Drama (film and television)

In film and television, drama is a genre of narrative fiction intended to be more serious than humorous in tone. Drama of this kind is qualified with additional terms that specify its particular subgenre, such as "police crime drama", "political drama", "legal drama", "historical drama", "domestic drama", "teen drama" or "comedy-drama"; these terms tend to indicate a particular setting or subject-matter, or else they qualify the otherwise serious tone of a drama with elements that encourage a broader range of moods. All forms of cinema or television that involve fictional stories are forms of drama in the broader sense if their storytelling is achieved by means of actors who represent characters. In this broader sense, drama is a mode distinct from novels, short stories, narrative poetry or songs. In the modern era before the birth of cinema or television, "drama" within theatre was a type of play, neither a comedy nor a tragedy, it is this narrower sense that the television industries, along with film studies, adopted.

"Radio drama" has been used in both senses—originally transmitted in a live performance, it has been used to describe the more high-brow and serious end of the dramatic output of radio. Crime drama, police procedural, legal drama character development based on themes involving criminals, law enforcement and the legal system. Historical drama films that focus on dramatic events in history. Horror drama a film that focuses on imperiled characters dealing with realistic emotional struggles involving dysfunctional family relations, in a horror setting; the film's horror elements serve as a backdrop to an unraveling dramatic plot. Docudrama the difference between a docudrama and a documentary is that in a documentary it uses real people to describe history or current events. Not to be confused with docufiction. Comedy-drama a film in which there is an equal, or nearly equal, balance of humour and serious content. Melodrama a sub-type of drama films that uses plots that appeal to the heightened emotions of the audience.

Melodramatic plots deal with "crises of human emotion, failed romance or friendship, strained familial situations, illness, neuroses, or emotional and physical hardship". Film critics sometimes use the term "pejoratively to connote an unrealistic, pathos-filled, camp tale of romance or domestic situations with stereotypical characters that would directly appeal to feminine audiences". Called "women's movies", "weepies", tearjerkers, or "chick flicks". If they are targeted to a male audience they are called "guy cry" films. Considered "soap-opera" drama. Military drama focuses on the interpersonal and situational crises of characters in the military Romantic drama a sub-type of dramatic film which dwells on the elements of romantic love. Teen drama focuses on teenage characters where a secondary school setting plays a role List of drama films Bourgeois tragedy Domestic tragedy Dramatic structure Soap opera Tragicomedy Sheehan, Helena. 1987.

"A Dark Knight: They Who Hide Behind Masks" received positive reviews from critics. Matt Fowler of IGN gave the episode a "good" 7.8 out of 10 and wrote in his verdict, "'They Who Hide Behind Masks' honed in on Bruce's vigilante tutelage at the hands of Alfred, who encouraged him to not only take on different personas, but to play up a public'spoiled brat' facade to achieve his goals. It worked well thanks to Bruce's commitment and Alfred's savvy advice. Sure, there was some silliness to endure, but overall this was a good outing."Nick Hogan of TV Overmind gav
