuating the stereotypes. That is just my opinion and I realize it probably sounds cynical but I truly think that films depict the current enemy and right now that is terrorists from the Middle East.

    When originally writing this paper I had used a few more movies as support and the Grey Zone was one of them. I completely agree with you about the ending! There are so many films about the Holocaust it was difficult to narrow down my analysis.

    I think your article is very interesting and you explore some very fascinating human behaviors/tendencies. Being a huge fan of mysteries and detective novels (as well as tv shows), I have to say that I like understanding the detective process as well as the criminal process. It is quite dark to admit that, right? But that is what keeps readers hooked!

    I really love this article because it tackles the complexities of the characters in Breaking Bad. It is not an easy task to transform characters and the audience’s perception of them, but this show mastered that. I never saw the final season but I was already convinced of the demoralization of Walter White during the seasons before that. Good job writing about a very complex topic!
