Are They a Good Person? (The New "Likable")


As "prestige" TV continues to trend towards more and more morally ambiguous characters, the space between hero and anti-hero has become less clearly-defined, raising questions of whether the characters we love to watch are "good" or "likeable," and if that should affect whether or not we root for them.

Join us as we attempt to unpack this topical trend, discuss why we're drawn to morally unsavory characters as much as (if not more than) saintly ones, and attempt to answer the question: How much does likeability really matter?
