The genre of drama is comfortably predictable and our brains eat this up because of the pleasure it brings from its symmetry and completion.
Our brains release mood-impacting neurotransmitters such as cortisol, dopamin, and oxytocin whenever we react to the challenges, twists, and happy resolutions of the narrative arc, thus providing an emotionally satisfying journey.
Many popular dramas focus on how relatable the characters are since we all yearn to connect and desire to be loved authentically and unconditionally. For women, the appeal lies in well-written characters with a complex social milieu, because the characters have spunk and are not just objects of beauty.
Dramas also center around the emotional intricacy of human relationships, the ability to overcome challenges, and more.
We are social animals that are more often than not, inherently curious about others. We find out about others by observing their behaviors and seeing how certain decisions pan out.
Works of fiction allow us to be voyeurs and participants emotionally and virtually. We then visualize, sometimes fantasize, the ambience of wealth and royalty because dramas allow us to be members of an exclusive world, for a short period of time.
