Full pleasures table blank

  1. 1. Audience Pleasures in Audience Pleasures Example from Text Comedy entertainment (it’s funny) – makes us laugh at the end of a long, possibly bad day Simple conventions that are easily understood (or new variations to create interest) -Stereotypical characters - Canned laughter - Limited locations - Comic Trap - Small number of characters Simple plot – does not ask the audience to think too hard or even watch regularly Familiarity – meeting the same people regularly, we know their personalities and can predict their behaviour – like family and friends Identification with characters or situations that occur – we can relate to the characters of situation because we have experienced them Identification with themes, e.g. work, family, relationships, getting on in life – we have had the same issues 1
  2. 2. Audience Pleasures in Important social issues may be addressed – but in a humorous/ non-threatening way Narrative resolution – the satisfaction of the story ending and all loose ends tied up Awkward Situations – that we are glad we are not in and can enjoy watching other people suffer (their life is worse than yours) Narratives are based on everyday life and relationships that we understand Use of Guest Stars – This is a pleasure to watch if the audience is a fan of that star If the narrative is an ongoing the audience enjoys the developing relationships and story Different story every episode so you can enjoy it without watching the whole series 2
