Santa Monica College This Is Us vs Shameless Discussion

I’m working on a writing question and need an explanation and answer to help me learn.

tv shows I would analyze “Vampire diaries” and for an older series of vampire from 1997 I would go with”Buffy the Vampire Slayer”.

Choose from option A, B, or C on the essay prompt and discuss what you are thinking of writing. What films or TV shows? What do you think is interesting about them in the context of the option you chose? Think of it as a free-write exercise; it is not necessarily your thesis yet (but, hopefully, it will turn into that). 250-300 word minimum.

Choose ONE of the following:

A) Using Gabler’s essay as a framework, discuss a television series that is a “wish fulfillment” and contrast it with one that is, in your opinion, more “realistic” (For example, This is Us vs. Shameless; Jane the Virgin vs. Vida; On My Block vs. Gentified; Squid Game vs. Downton Abbey). What insights about cultural mythology can you draw from these differences? Use general summaries of the shows, specific examples of scenes and/or episodes and dialogue, and quotes/paraphrase from at least three outside sources (could be essays from our book or credible online sources like Vox, The Atlantic, The New York Times–particularly articles by A.O. Scott) to support and illustrate.

B) Using the stages of the hero’s journey (monomyth), compare two films from different eras or different cultures. Analyze the connection of each film to its own time or place. In what ways do the films diverge from the hero myth? In what ways do the films show similar and/or different cultural mythologies through the monomyth? What conclusions about culture and cultural changes can you draw from their similarities or differences? Use general summaries of the films, specific examples of scenes and dialogue, and quotes/paraphrase from at least three outside sources (could be essays from our book or credible online sources like Vox, The Atlantic, The New York Times–particularly articles by A.O. Scott) to support and illustrate.

C) Pick a genre of film (sci-fi, horror, teen comedy, western, rom-com, superhero, animated, etc.) and analyze at least one film from our current era (something in the last 5 years) and one film from at least one previous era (something from the 1950s-2010). Discuss their similarities (how they fit the conventions of their genre) and then discuss how their differences reflect the cultural mythologies of the eras in which they were produced. This should be the main point you are making in the essay. For instance, if you are analyzing superhero films, you might notice that in the early 80s all superheros were white males, while superheros now are more diverse. Maybe you’ll see that the 80s films’ plots were about stopping villains from taking over Earth, while today’s villains are destroying Earth. Perhaps that reflects the collective fears of corporate takeover of the 80s vs the collective fear of climate change today.Use general summaries of the films, specific examples of scenes and dialogue, and quotes/paraphrase from at least three outside sources (could be essays from our book or credible online sources like Vox, The Atlantic, The New York Times–particularly articles by A.O. Scott) to support and illustrate. (Note: You could also do this with TV shows).
