Learning Empathy From Television

Learning Empathy From Television

By Katelyn Mae Petrin

"Doctor Who's early seasons are almost appallingly idealistic. They teach an empathy that's bursting with optimism, where super ordinary people are capable of amazing things[...]and then Buffy slams you with a picture of the world much more like it actually is—where people you should be able to trust are demons and your friends try to kill you. Where being good is hard."
