Thickening the Plot.
Rose, Brian
Journal of Communication, v29 n4 p81-84 Fall 1979
Examines the content of daytime serial dramas to determine how the narrative structure promotes a sense of involvement in viewers. Competing plot lines, the lack of a concrete sense of resolution, the pattern of episodes, and the audience's awareness of information kept secret from characters all contribute to audience involvement.
