Who is your role model from television and film?

I've read how boring women will adopt their social expectations on the tv soaps they watch and it certainly explains how anime fans are the way they are. Seeing as how people spend so much time watching television these days its logical to assume that our social expectations are largely provided in this way which seems to me to be harmful as you either have as the main character:

1. The awkward nerdy guy
2. The indie movie social outcast

I'm wondering if there are certain shows that are good for you personality wise -like a guy who works hard and performs well in social situations. Think about it.

Not sure I have one, but my old housem8 once gave a presentation in his work on why captain Picard is a great manger, and how we should all be a bit more like him.

Speak for yourself m7. With the exception of Archer and GoT I watch fuck all.

With that said:

Tywin Lannister and Sterling Archer.

I read a lot of books so I think any role model I have would be an amalgamation of all the characters I have admired it the past. Having anyone as an actual role model always seemed odd to me.

I have a lot of real life role models who I only know through their work. Entirely fictional characters, though, I'm unsure.

I think emulation is a form of play or experimentation as we grow to determine how we interact with people until we establish an individual set of traits and values. We still use ideas of people or 'characters' to gauge ourselves, though, and it's more of an ongoing process than most people would admit.

Picard is a great example as he is more or less an embodiment of a set of ideals and philosophies, and I still regard the character as a good role model.

I don't know if I'd say he was a role model, but Dr Cox from Scrubs always tugged on my heartstrings. The episode where he rushes that cadaver through the transplant system so that he can chuck a bunch of organs in about ten different patients and then finds out the bloke had rabies and they all die one after the other kills me every time. The way he loses his shit and starts throwing things about and everyone just has no idea what to do because it's him and he's meant to be this big hard bloke, I just can't deal with. Telly's good sometimes.

Who's seen Mad Men? Watching it (only the first series) I'm constantly impressed by how Jon Hamm can pretend to be a man pretending to be someone else. Even more so, I know someone who said he wishes he could be Don Draper... He's too lazy to actually bother, but it would be very amusing to see him try.

I was under the impression that people (young people at least) were watching less TV than ever.

He probably means watching screens in general, if not conventional television.

Lots of people want to be Don Draper, but the whole point of Mad Men that people miss is that you shouldn't want to be Don Draper.

I'm too old to really have fictional role models any more, but as someone who grew up idolising various nerdy and/or outsider types, I'd suggest the next generation pick a different set of role models. I hope my nephews want to be someone like Captain America or Gibbs from NCIS if they want a slightly more damaged variant on the theme. The trouble with growing up admiring interestingly damaged outsiders is that sometimes you grow up to become one, and it's a lot less cool than it looks.

I've never watched Mad Men, but if Don Draper is an arsehole, then that's nothing new. A lot of favourite characters are arseholes. J.R., Dirty Den, Alf Garnett.

He's not an arsehole per se, but the reason people like him is that he's a suave, smooth and quietly confident. They've somehow missed the fact that the entire series is basically a deconstruction of that character, and reveals him to be a desperate, empty, pitiable liar.

It's really difficult to see how so many people miss it, they really start to lay it on quite thick. Still, though, he's got tonnes of money so he must be happy.

Are there any films or TV Shows with tragic protagonists that never win? I doubt it.

It seems like quite a common comedy troupe to me.

Faulty Towers, Bottom, Arrested Development, Doc Martin, Father Ted, The Inbetweeners, & Peep show all follow that rule of thumb.

Game of Thrones. Get back under your rock

It does seem to be a theme which occurs a bit more often in Japanese media than in the West. There are loads of animes where the lead character(s) have a sad ending.

I haven't watched a lot of Japanese media, but it seems like Greek-tragedy-esque films are usually produced in the East. Arab and Turks do a lot of that too. I don't see a lot of it in western works. Mainstream media is absolutely the worst. It is like a children's book, where the good guy must always win. I'm sure other mainstream media of the east are equally as vapid, we only get to see the good bits.
