Psychology of Cult TV Shows
A panel of therapists and scientists (mad or otherwise), including Dr. Janina Scarlet (The Superhero Manual), Dr. Travis Langley (Batman and Psychology: A Dark and Stormy Knight), Dr. Ali Mattu (Nerd Hour), and Billy San Juan (Alliant International University) discuss the psychology behind TV shows, such as Doctor Who, Sherlock, Firefly, Grimm, and Buffy. Find out how TV shows might help us cope with painful experiences and geek out in discussing such fundamental questions as: With all the regenerations, what is the Doctor's true identity? What makes Sherlock a better detective than London's finest? What does psychology tell us about the demons that live inside us? With these questions and more, this panel is a must for loyal fans of these shows.
