The 2000s were generally the rise of the superstar era. By the superstar era, I mean the era preceding our current Geek culture era, the era where shows involving the lives of actors and musicians like Jonas, Hannah Montana, Sonny With a Chance, and Camp Rock among others ruled the television? Have these had any positive effect on the generation of the 2000s? What were the upsides and downsides to this era of television run by Disney? Is it a good thing that it ended?
I think this is a really broad topic but it is certainly interesting to think about. When I first read it through I was thinking of audience reactions but I think this could also be parlayed into thinking about the effect it had on the stars of those shows as well. This is pretty multifaceted and worth looking into – DClarke7 years ago
Oh, yes, especially when you look at the Jonas Brothers who split up and Miley Cyrus who started making headlines for the weirdest reasons and I think I remember something about Demi Lovato. – SpectreWriter7 years ago
It's generally very difficult to make large, sweeping, qualitative arguments like "any positive effect" or "good and bad." I think a good start might be a series of interviews or discussions with young adults who watched a lot of the shows that you're interested in (this maybe a point where you could narrow your scope). How did/does it affect their lives? Personally, the shows I grew up watching as a child haven't had much of an impact on my current life. Find some cool qualitative evidence. – rollerz7 years ago
