The consequences of these people making their relationships expendables means they are pushing away and sacrificing the people that love them the most in order to obtain something they think they want/need, but overall has very low importance to their lives.

Black women deal with challenges every day, whether it’s because of their race, gender, class, education, religious or sexual ties. When it comes to Black women we tend to view their issues as either race or gender related to the exclusion of other aspects of their identity and their intersectionality (Bryant-Davis 114). The show Insecure, an HBO comedy series created by Issa Rae, focuses on the sisterly bond between two young professional black women living in Los Angeles. The show demonstrates the challenges that black women face on a regular basis, whether it’s finding love, navigating a white dominated workplace, battling stereotypes or finding their identity. Although Insecure deals with many important sociological issues, the focus of this paper is the representation of Black women in the workplace, specifically in a white environment and the microaggressions they encounter in their attempt to succeed in their careers.
In today’s society there is a wide variety of TV dramas shown for entertainment purposes such as CSI, Grey’s Anatomy, Code Black, as well as NCIS. Unfortunately these shows have the capability to alter someone’s perspective and respect that they have for the people that have to cope with these situations in their everyday life. The show, CSI, directly correlates to the article by incorrectly portraying criminal profiling, which is the message that Gladwell wishes to knock. A similar situation occurs with Grey’s Anatomy as well as Code Black, which are both hospital dramas that incorrectly show life in the ER and busy hospitals, romanticizing the life that they live no matter how wrong the portrayal may be.
It’s all in the game. Though these words belong to the nefarious Omar Little of HBO’s critically acclaimed “The Wire” and not Plato, they nonetheless remain relevant. If anything, “the game” is akin to Plato’s allegory of the cave and the shadows that it casts. That being said, I will make the argument that anyone who doesn’t play by the rules of the game or tries to alter it, much like the prisoner who sees the light and goes back to aid his fellow prisoners, will be rejected. The only means of retaining a livelihood in the context of the Wire and its characters is to remain in the cave and entertain the idea of the shadows being reality for just as the prisoners in the cave are disillusioned by the shadows they perceive to be reality,

Buffy the Vampire Slayer hush is one of the unique episodes from the series because instead of having dialogue theres more musical cues.

One of my friends, Dylan, watched the show on the first week it aired on Netflix and has ever since been trying to persuade all his friends, including me, to watch it. Now at first, I was reluctant because I already had my hands full with school and had my eyes already glued to three other TV shows, them being Mad Men, Daredevil, and The Wire, so adding another to my to-watch list just didn’t make much sense. In addition, Mad Men and The Wire both had seven and five seasons respectively, was already a heavy
I agree that the lecture's representation of the differences between literature and popular writing is harsh. To me, literature deals with moral issues and life's dilemma, and this is shown through the popular movie the Titanic. Although on the surface it may seem like a piece of popular writing, but it shows characteristics of literature as well. The Titanic has an original plot, realistic characters, and like most pieces of literature, does not have a happy ending.

No great success was ever achieved without failure; the Emmy and Golden Globe award winning television series, Breaking Bad, is a perfect example. In an interview with creator Vince Gilligan, he states how his greatest fear during pre production was failure. During the show’s production, there was input from DEA agents to community members. The post production process is what really ties the final product of this television series and brings the creative process to life. Moreover, like most ideas, the creative process shifts when collaborating with different individuals.
Excellent television programming can leave a lasting impression with audiences. Particularly if the show embodies relatable themes that viewers are confronting in their lives. Such was the case for the hit television series Breaking Bad.
