Just the beginning

For my project, I would like to explore the show Beyond Scared Straight.  It first aired in January 2011, on A&E.

According to MSN Entertainment, this show is: “Based on the multiple award-winning documentary “Scared Straight!” from executive producer Arnold Shapiro, “Beyond Scared Straight,” much like the original, profiles unique juvenile crime prevention programs in prisons across the U.S.  Each hour long episode follows a handful of at-risk teenagers as they attend a program, which includes an intensive one-day session in a prison.  A month later, the teens are asked what, if any, lasting impressions the program had on them.”

I am still not 100% sure on how I want to analyze the show.  I might look into why society would find such a show entertaining.  Or I might investigate marketing techniques and product placement.

This site is a work in progress…so stay tuned for sporadic updates!
