Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I used this text as a source for my Master's Thesis. Although I found it gave plenty of information regarding older sitcoms, it was limited by those of I Love Lucy, Roseanne, etc. It doesn't give very much basic information on feminist media theory, instead it takes a Stuart Hall cultural critique-esque approach to analyze the images of women in certain television shows. However, the number of texts that you can get from the authors' listings of sources is very rich. I intially purchased this book because of previous article readings I had done by Julie D'Acci. The text at whole is very long, but broken down into articles could be very helpful for media theory classrooms.
