I want to question the whole Pakistan’s television industry on the behalf of the whole country.
WHY WOULD YOU SHOW REPETITIVE CONTENT AGAIN AND AGAIN?
Pakistani women is so fond of watching TV shows, because they find it as an escape from their boring routine but they are now tired of same repetitive content that you show.
There are two types of shows that are most common among the women,
a) Morning shows
b) 7th hour’s show and so on.
Let’s talk about type a.
The Morning Shows!
Morning shows are all about,
- Planning someone’s wedding all over again after the couple being married for 10 years or maybe more or less, you spend a lot of money on it. Why would you do that?
- Celebrating someone celebrity’s birthday – okay I get that, you can interview that particular celebrity. But why would you do that every year?
- Competition of dance, singing and make up!
- The worst, calling a kid whose video went viral and ask him to show his anger, that’s purely unethical and unacceptable!
The Daily soaps!
I feel like either we don’t have good writers in the industry anymore or they’re on writer’s block at the moment.
You may switch to any channel, one thing that you would find common is a women who’s crying, a women who has been divorced or a women who has an abusive husband or living a toxic life or it’s a complete opposite of it there’s nothing in between.
But with white and black there is grey too.
Women can be strong, independent, and vocal about her thoughts without becoming the villain of the story.
Show the real women, and about the men, don’t even ask – either he’s too nice or too bad and toxic.
Okay we get it; the real world is a lot uglier than it’s shown in the TV shows but television leaves a marks on 8 out of 10 of its viewers they tend to adapt what they see on television. If we start showing the real world then the world would become so toxic that no one would want to live in it with peace.
We already have a lot of problems going on in our daily lives, for that reason we want to see something light-hearted, something that makes us smile rather than giving us more reason to walk towards serious depression.
