The Emotionally Engaging Character: More on Point of View (Homework Time)

But this is fun homework. 😀

To get another aspect of how point of view works, I am going to send you to a You Tube video.  This is exaggerated, but it helps to illustrate the magic of “point of view”.  Sometimes seeing this in action can help understand the concept of point of view much better.

This scene from the episode of Everybody Loves Raymond called “The Can Opener” is about six minutes long.  The quality isn’t that great, but you can get the gist of what’s going on.  (To see the show in its entirety, you can go to Netflix.  I think it’s in season 4, but I’m not sure.)

If you’re an X-Files fan, the “point of view” angle was tackled in episode “Bad Blood” (Season 5, I think).  It is on Netflix.  I couldn’t find the entire episode on You Tube.
