Have you heard of the PBS series, America in Primetime? It's a documentary type exploration into the history of television and how it has moved and shaped us over the years. I thought it was so interesting and I loved how they went into great detail of how characters are formed and how they can be relateable (or not). And, how time has changed how we see characters--and television in general. I always subconsciously viewed television as a medium that wasn't as good or as credible as movies. But this really turned that around for me and showed me that television can offer much more--like more character development and more opportunity to get to know the story over a longer period of time.
