Ini this version, holy rnatrimony ia stats of perpetual conflict. . bf course; theres plenty ' of conflict.. in marriage. . If nuu risge were just one . big sweet eohfectlon, the whole institution might eventually perish of dis-hte8.-., :TC: So let me emphasize that I'm not plugging here for a perpetually sweet and totally unrealistic view of matrimony on TV. X simply protest the . depressingly large proportion -of. TV drama and comedy that tritely and with exaggeration treats the theme of marriage. '- Xts axiomatic that drama, has to havs conflict. Ifa axiomatic that the' theme of marriage commands wide interest. Therefore, you see ' the third step of this syllogism on your TV sTeenf so frequently," Not a night passes that at least one drama Is. not preoccupied with the bust-up or patch-up of a marriage. j - ' j - . ' ; .v. -- ; Vi i i d I'iv, usuAZxr aANAid'V,- v j Rarely does television : treat tha ' theme of marriage .without banality. Watch for these developments on the next televised matrlmonal tangle you witness:; The wife is usually, sensitive and perceptive.': The husband is usually good-hearted but Inclined to be rather a. slob because hes weak or crass or misguided. , Occasionally ' there's a reverse switch, but ln the general wives have better characters than husbands on TV. Im not sure why this should he.; But X . have theory. X believe ifa the advertising agency influence, which la enormous on file scripts of many fliows,' In the effort to please the ladies, we emerge aa heels, gentlemen.' : J At the : denouncement' of this typical marriage drama hi and wife are reunited thanks to some revelation" usually. Instigated by the wif eJ 1 ,5 .T Ive looked at quite a bit of daytime soap opera. In aome respects ; they are : more realistic than some nighttime dramas." In them, for example, people do separate - and' get . divorced one on one program three times. 'v' Y ... NOTUFE-LXKE Yet in general"the marriage dramas of TV are not life-like because their solutions are , contrived and do not stem from true characterization. The bickering la realistic enough.'' But between the bickering and the contrived solutions Ive had, more. than enough of em. V."- L J VO 1 The elements of drama Era carried into 'ituation - comedy.' Somebody ought to think up j new name for that;' by the way. Because. the situation of a guy and his wife bickering indefinitely 7 on the T screen : just Isn't comedy. It a as embarrassing as watching;' a guy; and his wife bicker indefinitely at a party. After a while you want to get out of there and go home.- And if it a a chronic situation with a couple you Just dont want to go back. ; ; All couples have disagree-ments,;but - if -..they .have good Judgment they agree to disagree in the privacy of their homes. There he can belt her with, rhetoric and aha can sock him with logic and no one' also will,; suffer. I wish soma of these people on television would try to be as considerate of the viewing au-dlence.
