How to watch television / edited by Ethan Thompson and Jason Mittell
New York: New York University Press, 2013.
Call No: 67(04) THO Author: Thompson, Ethan; Mittell, Jason Source: US Place: New York Publisher: New York University Press PubDate: 2013 PhysDes: x, 396 pages : illustrations ; 26 cm Subject: AESTHETICS; AUDIENCES; CRITICISM, TV.; CULTURAL IMPERIALISM; FEMINISM AND TV; INDUSTRY, TV.; INDUSTRY, TV. USA; NATIONAL CULTURE AND TV; POLITICS AND TV; YOUTUBE Summary: "We all have opinions about the television shows we watch, but television criticism is about much more than simply evaluating the merits of a particular show and deeming it "good" or "bad". Rather, criticism uses the close examination of a television program to explore that program's cultural significance, creative strategies, and its place in a broader social context. How to Watch Television brings together forty original essays from today's leading scholars on television culture, writing about the programs they care (and think) the most about. Each essay focuses on a particular television show, demonstrating one way to read the program and, through it, our media culture. The essays model how to practice media criticism in accessible language, providing critical insights through analysis - suggesting a way of looking at TV that students and interested viewers might emulate. The contributors discuss a wide range of television programs past and present, covering many formats and genres, broadcast and cable, providing a broad representation of the programs that are likely to be covered in a media studies course. While the book primarily focuses on American television, important programs with international origins and transnational circulation are also covered. Addressing television series from the medium's earliest days to contemporary online transformations of television, How to Watch Television is designed to engender classroom discussion among television critics of all backgrounds." -- BOOK BLURB Notes: Includes index ISBN: 9780814763988 Contents: Acknowledgements -- Introduction: an owner's manual for television: Ethan Thompson and Jason Mittell --; I.

What is the relationship between crime in the real world and the representation of crime on television? What are the merits of TV crime drama as a genre? The TV Crime Drama offers a genealogical account of the television crime drama, from its origins in popular culture of the 19th and 20th century to its most recent manifestations, as a genre enjoying transnational circulation and popularity. Exploring the key features of this genre in terms of format and style, it pays particular attention to the role of the investigators, the police, the private investigators and the specialists in forensic science and psychology, as well as the debates which have circulated about the role and representation of women. Covering classic series such as The Sweeney and Dragnet as well as contemporary crime dramas including The Wire, The Killing and Luther, this book is an essential read for students and scholars in television studies." -- BOOK BLURB Notes: Includes bibliographical references (pages 195-209) and index ISBN: 9780748640874 More info
