Though all know of the realistic father who works the nine to five with consistency, mows the lawn with precision, and provides for his family with care, the televised father portrays this image in a rather opposite light. While both George Lopez of The George Lopez Show (Borden, Helford, Lopez, etc., 2002) and real-life fathers receive harsh criticism and

The Chosen makes it quite clear that Danny has a brilliant mind. So brilliant, in fact that Reuven’s father calls him “a phenomenon.” “Once in a generation is a mind born like that.” (110) Danny’s photographic memory and instant recall allow him to have a

Her father was more of an intense version of my own father. In our family I am always my father’s favorite, the one that stood by him through everything. We are playful together and he wants to give me everything even when he can’t. He always wants to be the one to take care of me not the other way around and he’s extremely stubborn, cocky and loves talking about himself. He also always loved my mother even though when they were still married they would fight constantly and the amount of beers he can throw back can always amaze me, but other than that he is mostly the good parts of Rex Walls.
