I am not sure exactly what you define as positive art. I realize that we do not share the same religious and philosophical outlook but I think any art that makes me think about the human condition and our place in the cosmos is positive but then I do not believe there is any great purpose in life and that using your mind to explore your universe is important. As far as TV, I think there are a number of thought provoking shows and some that are just plain fun to watch (I also believe laughing and enjoying life is a purpose in itself). I do not care for reality shows but there are some reasonably good dramas on TV now. Grey’s Anatomy, Veronica Mars, Bones, Boston Legal, Desperate Housewives and Lost are all shows that illustrate the uniqueness of the human condition. They are generally well written with good dialog (well except for Lost) and an occasional genuine moment of emotional resonance (I have never actually admitted this publicly but I absolutely love Grey’s Anatomy – it often leaves me in tears). Not everyone will agree on this particular selection but I absolutely believe that these shows do not “suck”. There are other shows that I do not care for that also would fall in the “do not suck” category but that is to be expected – we all are looking for different things in our art. I don’t care for saccharin sweet shows where everything turns out happily ever after (these are the shows that are usually held up as examples of positive art) but to each their own. Now none of these shows compares to Buffy and Angel and I do not expect to be watching and discussing these shows three years after they leave the air but then a couple of years ago if anybody had suggested I would be discussing BtVS I would have thought they were employing insane Troll logic so you never can tell.
