Real Family Values on the Small Screen
In too much media, our culture’s family orientation is portrayed as a bad thing. If you believed what you’ve watched, you’d think our families are what keep us from going away to college, escaping gang violence, and achieving our dreams. But thanks to 2017’s Coco, we finally have a mainstream example of what it looks like when collectivism is presented positively. I’m expecting more love for the family from Party of Five, with the show dramatizing the power of sticking together.
