The Vampire Diaries is about outcasts who are living with the challenges of being vampires. The show is popular because it is different and the characters are dark and mysterious giving good plot twists that the audience wouldn’t have seen before.
The Inbetweeners is about a group of four friends who are outsiders in their school. This is so popular because people can relate to the characters and they have more depth to them creating a deeper storyline.
Glee is a show about normal students at a school and the main characters are outcasts that are in the glee club. This is popular because people can relate to them and the show deals with real life issues that they face e.g. alcohol abuse, domestic violence, bullying, teenage pregnancy, sexuality etc. The trademark ‘L’ above the head connotes that they are seen as “losers” by society but do not care and are proud to show it off.
