Honestly, I loved reading this book so I can talk about it and write papers and blog posts based on this theory. It’s a little densely written, but I really like this stuff and I liked reading about it.
Dec 17, Sarah rated it really liked it Shelves: It was cool to think about TV shows in the context of film studies.
