Tonight, Showtime debuts the second season of This American Life, the television version of the long-running radio show which is one of my weekly podcast downloads. Each week, the program (whether on television or radio) selects a topic and features one or more story exploring some aspect of that topic. This week’s television topic is “Escape”, and here’s the summary from the TAL web site (www.thisamericanlife.org):

People escaping home without going very far away. In Philadelphia, teenaged boys find ways to impress girls and break out of the confines of their families, using technology that’s been obsolete in their neighborhood since the 19th Century. And a mother and son get caught up in a fight that lots of kids have with their parents. Except in their case, due to some very specialized circumstances, they go through the fight in slow motion, over the course of years.
