Television has changed drastically over the past decade. What started out as a single box that played a couple dozen shows a day has turned into a cultural staple in every household. Everything from the way it is watched to the shows aired today are completely different. But one fact stays the same: television connects everyone on so many social, emotional, cultural, and historical levels. Today television is watched more on computers and tablets than the good old tube itself. There are millions of shows out there on all different channels. Yet, with so many options, I still cannot find what to watch. Tube is here to solve that problem. With the use of TV tropes you will be able to create your own path from what interests you. Many platforms like Netflix, for example, only suggest shows you should watch based only on the genera and subject topics from previous shows you have viewed. For example, If I watch Scandal, the only shows that I will get in my suggestion box is other government shows and dramas. I am not interested in that at all, the reason I love Scandal is because of the love triangles, the aspiration to be just as kick ass as Olivia, the family drama, and the situations that make you question your own morals and values. I want you to not explore TV, but be able to dive deeper and get meaningful suggestions based on what actually draws you in or connects you to a TV show.
