RTH 1 - If people took shows personally they would have to cancel SVU. People who do take them seriously, need help.

RJ 1 - I agree depends on individuals but it's not the question of taking it seriously, some people who dedicate few hours on TV, are pulled into it. With Adv / Promotions etc.. it's somewhat kinna addiction works and they relate to one or many characters... switch around at prime times almost all channels(desi), having similar saga going onn. It's kind a mental block of routine ups and down, only problem I feel arise when channels are promoting it to extremity...



RTH 2 - The medium is pure fiction meant for entertainment. There is a certain amount of psychological involvement in any show, movie or book. Entertainment should have the ability to grip audiences. If we try to draw a line on what amount of psychological involvement a show should be allowed to have then we are stepping in murky waters.

RJ2 -Thats the whole issue, not we but production houses should ensure to be confined within the that so called thin line when acknowledging and respecting sentiments of audiences who are, so called faithfull lot. For Example (disclaimer TOM and Jerry Fan..avoid reading further) we all love Tom and Jerry...age no bar, this shows has special place in our hearts...all love Jerry kicking Tom's ...  but fact is cat eat mouse... if some new creative story writer joins the team and plans brutal killing of Jerry, that is propoganded with pans to finally bring Jerry's twin bro to beat Tom...a fictional story..but would it hurt feelings to see or learn Jerry was sliced and eatened in yummy Tom's sandwiches...if not anyone personally atleast I and few of people I know won;t like it... bottom line is cater your audiences and do not cross limits...

RTH- 3Tom and Jerry is a very incorrect analogy in this case as Tom and Jerry is aimed for children.

RJ3 - Well Jerry holds a very soft spot in my heart too..how can you say it's aimed for kiddosLOLLOL I just intended to provide what extremity can go to with that example... not a one to one comparisons...examples you gave below if causes immense emotional distressed they are come into same grade of soaps then... BTW did Harry Potter finally die..wonder why?Wink

RTH 4 - I too watch Tom and Jerry and a whole load of cartoons. But I consider myself a three year old. Cannot ignore the target market. Most people take character deaths in a good stride. A small percent of population is always emotionally distressed over some negative aspect. There were people saddened that Dumbledore died although more people were upset when he turned gay. People who take fiction personally need help. Period.

There is a large population who is dissapointed Harry Potter did not die either.

RJ5 - Agreed, need help if they themselves are solely responsible to take it personally but if driven into that stage without realizing where to hit the brakes, responsibility of show makers, again am talking about unacceptable extremities causing needless stress. Big smile
Read views of ppl wanting HP's death, majority of folks are uninterested or don't like HP for them it's matter of idc attitudeTongue!!

RTH 2- Xena and Gabrielle were crucified by the Romans at the end of the fourth season. Also at the end of the series Xena dies. Prue was killed of at the end of the third season of Charmed.

The Harry Potter series had so many deaths of popular characters. Sirius Black was killed of at the end of book five. Me and a lot of my friends were disappointed, we loved the character of Sirius and were hoping that there would be a lot more of the series. We wore T-Shirts that said "Book 5 never happened. Siriusly!" to the Prisoner of Azkaban midnight showing. Killing him of left us quite saddened. Did that mean we took it personally? Did it mean Rowling did not respect our sentiments? Not at all - it is a fictional story - sometimes characters die or horrible things happen to them as part of the story. It is not disrespectful to the characters fan. It is a plot element.

In 'The Two Towers' movie they brought in Haldir and killed him at Helmsdeep.. A sequence not in the book at all. In the book it is insinuated that he traveled west with all the other elves. Should this non contextual killing of a character be taken personally?


RTH1 - There are lot more graphic and disturbing shows out there. There are shows that portray graphic sex and violence. There are reality based shows that recount stories of rape victims, prisoners of war, abused children and a whole lot more that is sick and hard hitting. The news itself is graphic. During the months after 9/11 several people had Post traumatic stress disorder from merely watching the news.

RJ2 - Yes there are for which choice of watching them or not is easy.... but here we are talking about soaps..who build and get audiences involved for period of years and have a tragic turn...so unfair to them

RTH 2 - Soaps have been notorious for decades for having such tragic twists and turns. The TV show Friends poked a lot of fun at outrageous deceptions and tragedies portrayed in Days of Our Lives through Dr. Drake Ramoray.

RJ3 - Notorious yes ofcourse reason it's bought up IS THERE A limit when it's not more amusing but causing human stress... okay for few folks...but they aren't physically or mentally sick...it's this whole cycle of enchantment of the way soaps are written these days... which is causing this unwanted agony in the name of entertainment...yeah it's personal choice so it's fair. First start with small potions of likeable sodas to people..slowly increase it...then start adding alcohol in it... without knowledge of whats coming nextWink...sure it's the problem of people who started of with small potions of sodasLOL

RTH 4 - It causes stress in a select few. A few stressed people cannot be used to represent the entire soap watching population.

RJ5 Few out of entire soap watching population, considering our population comes out large individual numbersWink (Mentioned few to bring your focus particular section, atleast to establish an understanding whethere, base problem exisits or no Smile )

RTH2 - Grieving after a soap's tragic turn and calling it unfair is like saying 300 is so unfair - they killed all Spartans at the end, or getting pissed of at the Bible because they killed of Jesus in the end. It is like hitting your head on a brick wall and accusing the wall of causing your bleeding.

 RJ 3 - Thoses are well known facts and very well presented in holy books and acceptable, no one looses sleep reading it as it happened. Don't wanna take any religious example here... but what about Super Hero one is actually following up with and thanks for some gross imagination of FICTIONAL writer brings that super hero to brutalist death when least expect...am sure it's time to appauld the twist and turn of the writer, isn't it?

RTH4 - Soaps rely on tragic deaths and twists - thats a fact. It is a fact known from decades of soap broadcast. From Days of our lLves to Emmerdale soaps have relied on shock value. You enter viewership aware of this. Claiming distress later is akin to knowing the outcome and still complaining about it.

Superheroes do die - 
1993 Superman vol.2 #75 Superman was killed at the hands of Dr. Doomsday and died in Lois Lanes arms.
Several superheroes including Supergirl and The Flash died during the DC Comic series 'Crisis of the infinite earths'
Dr. Jean Grey dies at the end of the Dark Phoenix Saga.

Death is but a natural outcome and the creator may choose to kill the character at anytime for whatsoever reason or cause terrible harm - deal with it.  

RJ5 - Am not advocating everything should be rosy rosy, focus here is extreme, here and there is fine, should not go unbound in the name of trps costing stress, by undigestable tragedy and twistTongue.
 

RTH1 - I am sorry, but when there is so much in the world that could be affecting us that deserves our attention - I can have no sympathy for people who are troubled by a mere soap. When there are some teenagers out there who can stomach real crime shows with maturity - these people who let soaps effect them like this are pathetic excuses for human beings.

RJ2 - Thats another issue altogether..which family living a day to day life bothers whats going around...sad but true... they believe in work..coming hom ..eating dinner over some TV Show... yeah human beingsWink expect the unexpected... if people start thinking like some individuals on DM life will change, if that is gona happenTongue

RTH1 - A soap is entertainment. It is meant to be enjoyed and then forgotten. There maybe characters we love and feel for, but obsession over them is ridiculous. If someone is getting involved in a soap so much that it mentally affects them then it is NOT the soaps fault. It is the fault of people who are immature and cannot control themselves. Maybe it is difficult for people to control themselves, maybe it is an impulse that is hard to fight - but that is what psychiatrists are there for.

RJ2 - No it's not obsession...its just one starts living with routine... if the doorstep bhajiwala of 10 years, suddenly is not comming at 9:00Am ..then there is unrest...becomes a routine... Obviously difficult for people to control... if everyone could control themselves..world would have have a totally different place to live... but for uncontrollable actions there are reasons...and thats we are trying to address and understand I guess..

RTH2 - If you have a habit that you cannot break out of then it is no longer a habit it has turned into obsession or addiction. Would you accept an alcoholic claiming routine, oh drinking has been a routine for past ten years I cannot break out of it. Yes not everyone can control themselves that is why there is alcoholics anonymous, drug rehab, psychiatric support, prison facilities. If a soap is causing withdrawal unrest in people it is no longer a show, it is an addiction and people need help.

RJ3 -and am saying no need of help when there is an alternative by setting standards on the level of exploitation of human emotions. Like there are restrictions on selling alcohol/cig to <18....

RTH4 - You cannot start putting restrictions on everything idiots get addicted to. We should have the ability to put our own restrictions. If my gaming or internet usage affects my life then that is something I have to deal with or get help with. 'I' should be putting restriction not having 'someone' restrict it for 'everybody'. Same things with soaps, people need to deal with their issues or seek help if they cannot.

RJ5 - There are many habits in humans that hard to kick, no worries unless they are harmless or infact are beneficial, they too comes under addiction / obsession ? then that term is fine with me. Alcohol has been known to cause harm (generally, understand some intake is beneficial) that's a universally known fact, but this new emotional distressed caused by soaps is kind of harmful...When a problem is getting out of proportions (protest against Ekta to stop age old sagas, ppl had enuff) and there is possibility to curtail it from root rather then at individual level then, why not? But there is problem aright. Ideally in all cases of addiction / obsession its individuals fault, isn't it? Then there are restrictions... best part for such individuals (alcoholic etc) it still is pleasure not stress... I too hope this is tackled by individuals, if they know or aware of consequence that can be harmful in the name of entertainment... one is going on merry soap ride whatever you call based on addiction / obsession and suddenly comes a drastic twist makes one fall emotionally from top of merry go round down on the groundOuch. yeah right people shouldn't watching any soaps at allWink as the trend followed by channel houses is going down hill from entertainment to painful entertainment.

RTH2 -Now do not run the argument that it is addictive so it must be banned. Coffee is addictive, so is soda, music and movies are addictive - any object that brings pleasure, fun and excitement has addictive potential. Just because 1% abuse and addict does not mean you punish the 99% sane remainder.

So again I reiterate someone was upset with a person dying on a soap. S**t happens deal with it. Get help if you cannot. If you cannot handle the heat then get out.

RJ3 - LOL Don't ban it but restrict it, thinking humanely no one deserves unwanted stress when least called for. Dose these soaps give a disclaimer saying watching this episode u might be mentally s*ed... People are unaware / unknown and unable to get really handle such fictionous situation...but they are normal beings...as per yoiur suggestion half of India at present upset about some soap charater dying should seek mental rehab Tongue

RTH4 - There is a difference between being upset and obsessively upset. A lot of people get upset. People can be upset and move on. The only reasonable restriction for television is the TV ratings. Since most Indian soaps do not have sex or violence it would be mostly PG-13 or at the worst NC-17. However, considering that the people who need help are full grown adults I do not see any fruit coming from it.

RJ5 - Either ways upset, purposeful overdose of something in either case, to intentionally make people upset, to gain trps..way to go!!Wink  

My reccomended cure for the issue is to submerge oneself into reading the result of the fertile imagination of twelve year old kids in the multiverse of fanfiction out there till you find that your entire childhood is a demented blur of disturbing visions of Acid!Fic. Then nothing in this world will ever effect you.

RJ5 - Good one! Even then it is subjected to each individuals perception how well they can mold thier mental receptors, to face anything. Not possible for all in question here, reason to look for other alternatives.

Dead, what do you mean dead. There was no blood or organs.

 

RTH1 - Start censoring the soaps right to broadcast, promote and advertise. What next........public litigation against roadrunner for mental trauma and physical damage to Wily Coyote?

RJ2 - LOL Why not? Any harm being cause to individuals, majority of them even becuase of weakness... that can be corrected easily without the healthy few objects, whats the harm? After all we all should look after each other...no one is perfect...if one is strong in some aspects and compromises...there are others strong in one's weakness, ready to compromise for betterment...LOLSS not necessarily but what is wrong in doing what one expects...

Had seen few episodes of that (all well till dat in US, in India running few episodes ahead, I guess) and kasam sey out of choice and really felt these guys pushing hard on emotions. First target housewives and make them relate to serials then twist them to play hard, how unfair is it..even though people understand but sometimes gets to emotional side of it.

Wish there were laws against it, to save typical soap followers from distress...should there be any laws?? heard few weeks back that there was a morcha near Ekta's office to quit these sagas...aren't people fed up with channels playing with innocent emotions?

Now how can you take away freedom of thought and expression......moreover its fiction ....any crap can happen any time in a story, you always have a choice to watch or not to, i don't understand why people take it to heights.....Ouch

like what I do is. out of the serials i follow,  i don't watch serials which take a left on the nonsense road....and all the time they are there i don't switch to it.....and when the trailors show that there is going to be a right turn, i quickly take it from there..Big smile..so that it is...depends on an individual, what quality serials he wants to see and how well he wants to enjoy, don't people have better things to brood , than on fake character deaths....Ouch

ya, but when they change the actor then that is depressing, i think they should have a law for that....Smile

No one is taking the right to expression, but limit? .... Mental asylum bana padega if left loose on expression, pagal kar degge trp's ke naam parWink Saas bhi Bahu Mental Asylum...Dulhan Mental Health recovery centre etc.. LOL

hmm, yeah i peek a boo did too.Embarrassed , i am surprised why i don't feel so bad about the pain on their death, guess i have become strong after seeing many of my favs die ....in ekta shamshaan......hmmmm. yeh baat ho sakti hai .....WinkEmbarrassed

Personally, I hate soaps. If it were up to me I would ban each and everyone of them. They are the most worthless mind numbing idiocratic piece of crap ever produced in history. They are the worst thing you can ever do with your time and will reduce your IQ to that of a pea, perhaps even a pea is smarter than soap watching people.

Despite my vehement dislike for soaps, I simply cannot advocate for the banning or restricting of soaps in any way shape of form. Trying to restrict them is simply not right, it disrespectfully tramples over the freedom and expression of people.

People have the right to watch what they want. Whether it is religious programming or some silly game show, whether it is a crime series or a soap opera; people should have the say in what they want to watch. Writers and directors have creative authority over what their creation. Whatever elements they add in scripting and for whatever reason - social awareness, personal expression or popularity and ratings - the creators have absolute right to do what they want. It is their creation.

Some creators like to flow with public consensus and cater to the masses, some like to snub the masses. It is completely their prerogative.

This has become quite a ridiculous world we live in. Personal responsibility and accountability mean nothing any more. Sensibility, discretion, moderation, reason are all human processes being flushed down the toilet.

As the days go by we are becoming dumber as a race, needing to be told whats going on. We need labels to tell that a cup of expresso or a bowl of soup is hot. We need labels to tell us ice is cold.

When I was a kid and cried because I lost in some game, mom would tell me it's just a game, I need to grow up and be a better sport. We are moving in a direction where we change the rules so no one loses instead of teaching children to be better people. If I spent too much time playing PC games or watching TV, mom would yell at me that I was irresponsible and not doing things I should do. We are moving in a direction where it is never our fault if we watched too much TV or played to many games. They need to make things less addictive. Sometimes little kids cry when bad things happen in fairy tales, parents tell them it is just a story. Parents take accountability in making sure that their children know the differene between make believe and reality. We are moving in a direction where we are shirling our responsibilities and blaming others. We expect them to do what we must.

When a person becomes too involved in a soap opera and is upset by the outcomes, they have no one to blame but themselves. Its just a book, its just a game, its just a movie, its just a show - these are little things we expect kids to be aware of. For centuries young people have drawn the line between captivated by myths and tales, absorbing stories and still learned to tell the difference. When an adult loses that rational capacity, they have no one to blame but themselves.

Stop allowing people to flush away their own rationality, responsibility and accountability and blame it on the soap opera. If they are too involved, help them get away from it. If they are too upset, tech them to get over it.

Why do we want to take away their ability to use their brain and completely alter their environment so they can safely be brain dead. So that they may waste away their life in front of the television with no undue stress, with nothing to upset them or scare them - nothing ever that would want them to do something else. Yes lets further assist soap opera viewers in killing their brain cells by denying them the opportunity to think and make them into television zombies. Wonderful!

haha..I kind of agree

Although I also think that with some shows people should get slightly affected like with Amber Dhara, the story of conjoined twins and Jassi Jaisi koi nahin where people can learn not do discriminate people by the way that they look.

I have heard that in rural villages they leave disabled babies or baby girls to die on the streets, so if these types of shows help parents realise that everyone is unique and girls are as important as boys then I say let people get emotionally involved.

Although I do feel some shows like the ones where saas bahus try and kill each other are slightly too much. Especially if bahu's watch and try to poison their saas after watching.
LOL

like what I do is. out of the serials i follow,  i don't watch serials which take a left on the nonsense road....and all the time they are there i don't switch to it.....and when the trailors show that there is going to be a right turn, i quickly take it from there..Big smile..so that it is...depends on an individual, what quality serials he wants to see and how well he wants to enjoy, don't people have better things to brood , than on fake character deaths....Ouch

ya, but when they change the actor then that is depressing, i think they should have a law for that....Smile

No one is taking the right to expression, but limit? .... Mental asylum bana padega if left loose on expression, pagal kar degge trp's ke naam parWink Saas bhi Bahu Mental Asylum...Dulhan Mental Health recovery centre etc.. LOL

LOL LOL woh bhi aisey waiseu nahee....tere naam wale LOL aik bar phase tho phir nikalna mushkil

mere naam waleyLOL Yeah Yeah jaha dekho Salman Khan hi yaad aata hai...Radhey Radhey... iss ladhki ka koi ilaazj karo LOLLOL nikalney ki jarot bhi kya hai...neend ki goli looo tension duur karo LOL

hear yaa it's fiction...not not understand that way by few...ha ha ha @ brood over SV death... jsut took a sneak peek...in that section... u might be surprised to see the dukh some are goind thru...Embarrassed

hmm, yeah i peek a boo did too.Embarrassed , i am surprised why i don't feel so bad about the pain on their death, guess i have become strong after seeing many of my favs die ....in ekta shamshaan......hmmmm. yeh baat ho sakti hai .....WinkEmbarrassed

LOL Ekta Shamshan LOL oh did u pee a boo..See what am sayin... sad to see it's been taken so much at heart...did u also read that article how SV parents had to cope in real life to watch the whole unwanted orchestration...wonder what they showed itney logg tension mey

okay if we go for some law, like what kind of restrictions can we put....

- dont reapeat crap - dont drag crap - dont kick out and rope in suddenly -

these from my side....and never change the main lead guys ...Ouch 

LOLLOLLOL be under certain limits and donot operate in fixed more of trps, trps and trps...at whatever cost. If given the option they might shoot viewers from TV screen to gain trps (lil extra extreme isnt itWink) LOLLOL

 

LOLLOL kya prove karney ka iraada hai...ma brain smaller then pea LOLLOL No yaar reality shows are enuff for my mind torture... just read Telly news or following a troublesome member or mention of something i DM...I go and visit sections and read updated or views... it hillarious sometimes....LOL
