Pop Culture

When I first sat down to start this blog, I thought I’d focus more heavily on current and historical events in the real world. But as time went on, I started writing more and more posts about pop culture. At first, I tried to stay close to themes having to do with Jewish culture–like with this review of In Treatment, or religious topics–like with this review of Caprica. But soon, I moved beyond those restraints and wrote more generally about the movies and television I consume.

I’d like to think that I’m still remaining true to myself, because I don’t watch the tube or the silver screen lightly. At least for the most part, when I blog about a subject, I intend to have something substantial to say. Often I focus on what’s most interesting to me–including the portrayal of women, religion and Judaism in pop culture, and the role of empathy in the stories we tell.
