After a period of initial success, perhaps lasting three or four years, the writing on the show becomes stale by using the same format and same jokes over and over. The viewing audience becomes bored, and eventually, the show fades into television oblivion. Or, as Jeff MacGregor states in The New York Times, “Historically…(successful shows) collapse under the weight of their own complacency, hanging on for a few lifeless seasons while the producers wait to cash out their millions and move to Maui.” Based on this premise, it would seem that “The Simpsons,” an animated series that debuted in 1987 as thirty second segments on “The Tracey Ullman Show,” should have worn out its welcome long ago....   [tags: essays papers] 2368 words

So much is taken in, yet so little, you find it's hard to stop to sleep or feed yourself. You're driving to get somewhere, but that somewhere doesn't matter, all that matters is driving and letting the wind take you....   [tags: essays research papers] 757 words

Success: Damaging for the Student Soul - Society’s definition of success is a negative influence on students. This is not to say that obtaining “success” itself means badly. Rather, it is what society perceives success to be that makes it detrimental. By inherently putting the focus on “success”, man is essentially putting himself on the road of self-destruction and sabotaging his self-identity. In fact, success is a word that should not exist. It is a reflection of man’s over-egoistical need to better than others, and will ultimately lead to his undoing....   [tags: Education ]

My Definition of Success - When I think of success, I think of a bumper sticker I saw once which read, “He who dies the most toys wins”.

I think success in a person is defined by happiness and people’s pride in being a good person.

Seizing the objective, destroying the enemy or defending the hill are all examples of military operations that are assigned a task and purpose that must be completed.
