Question: Is television essentially different to film? Refer to any two television episodes, at least one of which must have been screened on the module.

With regards to my essay, go on the historical spectrum of television. Mention the history of television and how it came about. Show how there is no distinctive difference between the two because of streaming services such a Netflix. because You are now able to watch both on streaming platforms. Feel free to put this in your own way. (as I’m not sure if this is a good argument)

The information below must be used in my essay in terms of referencing and the episodes which you are meant to use to argue my point.

Use episodes from the list below (2):

Viewing: I Love Lucy (Season 1, Episode 1 [1951]: “The Girls Want To Go To The Nightclub”)

Friends (Season 2, Episode 12 [1996]: “The One With The Lesbian Wedding”)
