TVTP 1000: Theory
Television transcripts are a resource for casually exploring America's world identity: the entertainer [shadetree mechanic is intrigued] I believe we used to be the automobile maker *. Years ago, shade tree mechanics were everywhere in the United States. And people discussed car makes, models, and years in everyday conversation. Now armchair television critics are everywhere in the United States instead. Our shade tree mechanics are largely extinct--many Americans don't even care what goes on under their car hood. Yet in both eras Americans were doing the same thing: exploring our world identity (one is aware of this identity on some level). Before: amateurs dissecting cars; today: amateurs dissecting video entertainment.
    We have always known that we don't have to be inactive or solemn to [the inner workings] explore our world identity. We know it's all very highly important, but we have fun with it! We joke about characters, discuss plots, criticize productions. Don't a large amount of friendly discussions start with "did you see your favorite TV show goes here last night?" Television transcripts are another way of casually "having a look under the hood" of video entertainment: reading a loved program (or a hated one), acting out scenes, re-writing parts of the dialogue, and re-arranging things!
 
[What an adorable transcript!] "But wait! There's more!"
