The Revolution Was Televised

What a fun book this was. (Thanks, Ken, for turning me on to it.) A smart critic shows you, show by show, why The Sopranos, The Wire, Breaking Bad, and Deadwood are so good, interspersing the criticism with stories of the shows’ creation.

He makes a surprisingly good case for the brilliance of Buffy the Vampire Slayer and makes me pretty curious about the Shield. I skipped the chapter on Lost: I’ll never watch it.
