Class TV …

… The American Scholar: Talking Television - Paula Marantz Cohen.

The appearance of realism that TV generates can make the melodramatic scenario seem like the everyday one, creating unwarranted skepticism about institutions and social systems. I wonder how the representation of politics and government in shows like House of Cards, Boss, and Homelandmay affect some viewers.
In my view, the more doubt they sow across party lines the better. But then, about the only thing I watch on TV is the ball game.
