    Continued Curiosity into the Supernatural and Unknown

    Since before "The X-Files," was cancelled, there has been a steady rise and vested interest in TV programming focused on the supernatural and unknown. From the CW’s popular line up that included "Buffy the Vampire Slayer," "Charmed," and the Buffy spin-off "Angel," to more recent shows like SyFy’s "Being Human" and AMC’s "The Walking Dead" and "Preacher," television has been pulling away from more common sci-fi programming that once focused and explored future and other realms. Why is there more attracting to exploring the unreal in the real world?

    • I think this is a really interesting topic to explore. One angle to delve into may be that people portray extreme shades of ourselves with supernatural beings, and we've moved more and more into this area because the mystique is not only enrapturing, but it's also a way to reflect upon human nature by exploring these characters and worlds. – gabyelan 8 years ago
    • Were I to write this piece, I think it would be useful to delineate different sub-categories within the genre (such as those more fantastic and those more rooted in reality), and discuss how the treatment of the supernatural differs across those categories. – Allie Dawson 8 years ago

    You bring many insightful ideas to this analysis. “The Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind,” is a great film, and it can be challenging to explore and examine in depth. Though there were times that I found the over summarization of the film irksome, in giving it a second read, I can definitely comprehend why it was necessary. Thank you for conveying your ideas.

    You listed some great works here. I appreciate you listing Bone. As a former middle school teacher, I found this graphic novel as a great tool for engaging students in the reading process. Though personally, I would have chosen “Y-The Last Man” over “Runaways,” as part of my top 5, listing Brian K. Vaughan work period, is without a doubt a wise choice. His style of writing, especially dialogue is gripping. Good analysis of these works!

    Very engaging and insightful article. I have taught visual rhetoric in my courses and Sally Mann’s work has ignited many conversations on Western society’s sexualization of the human body. I found your arguments on the sexualization of children’s bodies informative. Thank you for this article.
