A new scientific study found that watching "award-winning TV dramas" can make you a better, more empathetic person.
Participants in the study watched dramas such as ‘Mad Men,’ ‘The Good Wife,’ and ‘Lost.’ Others watched non-fiction shows like "Shark Week." They were then shown 36 pairs of eyes and asked to identify the emotion in each pair.
Those who watched the fictionalized dramas did much better on the test.
So next time somebody tells your that TV melts you brain, don’t listen.
