The Sitcom - Similarities between Ourselves and the Characters

Situation comedy or sitcom is a kind of comedy radio and television programs, with the permanent main characters and place of action. Originally appearing on radio in the US from the 1920s to the 1970s sitcom excelled in the genre of comedy and become almost exclusive television program. It is widespread in the television series.

All television sitcoms are characterized by a certain time frame - usually 20-30 minutes, including titles and publicity (if there is any).

The first sitcoms were usually filmed in special studios in front of the audience, so they are characterized by laugh track.

Traditionally, series have very little connection between themselves in the sitcom. Characters remain virtually unchanged throughout the series. Most sitcoms adhere to this format. Occasionally there are dual series; school friends or favorite relatives can appear out of nowhere and disappear into nowhere; there are also many fails, which often present in various scenes.

The sitcoms are often parody or use elements of a soap opera. Soap opera elements are found even in the "Friends", such as the continuation of story lines for a long time. It occurs in many sitcoms such as "Daddy's Daughters" or in “The Beverly Hillbillies”.

The public aspect of family sitcoms is that sooner or later the family should see the child. The exception is with Bob Newhart sitcom (Bob Newhart).

Many family and office sitcoms used multiple camera shooting technique that is shooting scenes with multiple cameras and the subsequent installation. But with the 60s` situational comedy began to be filmed with a single camera.

Another characteristic of sitcoms is a laugh track. However, in such sitcoms as "My Name is Earl," "It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia" and "Office" laugh track is not used, and the comedy "Arrested Development" it is used only partially.

To say the truth there many differences between real life and stage life in sitcoms and it is mainly related with the positive and comical character of sitcoms. In reality our life is more complicated and difficult than in sitcoms and we cannot see everything from the positive and light point of view. Also sitcoms show many aspects of our life in satirical way, trying to exaggerate some aspects. The life in sitcoms is brighter and easy that causes more relaxed of the characters to the problems. But sitcoms it is a tool to show some everyday problems of modern people.
