I was really impressed by your responses to my last post on icons. Your comments were candid and interesting. Culture plays a huge role in our lives and understanding which particular icons appeal to us reveals a lot about who we are inside.
I'd like to continue exploring the subject of influences, this time from the ubiquitous medium of television. My question is: what TV show most influenced you? What TV show captured your closest attention?
For most of us, it's a show from our childhood or early youth, usually with a character we identify with. Who's your favorite character?
The show explored what it was like for a young woman to be in the workplace. It's considered a feminist classic because of the ground it covered; as important as that, the show was engaging because you learned to care about Mary and her co-workers. Mary believed her colleagues at work were "family" to her and she ended up loving them.
What was your all-time favorite TV show? Why?
