I love me some TV friendships. A viewer gets to watch a friendship begin, flourish, suffer, or change for the better over the typical length of a TV show.
Something that I care immensely about in mass media is children’s television. I believe that I was lucky enough to grow up in a Golden Age of children’s entertainment, AKA the late 1990s and early 2000s.
There are some books out there that just would not be the same if they didn’t include a certain setting. A good setting can become an entire character in a very descriptive book. I chose my list of favorite book settings based on how much this place contributes to the plot, how much I wish these places could be real, and how badly I would like to visit them.
