Reflection

3 Dec

When I first signed up for this class, I thought that we would touch on different TV shows and go into details about specifics of different shows. I did not really realize how much we would touch on the different theories and touch on all of the different subjects that we did. In the end, I am very glad that I took this class because I did learn a lot that I really had never even thought about before when watching TV. I have gain a lot of new perspective on many different of the different issues that we talked about especially race and gender. I never really took like time to look at how these two issues are shown on TV and now it is all that I can think about when I watch TV. Some of my favorite shows are lacking so much in incorporating different races and it is very obvious now. One of my all-time favorite TV shows was Friends and after we talked about it in class and read the article I know exactly what the author was talking about in “May the Circle Stay Unbroken”. Even though I do notice these things now we all still have our favorite shows and Friends is still one of mine.

I have learned a lot in this class from the lectures but I think I also learned a lot more by doing the Blogs. The Blogs have allowed me to further explore the different topics and relate shows that I do regularly watch. I think being able to freely write allows us to apply the topics that we have learned about in a way that we personally understand. Sometimes the mind just wanders when freely writing and personally I have hit on different things that I normally would never bring up in other classes. I think that this course has been very educational and has been very insightful. I would definitely recommend this class to others.
