Example of TV Drama
the questionnaire was carried out by doing interviews in my media class and this is some of the response that i received...
Hi my critical research project is on lost and why it's such a international media success.
Hello I'm doing my research on ABC's TV drama Lost and why it's been such a international media success.
I posted a questionnaire about the OC on myspace and channel 4's OC fansite and i also interviewed people in my media class...these are the questions that I asked...
One of the most useful sources through using internet sources is Youtube.com because it enables me to view almost any episode of the OC from any series that i choose, which is helpful for viewers who want to catch up on any missed episodes or eager fans who want to get ahead of he story lines and watch future episodes.
I have chosen to focus my research onto TV Drama and the media..I have chosen The OC as my TV Drama as I believe its easier to focus on a specific TV drama than to focus on many. In doing so i'm more able be detailed in answering my question in relation to my topic. In researching the OC, i can apply to that particular TV drama instead of having to apply to several others. My question in a roundabout way is, "How is the US Hit Tv Drama, the OC, such a popular tv drama in its appeal to the youths in the UK and how does it relate to the young generation?" By researching thoroughly, i hope to answer this question and find out why tv dramas such as the OC have such a strong appeal.

at first i was going to do some research based on the TV Drama Desperate Housewives, but after some consideration i have decided to focus on TV drama in general and have come up with the question "is there such thing as a tv drama fan?". this gives me the option to bring together a range of different dramas, instead of focusing on one, in which case it may be harder to find the information that i want. seeing as i watch a few tv dramas i think it may be a relevant subject to use.

Comic book aspect interests people, people aspire to be heroes themselves flying etc. (linking to their fantasies), its different from other shows. Good acting too. Keeps you interested. Cliffahngers every episode keep you on the edge of your seat. Intertwining storyline is interesting and its good how you see all the characters slowly coming together for the finale of Season 1

1. who watches them?
no books on heroes yet as it is still new in the UK, so i will have to use the internet for research and references.
My idea is based on a T.V drama 'Dub Plate Drama' which is related to Black Images on British T.V
