Cult Shows and Nostalgia
Posted by ardrey821 on March 5, 2013
After viewing many cult shows over the past years, i’ve come to the realization that I hate many cult shows that are popular now, such as Glee. The only reason I tuned in to watch this show was because of its huge talk and popularity among facebook and other social networking sights among my peers, so I thought it couldn’t hurt to watch a couple of episodes. After watching glee, I can see why many women and other people find this appealing. I think the main attraction that brings these certain cult shows more views is the since of nostalgia. After watching a couple epsisodes of glee, I couldn’t help but be reminded of Grease. I know many people like me, can reminisce on the good times, love stories, and good songs that Grease produced. I even loved the movie Grease, but the image of a new cult show such as Glee, trying to compete or even come close to replacing Grease is just painful to imagine.
Nostalgia has had a profound impact on the many cult shows I watch today, just becasue it usually takes me back to certain classical films and good times as I listed above. Nostalgia is one of the main reasons why I hate cult shows today, because certain cultshows will never be a classic.
