    Just because you’re the main character doesn’t mean we have to like you.

    Have you ever noticed that the most loathsome irritating characters in many TV series and movies are the main protagonists? What makes it hard for us to root for the main character. Better yet, do we feel obligated to like the main character?

    • I think looking into the new wave of flawed female leads that are becoming popular post-fleabag could be a really interesting way to look at a very relevant topic in contemporary tv. – mogiddy 4 months ago

    • There's been a lot written about likeability with female characters. Roxane Gay is probably the most famous: https://www.buzzfeed.com/roxanegay/not-here-to-make-friends-unlikable – ProfRichards 3 months ago

    • i think its really easy for protagonists to be one dimensional because eveything revolves around them, some people might think they don't need a personality because they're involved in all the action – lizawood 1 month ago

      The true purpose of the olympics

      Is the Olympic Games an athletic event, a cultural spectacle, or a tourism promotion? Describe how Olympic coverage caused certain trends to explode. (For example, Kpop’s ascent following the PyeongChang 2018 Olympic Games)

      • Useful perspectives include the history of the Olympics (why were they started and do those reasons hold true in modern Games), cultural impact (like the Doctor Who episode(s) featuring the Olympics and other depictions of the Games), and how Olympic athletes react to the spotlight (Simone Biles' mental health story, for example). – noahspud 8 months ago

      “The Columbine Episode”

      Are episodes about school shootings a good way to spark conversation, or are they just another plot device?
      An in-depth look at the political side (gun control, safety, laws, etc.) as well as the social side can be discussed ( bullying,media influences e.g: video games, mental illness,racism).

      Is the "shooting episode" going to have an impact on the characters for the rest of the series, or is it just one episode?

      • A data point to look into would be viewership/ratings of the aired episode and the ones following. There's a line drawn at which a show can have a little commentary on real life during its narrative versus when people shut off the TV during their break from reality. "Falcon and the Winter Soldier" experienced a severe dip in viewership for instance after that one episode featuring white policemen. – DancingKomodos 1 year ago
