Bari Pasternack — The Honeymooners

I had never heard of The Honeymooners before this class. However, I found it easy to watch due to the similarities between this show and others we have watched. It was interesting to see how it compared to I Love Lucy as well as how they compared to shows today. When reading the chapter I was intrigued by how money was prioritized and portrayed. It was interesting to learn how much weight was put on the ability to partake in recreational activities. It seems that in shows nowadays put a lot of emphasis on the material objects rather than on the simple things like bowling (which in those times were not so simple but rather a large outing). I was also interested to see how they differentiate by a women’s wealth and a mans. It wasn’t about who owned or paid for what. It was about who uses what. For example, the household products belonged to the wife. Those were her goods. Her value of worth.

  1. I really enjoyed the Honeymooners as well! Can you compare it to any other current shows that are on television? Or any characters that remind you of characters in our day and age? — Sam Beckerman

    I would compare it to Mom…though I don’t watch it regularly. Not a lot of working class characters on TV even today…
