Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
This is a wonderfully informative and entertaining book!

The author covers the history of television from its early, experimental days right up to the present, with special chapters on such topics as "The Avengers" and the spy cycle of the 1960s, Westerns, "Batman," "Davy Crockett," children's television, The CBS Late Movie and many others.

It's a very thorough and well-researched book, and this is especially evident in the chapters on children's television and Native Americans on television, which are quite brilliant.

It's also a good study of how television shows reflect the times in which they were made, how they can start and influence trends, etc. It explores the sociological as well as the entertainment aspects.

But that doesn't mean it's a dry, difficult read. This book draws the reader in and has a very lively feel to it, as though you were sitting down and talking about television over a cup of coffee with an old friend.
