The program we chose was Arrested Development, a FOX series.
We chose this program because, it tests every concept we’re analysing, including several we have observed on our own, in a satirical way that is easily observable through many points of view.
‘A threesome of males’ dividing the work three ways, together in unison.
We organize ourselves by holding a meeting at least once a week outside of class time. Numbers and contact information have been exchanged.
We’ve watched the show together, all have seen the whole series at least once, and enjoy sharing our observations and notes.
By the time we need to, we will be caught up on the reading material.
We intend on covering A) sexual orientation and gender
-roles (pleasure, personal, public and social)
B) Class and power
-image (self, me and I)
C) Race and ethics
-downloading false definitions to children
-scare tactics, teaching lessons
D) ‘Family comes first’
Although it covers some irregular and less often discussed topics such as incest, we know we are adults capable of having discussions of mature subject matter, and will be iterated it in an appropriate way.
Our plan is to have a few paragraphs written and shared notes in a rough draft of what we will be covering in more detail. We hope the TA could shed some light on our requirements for the project and what should the finished product look like. We are confident because we have a working group already together.
