This book is a great idea in theory...,
By A Customer
This review is from: Gen X TV: The Brady Bunch to Melrose Place (Television and Popular Culture) (Hardcover)
I loved the idea of this book. I love TV and Owen is an outstanding TV writer (for a good sample, read his column on-line). The book has some interesting ideas, but the book gets dull. It breaks no new ground and doesn't shed light on others. I liked the fact that it wasn't steeped in the usual "media criticism", but there is no depth to much of the book. I think Owen will write a great book on TV one day...he just isn't there yet.
