I didn't know this was a subject that focuses entirely on lifestyle television (the subject should probably be called Lifestyle Television & Consumer Culture instead), but it was a really interesting and engaging subject. We focused on a different lifestyle show each week, and we watched a lot of clips in lectures and tutorials so we got a pretty good understanding of each show. The assignments were not too bad but they required a lot of knowledge of theoretical concepts such as neoliberalism and cultural capital, which are the kinds of thing they refer to throughout the semester but you don't quite know what they actually mean and the initial readings you did on those topics don't give you a clear enough definition.
