DJRichard's insight:

Stand up comedian and 'truth seeker' Joe Rogan has a large collection of fan made videos using the words from his podcast. This one speaks for itself. I think everyone needs a little objective truth sometimes.

This article argues that network TV sitcoms have shown displays of feminism since the early 70s. From Gloria Bunker Stivic from ‘All in the Family,’ to Jesse Spano from ‘Saved By the Bell,’ and Phoebe from ‘Friends,’ TV sitcoms have featured feminists in varying lights. The article does point out that in the past, feminists have usually been the butt of the jokes. However, the author believes that it was not necessarily a negative thing because they were at least able to call attention to important feminist topics. Today’s sitcoms such as ‘Parks and Recreation,’ ‘New Girl,’ and ’30 Rock’ have introduced feminists that are no longer criticized for their views, thus introducing a new age of feminism.

I think feminism in TV sitcoms have progressed based on the characters and how they are portrayed. However, I think feminism can still grow, just like it was stated at the end of the article. There can be more feminism diversity in sitcoms. In order to show the progression of feminism, more female characters ranging in different races, ages etc., should be characterized as feminists.

I agree there is still work to be done as far as the way feminist characters are portrayed on television. I think it is just like the progression of any other minority that has been introduced to TV. Audiences tend to need time to get used to new ideals and I believe that as society becomes more accepting of feminism, so will television shows.

This article discusses how each episode of “Louie” has no relevance to any of the following episodes; “Louie is utterly indifferent to continuity.” The show works more as individual short-story’s, with none of the episodes truly interconnected. There is a freedom to follow whatever “train of thought” show creator Louis C.K. wishes to deal with on any given episode. The author of this article argues that this process is “reinventing the sitcom.” Do you agree? Do you think that the freedom “Louie” exemplifies is the future of television sitcoms?

I don't believe that every sitcom from now on is going to take its cues from Louie. There are still so many good sitcoms that come out and try new things, or stick with the old ones. I haven't really seen any other sitcoms like Louie that have really stuck around, or even existed. To me I feel like Louie doesn't have enough for a viewer to connect to, with the fact that there is only one character that stays the same. I think you need continuation of characters to hold an audience.

After watching "louis" in class, I decided to watch a few episodes, and there is no continuity. Other than the fact that he is a divorce father of two children, the episodes aren't interconnected. There characters aren't the same in any of the episodes. I think the concept of "Louie" is very interesting. I agree that they are short stories about Louie's life. I think "Louie" might be the future of the television sitcom, although the episodes aren't a continuation of each other and each episode is different, I think this concept is very interesting. The only scene that is consistent is when Louie does stand up comedy. "Louie' is a very new idea for a sitcom and unlike anything we have ever seen.
