Hello everyone, we’re back after a long hiatus for blogs, and on the first combined TV Thursdays and Futuristic Fridays of the year, I am going to delve into one of the questions I have had on my mind for a while, using TV shows and movies as examples as I coherently let my thoughts be known. What has often made me curious is what makes us human. Sure all of us have breath and can feel, have emotions, and can love each other, but animals have that too, so what sets us apart?
It’s been a while since my last TV Thursday post, and though my last post a few weeks ago was an introductory post about a new series- about my opinion on international shows and whether they are superior in quality to U.S. shows, I thought I would write a short special blog (combining it with Futuristic Fridays as well) as I delve into the concept of humans wanting to live forever- a theme that has been interwoven time and time again on TV, and more so this year on plenty of shows!
So many times in this Futuristic Fridays series I discussed about the future in relation to how it could be if something in this time that we take for granted was taken away from us. From a future without Spotify, Netflix, or even a future without the social relationships needed to function because of increased gaming, or the future of worship and albums with the rise in digital songs, consumerism, the dying out of CD’s and the ease of the consumer to have whatever they want with easy access; this week we tackle something different- how would our futures be if nothing was taken away, but if something was added.
