9780300218091: Play All: A Bingewatcher’s Notebook

A world-renowned media and cultural critic offers an insightful analysis of serial TV drama and the modern art of the small screen

Television and TV viewing are not what they once were—and that’s a good thing, according to award-winning author and critic Clive James. Since serving as television columnist for the London Observer from 1972 to 1982, James has 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 the medium’s most notable twenty-first-century accomplishments and their not always subtle impact on modern society—including such acclaimed serial dramas as Breaking Bad, The West Wing, Mad Men, and The Sopranos, as well as the comedy 30 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.

Book Description:

In this enlightening, entertaining analysis, an esteemed media and social critic takes readers on a fascinating journey through the twenty-first century’s ever-expanding television landscape and explores how quality TV programming like The West Wing, The Sopranos, and Breaking Bad has influenced modern society and created a vast audience of unabashed bingewatchers.

From the Author:

In the early 1970s you more or less invented serious (if incredibly clever and funny) criticism of television. What accounts for our current golden age of TV drama?
The golden age of long-form television has probably happened because somebody proved it was possible and everyone else piled in. Let's hope it's a great new city, but it could be the Klondike.
 
Is binge-watching especially enjoyable with others?
Binge-watching is only possible with others. Try it on your own and you'll end up talking to yourself: "Josh, Josh, you schmuck! Donna is telling you she loves you!"

What actor in the history of the movies would you most like to see do a turn in a small-screen serial drama?
Watch Carole Lombard and John Barrymore in Twentieth Century and you'll immediately realize that what these two need is about fifty more episodes. If Janice Rule could be here now to star in The Good Wife's Best Friend, she would be the most famous actor in the world.

Praise for Latest Readings:

"Pick up Latest Readings. It’s wonderful."—Michael Dirda, Washington Post
 
“For the literature-obsessed, this slim volume is a delectable gift, a reminder of why one reads at all, especially when the mortal countdown timer is ticking loudly. And it proves that James is the rare literary critic who can speak deeply to a general audience, with a sense of humor and levity that suggests that high art can indeed be for everyone.”— NPR Books
 
“This book possesses an undercurrent of brave, unsentimental reflection; the author is intermittently philosophical and, in the face of death, funny.”—Thomas Swick, Weekly Standard
