British and Arabs agree: unrealistic expectations from TV dramas

A while back, the Turkish TV soap opera Noor saw wide viewership in the Arab world, in subtitled form. Several divorces has been attributed to this show, with social scientists attributing this to unrealistic expectations by some viewers vs. real life.

Now, British researchers have independently reached a similar conclusion: romantic comedies set unrealistic expectations, and hence ruin couple's relationship.

Its definintely a given that tv dramas dont exactly follow "real life" but I guess I would've hoped that couples would be able to realize that what they on tv is not the norm to be accepted, and understand they needn't try to live up to those teachings

Don't, don't

People, don't watch those soup operas. The are draining your brain.
