Infancy And Childhood Reflection

1.) The shows I chose to watch are shows that children usually don't grow out of or are
attracted to at a younger and older age.

The Simpsons, a classic comedy which draws the majority of us in with its realistic family
and practical witt. The family goes through hardship,excitement, triumph and everyday
experience that most families go through. 'Homer' the father of the family is employed by
the power plant and is in constant battles to keep his job. 'Marge' the wife of the family
is edgy or easily becomes paranoid, her main job is to be a stay at home mom, however she
often goes out and tries to become more distinguished in society by working outside the
home. She tries several times to get a job but often realizes she can't part with her
family for those few hours a day. She is the basic prototype of every average American
mother. 'Bart' the families son is a brat, of course being the boy of the family they make
him out to be the trouble maker mainly because most families direct evidence of mischief
to the boy because they are more curiouse or perhaps more unaware of the consequences
which come along with right and wrong actions but they may also simply not care. Bart
vandalizes things, humiliates several members of the schools faculty, steals items from
stores and dis-respects his parents. All this seems quit bad for a children show but Barts
softer side does come around once in awhile, for every wrong thing he does it later shows
his guilt and the punishments that come along with misbehaving. 'Lisa' the families most

After a period of initial success, perhaps lasting three or four years, the writing on the show becomes stale by using the same format and same jokes over and over. The viewing audience becomes bored, and eventually, the show fades into television oblivion. Or, as Jeff MacGr

    Teenage Humor Teenage humour is unlike adult humour. Teenagers laugh at "Toilet" humour while adults laugh at "Civilized" humour. Therefore considering that teenagers laugh at the opposite of what adults do, we need to define the reasons why teenage and adult humour is so different.
