And should I say sitcom is comedy soap opera or comedy drama?
A famous one in Britain is Eastenders, a show about a large and sometimes brutal east-London commuity.
A drama, I think, is less real-life based (Although soap opera's can be too!). They are usually more action based.
Yes, I would agree that a sitcom is a comedy drama.
Woohoo 1st post!
A soap opera is generally a melodrama. Compared to a drama, the situations and emotions in a melodrama are heightened and exaggerated, and the characters are more likely to be steroetypes.
Sitcom comes from situation comedy, but I am not sure if it is as specifically defined. You probably could get by with saying a sitcom is a comedy soap opera or a comedy drama, though you would be using the meanings loosely and many people would disagree with either of those.
Notably, drama can also be used for real life situations involving interesting or intense conflict.
