Do you love TV? Television is a unique and fascinating part of American art history. It speaks to our changing culture in a vibrant and present way. This class offers a chance to view TV in a new way, with a critical eye and a particular emphasis on revolutionary, game-changing entries into the American TV catalog from the last fifty years. Using a context of genre and sub-genre classifications in weekly screenings, we'll survey examples of landmark episodes and shows, learn what these pieces meant in a contemporary context, and discuss what resonance they still have in current television and the changing cultural climate.
