    Default Diagnosis Swingtown

    I was just posting regarding last night's episode and I had the thought that the way some of us (myself included) analyze each episode and diagnose what is going on with each couple is much akin to the way we deal with various situations that are brought to us here on the board. The big difference is that we are watching them unfold in the third person and while we don't see EVERYTHING we do typically see both sides of the reaction (which is more than we see when an issue is brought up here). It is still very interesting to see things pop up on the show that we encounter here so often.

    It's not perfect, and it doesn't always go the way we like it to. But much like real life, we only see the parts we see, and we have no idea where the journey is going to take us in the end. Although unlike real life there are some writers somewhere who do know where it's going and have already written it out.

    Well, presumably they are using a least a few "expert" consultants, probably swingers who were pretty active in the 70's. It would be interesting to know if these experts are still active now. We just hope they don't take the swinging vs. cheating thing too far and ruin the show.

    I guess fans of a show are always over-analyzing everything.
    We just happen to have a bit more knowledge about the subject, then we have when anazyzing about Buffy staking a vampire

    Speak for yourself. We both loved that show and analyzed it to death

    But seriously although we may not have as much experience as others on this forum we definately have discussion following every episode and have an open dialouge about how we would have handeled these situations.

    A lot of shows generate discussion among it's fans, but this one is a bit more fun in that we do (most of us on here, anyway) have some actual experience with the subject matter. It's interesting for us to get a glimpse into what the lifestyle was like in he 70's and to see that some of the same issues/situations we have encountered still happen today. The post-show analysis has the added benefit of allowing us to apply some of the recommendations we'd make to the characters to ourselves, as well.

    Seeing both sides of that issue does make that analysis easier, too.

    I'd rather go to hell for doing something I enjoyed than heaven wondering what it's like.
