TV Watching is Serious Business

penny-video

Come May I will have earned a B.A. in Mass Communications, or, as one of my professors called it, “a degree in advanced T.V. watching.” This degree includes a second emphasis in journalism. Basically, in a month’s time, I’ll be really qualified to blog about T.V.

 

Not that this is a bad thing (unless, you know, I want a job or anything) because I love writing and talking about T.V.! In that spirit, I’m going to share a lovely paper I found as I researched my own senior thesis, entitled When Becky Met Chuck: How the Breakdown of the Fourth Wall is Affecting Online FandomNote: this is not my paper, though I did consider this exact topic :)

I just have to mention that I love Becky Rosen as a character and think there is a severe lack of fic about her.  I enjoy fangirl culture (I'd argue it is unique and beautiful) so seeing it represented on screen, albeit in a comic, yet still affectionate way, makes me happy.


And just for giggles:

I find the comment about your professor to be very funny considering my Mass Communication prof. also said the same thing to our class. =]

So, apparently my prof. isn't as clever as I thought *sigh* Oh well. ;-)
