What I Learned About Writing from Watching TV aka Justifying my TV Habit.
T I have to go for The Big Bang Theory.
Sheldon is the main reason I have chosen The Big Bang Theory for T. Which might really be a B. But anyway. Sheldon isn’t always likeable. Or even realistic (again, sitcom pushes things to the edge). He’s a good example of a character taken to an extreme. He’s intelligent and arrogant with it. He’s snotty about people who aren’t intelligent. He makes us laugh because of how he is.
He makes me think about what different sorts of characters I could put in my writing. Could I feature a Sheldon? What would he do? What situations would I put him in?
Could have gone for: The Good Wife. Taken. That 70s Show. Torchwood.
