**Explain why it is your favorite/what you like about it – in as much detail as possible. Try to give REASONS for your opinion, and give examples as EVIDENCE.
For example, One of my favorite TV shows is “The Walking Dead” which shows what life would be like after the zombie apocalypse. It made me think about things like: How would you get food? What would happen to our government? Our technology? I also think the characters are really diverse and complex. For example, Rick has changed a lot since the beginning of the show. His struggles with becoming the leader have been interesting to watch. Carl is also an interesting character because we get to see how this new world has impacted his life. He’s a child but yet he doesn’t live the life of a child. In some ways, he is incredibly mature and in other situations we see how young he really is.
