The media has always had an impact on human life. The movie the kite runner inspired social work in Afghanistan. The oscar winning movie slum-dog millionaire had an impact on the slum dwellers of India. Every story has a moral behind it. Just like when we were young and every fairytale had a message. As we have grown up we longer watch fairy tale cartoons but the message that goes into the most popular tv shows is stil somewhat similar to what we have heard in fairytales.
“When you truly love someone you must let them go, if they return they are forever yours”. Rachel and Ross are a classical example of this famous quote. They have always had an off and on relationship. Even though Ross agrees to let Rachel go in the last episode She returns and does not go to Paris. It is revealed in Joey’s spin off show Joey that they get married later on.
Although the show does make it clear that the theme is not about popular and beautiful people(actually it seems to place them as outcasts at some moments). The main message given to everyone is that diversity is the one thing everyone has in common and everyone can shine and reach their true potential if they accept themselves for who they are. It’s better to be a bad original of yourself than a great copy of someone else.
Scrubs is a medical humor that focuses on the struggles of doctors in the making. However the facade focuses on the humorous aspects of a hospital. The patients and doctors have to make difficult decisions. What the main message of the show is that anything work having in life doesn’t come easy . As quoted by the infamous Dr.Bob Kelso.
