Description

';A loving and breezy set of essays' on today's most addictive TV shows from ';an incisive and hilarious critic' (Slate).

Television is not what it once was. Award-winning author and critic Clive James spent decades covering the medium, and witnessed a radical change in content, format, and programming, and in the very manner in which TV is watched.

Here he examines this unique cultural revolution, providing a brilliant, eminently entertaining analysis of many of television's most notable twenty-first-century accomplishments and their not always subtle impact on modern societyincluding such acclaimed serial dramas asBreaking Bad, The West Wing, Mad Men,andThe Sopranosand the comedy30 Rock. With intelligence and wit, James explores a television landscape expanded by cable and broadband and profoundly altered by the advent of Netflix, Amazon, and other cord-cutting platforms that have helped to usher in a golden age of unabashed binge-watching.

';James loves television, he loves the winding stories it tells and that we share them together.Play Allis a late love letter to the medium of our lives.'Sunday Times

';Large-brained and largehearted, and written with astonishing energy.'The New York Times Book Review

';Witty and insightful musing on popular and critically acclaimed series of the past two decades.'Publishers Weekly
