Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"Ross's stance is academic, but she also considers the stance of fans, producers, creators and marketers. Together, these voices combine to create a new understanding of the connectedness of all parties in the process of telling stories, both authorised and unauthorised." (Science Fiction Film and Television, July 2010)

"Couch potato television students worldwide will gain immensely from Beyond the Box: Television and the Internet, an articulate examination of what it means to watch television in this era of profound technological change … .This book is an exciting example of what happens when an academic, spurred on by a passion, throws caution to the wind and mixes things up." (M/C Reviews: Culture & Media, January 2009)
