America In Primetime
Okay, you all I know I love my stories. I love my tv shows. Well, if you get a chance try to rent, or go to the library or catch America In Primetime. PBS made a great mini series doc with tons of interviews with so many writers and actors of the best tv shows out there. The four episodes are centered on archetypes of tv characters which include, The Independent Woman, The Man of the House, The Misfit and The Crusader.
All of the tv shows we watch today are referencing or built or rejecting upon the shows in the past and the series does a great job of juxtaposing and looking back at tv characters with contemporary tv.
The interviews showcase inspirations and connections between such shows like The Avengers and The X Files...
