SWF seeks TV

Filed under: Psychology, TV — posted by Breakup Girl @ 8:02 am

Science Daily: “New research by psychologists at the University at Buffalo and Miami University, Ohio, indicates that illusionary relationships with the characters and personalities on favorite TV shows can provide people with feelings of belonging, even in the face of low self esteem or after being rejected by friends or family members.”

I could have told you that. (But I told Liz Lemon instead.)

  1. My buddy Forest grew up in Alaska, somewhat deprived of the company of TV friends most young adults had. When he enlisted in the army, he was amazed how many different guys, no matter where they came from in the United States, all knew the same people. “How the heck does everyone here but me know this guy Chandler?”

  2. Funny, living in NYC makes it seem like I’m a constant extra on Seinfeld.
