Recently I've noticed an evolution in television. Shows are increasingly incorporating more than one area of interest. We are seeing more than simple medical dramas, or legal dramas, etc. I'm thinking about Global's Combat Hospital, a show about a Canadian forces medical team located in Kandahar. It is presented in such a way that would intrigue people interested in disciplines like medicine or military, and culture in Afghanistan. The characters are also diverse, so that it caters to a wider audience.
Are there other shows the are increasing their range? As a side, Degrassi is getting weirder. Scary if this is a reflection of today's teen society.
