  1. Among those you listed, only a soap opera is considered drama. Movies, law enforcement or medical series, mysteries -- these are also considered drama. Anything that has a plot (intro, problem, rising action, resolution) is considered drama.

    The others are in their own genres!

  2. Well, a comedy show could be considered drama -- if it has a plot, not just a stand-up comic telling jokes!
