Essay #3 (E3): Justifying an Evaluation
The whole purpose of a writing class is for you all to learn how to communicate better with the people around you and be able to understand your world better. Entertainment is a critical part of our world: it’s how we have fun with others and have fun alone. I had a professor once who said that while she was getting her PhD, she was incredibly busy with studying, classes, and work, so she had no social life. However, she had the TV show, Friends! She explained how those characters became her virtual friends who she became invested in and was able to “meet up with” every week. This consistent social interaction got her through those busy, potentially lonely years.
However, entertainment also holds great power over our minds and actions. It has the ability to control how we think of ourselves and how we think of others, and thus it has the ability to control how we treat ourselves and how we treat others. This is the cause of our current societal debate on why it is so important for entertainment to reflect our diverse nation so that everyone is properly represented and celebrated.
Thus, that is our task with this essay: to share our opinions (basically, write a review) about an element of entertainment (a movie/movie series, theatre production, television series, restaurant, museum, place of entertainment, video game/video game series, music video, a song, an album, etc.) that has affected our lives and discuss whether or not it properly promotes diversity/raises awareness for a typically silenced issue/etc.
