Thought Provoking Television Shows

The show also makes someone think about the controversial/ ethical decisions, such as cheating to get a patient at the top of the organ transplant list by cutting his LVAD wire so his condition would worsen. Another show that is thought provoking is Mythbusters. The show makes someone think about how/ why something is happening. Plus, a lot of people are curious and have the same question about certain myths. A show that is definitely thought provoking is Brain Games.

The characters in past shows had the stereotypes of the Jezebel, Sapphire, Sambo and Uncle Tom and in today's shows they still portray these stereotypes…

Rather that be; the dumb brother or the goofy dad, it’s always easy to take a shot at them. However there is an issue when it comes to race in these television sitcoms we see today.

Unfortunately, this depicted the African-American involuntary “immigration” experience as one that was terrible yet palatable, tying it up nicely…
