Overview

This unique study offers a comprehensive and invaluable account of television from the perspective of the programs themselves. From I Love Lucy to The Simpsons, from The Twilight Zone to The X Files, from the moon landing to the events of September 11, the book chronicles some of the most fascinating and influential shows and global events ever to hit the small screen. Each entry will offer a basic guide to the history of the show, its textual and thematic context, and its critical and popular reception, while also explaining and frequently reconsidering ways in which it may have been analyzed in the past.
