Television Criticism presents an original treatment of television criticism with a foundational approach to the nature of criticism, an understanding of the business of television, production background in creating television style, in-depth chapters on storytelling and narrative theories and television genres, the interaction of rhetoric and cultural studies theories, representation, and postmodernism. It presents new and comprehensive guidelines for analysis and criticism, and it has a sample critique of the television program "CSI: Crime Scene Investigation."

Product Description

Review

"College-level collections strong in film and television will find Television Criticism a welcome addition to the collection: it explores the business, production and entertainment aspects of the TV industry and the critical rhetoric, culture and representation surrounding it, offering a range of analytical styles for past and current TV programs in different genres. Students receive a variety of formulas for developing critical thinking about television, and are provided everything they need to develop such perspectives, from new guidelines for television analysis to insights from producers and business people working in the field. Television Criticism is not only recommended for library acquisition but will also make a fine course supplement -- perhaps even serve as a basic text." -- James A. Cox 20070621
