King of queens
3. What role do you think television plays in the transmission of popular culture? How have TV shows affected pop culture in the United States and elsewhere?
1. How do television shows reflect the influence of globalization?
Provide examples from the clips that show the influence of cultural exchange of different cultures on U.S. society or the impact of U.S. society on other cultures?
Television shows reflect the way of life for American families because it sets an example that people want to follow. An example from "Leave it to beaver" that demonstrates the popular culture of it's time would be that the shows were in black and white and not color, which changes a lot. An example from "The Brady Bunch" that demonstrates the popular culture of that time would be their clothing. The guys would wear suits on an everyday basis and the girls hairs would be all teased. An example from the show "King of queens" that demonstrates the popular culture of that time would be that their way of talking is very different and they talk like they are just having a regular communication. An example from the show "Modern Family" that demonstrates the popular culture of that time would be the resolution of the show is way better and is clearly made with way better cameras, the people dress with things that you'd see on an everyday person and the houses they have are the type of house someone would consider the everyday american house.
Based on my analysis of the shows, I feel as if popular culture has changed over time by the clothes people have worn, the types of hair styles their were, the communication has become more relaxed. Something that has remained the same is that people still would be in an average style house. There has always been the same kind of idea that has just morphed differently as well.
I think the role that television plays in the transmission of popular culture is huge. Television shows show the idea of what they think an average family or person should be like, therefore when watching a show someone is going to want to become or do things that the show is presenting.
I think that television shows reflect the influence of globalization because it's giving people this idea that their lives need to be like that t.v show. An example from the clip of "Leave it to beaver" that showed how the influence of cultural exchange of different cultures had on the U.S society was in the intro to the show the mom and dad would come into their room and wake them up showing that that's what normal families are supposed to do. An example from the show "Modern Family" that provides an example of the way it has impacted U.S's culture would be that it is now more comedic but not in a very great way so some families can mimic this and it not be for the best.
