    I’ve just read an article from Indiewire that, while not particulary well written or anything, still made me reflect. Here’s the link: http://www.indiewire.com/2018/02/here-and-now-hbo-original-series-netflix-1201927274/

    Do you agree with its main point? Moreover, I was reflecting on which shows could be considered “diverse” in the comtemporary landscape of television. For me an example might be You’re the Worst, in the sense that its constant blend of comedy and drama (often, in the same scene) is something I almost never see on tv, and it always manages to leave me confused, in a good way. Hannibal – although its run is over, was another diverse show, in terms of visuals and imagery. The Leftovers and Twin Peaks were two other clearly “diverse” shows.
    Also, I assume the whole “diversity” thing can be interpreted in many ways, for istance from a social point of view (like, the diversity of a tv series for its use of characters rapresenting often overlooked minorities). What’s your take on it? What’s your conception of diversity in tv and which shows represent it best?

    I think “American Gods” might fit in this concept.
