Also, I think people believe artists to have more power than they actually do. You can only write what you want. In fact you must only write what you want. That isn't the problem. The problem is that only certain people get to write what they want. The problem isn't the Lena Dunham show is about a narrow world. The problem is that there aren't more narrow worlds on the screen. Broader is not synonymous with better.
It's been very disconcerting, as I grew up watching The Cosby Show, A Different World, and The Fresh Prince, to see how easily modern TV has slipped into tokenism or 'ironic' racism.
