When it comes to television, I have two different moods: I either want to watch a light comedy that will make me laugh until my stomach hurts, or I want to watch a drama that will make me sob into my bowl of Ben & Jerry’s.
There are many different genres out there, but those are the two most popular ones. There are lots of shows that seamlessly mend comedy and drama, and then there are shows that are always funny and silly. When it comes to those shows, it’s always surprising and jarring when there is an episode that deals with some really sad issues. It’s kind of like, “Whoa, what am I watching and where did these feelings come from?”
