MEDIA REVIEWS

'Two decades ago the idea of a world television culture seemed unlikely; the medium's range, influence, and genres were largely local and national. The appearance of a book like Television Drama: Form, Agency, Innovation by Trisha Dunleavy, a preeminent scholar of the small screen in her native New Zealand, stands as an index of a new global unity in its examination of seminal British and American programming. In a careful, discerning, erudite but accessible study of drama in a variety of forms, Dunleavy does more than just bridge boundaries and splice key series and shows; she brings the television she knows so well to life on the page, transforming TV texts into words and ideas, giving us a book as smart and multi-faceted as the contemporary medium itself.' - David Lavery, Co-Founding Editor of Critical Studies in Television: Scholarly Studies for Small Screen Fictions
