Is SABC 1’s Generations a SITCOM?

Zodwa of Generations

Not because something makes you laugh it automatically turns into a sitcom, yes, Generations make many South Africans go wild with laughter expressed with their tweets and Facebook updates. Does that qualify the soapie as a Sitcom?

A sitcom is a situation comedy, often shortened to sitcom, it is a genre of comedy that features characters sharing the same common environment, such as a home (Skwizas or Family Bonds), it is then accompanied by jokes as part of the dialogue.

It may be recorded in front of a studio audience. The effect of a live studio audience can be also imitated by the use of a laugh sound.

MJ of Generations
The popular SABC 1’s soapie has done well, adding different characters who can show us the talent that Mzansi has, like Zodwa, she’s amazing! As an actress she’s doing well and it is lovely to see a rural girl fighting for a man that she loves, her character represents what most girls would do to keep their hunks locked. Like any girl from the bundus, who would like to be baps by Nic? I mean Zodwa is gifted in the chest too, so any hungry vulture out there would love to get it on with her! 

Also we have to give it up to Mfundi Mvundla for finally representing the Xhosa culture to millions of viewers with dignity and respect. Finally, MJ has also reliazed that he needs to go to initiation school character-wise, we don't know in real life...

On YFM last night Zodwa was the point of discussion by Thabiso Makubela - "Have you ever had a Zodwa in your life? How did you deal with it? Or how would you take care of that situation? 99.2 YFM" It attracted as many comments as possible that showed different views about the character. The discussion was also elevated by callers who shared their thoughts about Zodwa! An interesting one indeed!

Catch Generations on SABC 1 Monday to Friday, 8:30.
