On Monday, Allison Brennan posted an interesting read (Romancing the Blog) about her thoughts on how indepth character backgrounds show up in television. It was really interesting and made me think about how now some of the different shows work in this aspect. When I had more time and watched a variety of shows I could just spout off character info to my hubby if he needed to catch up. But some of the shows on television are more reality now than plot and character driven.
One show that instantly came to mind was Grey's Anatomy. I think they are pretty good about throwing in past history and family issues with each one of the characters to show reasons for their personality. Like Meredith Grey and her personal relationships with people and how her mother/father issues affect her.
Is that something you notice in any of the television you may watch?
