40 Hours of Television

The class is over, but the discussion continues. Does the media shape reality, or does reality shape the media? Art can imitate life...and life can imitate art. "40 Hours of TV" will explore the media and its impact on us all.

40 Hours of Television

Welcome to 40 Hours of Television, a personal diary of my television watching project for Portland Community College's Philosophy 197 class, Television and The Presentation of Reality. The class studies different forms of media and how "reality" is portrayed in television, movies, commercials and video games. A requirement for the class is to watch 40 hours of television and keep a journal. What better way to keep a journal than to let the whole world look at it?

Join me, as I turn my brain to mush in watching 40 hours of television. And maybe, just maybe, we'll learn something along the way.
