TV show genres
Watching your old favorite shows can be fun, but it's always nice to try something new. Zeroing in on the right shows to watch can be a challenge when there's so much great TV on offer. While shopping for new TV shows you've never seen before, it can be helpful to shop by genre. Genres will give you a general overview of the mood and tone of the show and can help you determine whether the show is appropriate for young children or not.
Drama: Drama TV shows focus on a high level of emotion and excitement, which can come in the form of suspense, mystery, action or social tension between characters. Some dramatic TV shows focus on historical time periods, while others focus on a sensational version of life in the present day. Mad Men and Downton Abbey are examples of historical dramas, while shows like CSI and Law & Order focus on drama in the present day. Dramatic TV series usually run about an hour per episode and are often either inappropriate or not fast-paced enough for children.Comedy: When you're in the mood for something lighthearted and funny, comedy TV is the way to go. Comedy shows include some family-friendly classics like I Love Lucy and some edgier, adults-only modern shows like Silicon Valley. Most comedy TV shows are a half-hour long, but some comedy TV, like stand-up comedy specials, can run longer.Animation: Also known as cartoons, many animated TV shows are aimed at children, but there's also plenty of animation, like South Park or Family Guy, that's aimed at adults. This TV show category can also include animated TV shows from Japan known as anime, which are usually most appropriate for older children and adults. Most of the TV shows available for very young children and toddlers are found in this category, which usually includes episodes that run for a half hour or less but can include some longer made-for-TV movies or specials.Sci-Fi and fantasy: Science fiction, aka sci-fi, and fantasy are two of the most imaginative TV genres. They look into fictional futures and imaginary pasts to tell stories that usually have a dramatic focus but can be funny. Star Trek is perhaps the most iconic sci-fi TV show, while shows like Game of Thrones and The Twilight Zone represent the fantasy genre. Some fantasy shows, like Buffy the Vampire Slayer, take place in the present day. The shows in this genre focus on magical or alien elements and usually run for at least an hour.
TV show formats
Streaming through Walmart is an option for TV viewers focused on new media, but if you still prefer to have a physical copy of the shows you love, DVDs and Blu-rays are the best option. These disc media formats offer high picture quality, reliable playback and easy functionality that even kids can operate on their own. TV show DVDs and Blu-rays come in a variety of different formats.
Multi-disc season sets: TV shows run in groups known as seasons. Shows that run for just a short period of time may get only one season, but those that run for many years can have multiple seasons. Some shows have different themes in different seasons, and fans may find themselves gravitating to one particular season to watch more than any of the others. If you're just starting to watch a show or there's one season you like better than any others, a TV show season set may be the right choice for you. Because seasons usually include more than five episodes, season sets usually have multiple discs and come in a package that holds them all together for easy storage.
Complete series box sets: Complete series box sets are the perfect way to keep every single episode of your favorite show on hand for viewing whenever you feel like binge-watching through the entire show. This category of TV show DVD and Blu-ray may include special-edition box sets that have behind-the-scenes-footage and other special features you won't get through streaming in addition to each episode of the show.
Single discs: Single-disc TV show DVDs and Blu-rays usually include special episodes that are longer than an hour or collections of episodes around a specific theme. For example, you may be able to buy one disc with all the Christmas episodes of your favorite show.
