"Flow TV brings together a wide array of scholars to provocatively interrogate the sprawling and converging world of televisual media culture. Both celebrating new potentials of the digital age, and acting as a canary in the gemeinschaft, the book dramatizes why critical media studies matters now more than ever."--Matthew Jordan, Pennsylvania State University
"The essays in this collection offer exciting, but level-headed analyses of television at the beginning of the 21st century. Together, they offer wonderful tributes, extensions, and complications of Raymond Williams' concept of 'flow,' analyzing television's still developing technology and cultural form without simply embracing the hype of the 'digital age'."--Brenton J. Malin, University of Pittsburgh
