    Platinum reads on occasion like a college textbook but that's probably because author Bianculli is an associate university professor However it's also fairly well researched which is likely due to his journalistic background he's worked at numerous newspapers since the mid 70's in TV criticismWhile not an exhaustive overview on the history of scripted American television shows he focuses on five series in each of the various genres medical legal crime sci fi sit com etc and how things have progressed and sometimes improved since the early 50's into the early 21st centuryAlso notable were the various interviews usually series writer creators but there were actors and directors as well representing a wide array of 'small screen' talent that concluded each chapter

    Who would think reading a book about TV would be fun? I was a little apprehensive when I started reading I have watched most of these shows before whether they be reruns or first time on television David Bianculli a known TV critic wrote about how certain shows lead to or helped create a new world for television watchersThis book is separated into 13 parts or TV genres Within each section there are approximately 5 shows that get a specific look into them but there are also talk of shows that interlink the next to the previous At the end of most sections there is a personal profile of 1 or people that helped to make or expand that particular genreThis book while over 500 pages in my ARC took a while to read I am glad that I did My knowledge of the shows are greatly increased and I have a better understanding of television overallThank you DoubleDay Books and NetGalley for the digital ARC of this book to give my honest opinion

    The Platinum Age of Television An Evolutionary History of uality TV by David Bianculli is a free NetGalley ebook that I read in mid OctoberEpic in scope but with humble clear narration Bianculli groups TV shows together by genre where Peyton Place can mingle freely with Desperate Housewives at last then bookmarks these chapters with biographies of lead actors and TV hosts that are masters in their field It's a giant resource sized undertaking but Bianculli has done well to keep the topic fresh and relevant


  5. says:

    This is a thorough thoughtful book about the evolution of television Arranged by genres it highlights some of the most important programs and spotlights some of the most talented writers Also touches on other lesser programs of the time We got our first television when I was six and I remember afternoons playing board games with the tv on showing the test pattern and hoping a Hopalong Cassidy movie would soon be n I loved this book


  6. says:

    Repeats itself a lot probably so each individual chapter can exist on its own or can be read out of order but when you do read the whole thing and why wouldn't you? the freuent restatement of facts and credits gets a little exhausting particularly after 550 pages Still it's a very thorough and loving evolutionary survey of the history of TV as we currently know it


  7. says:

    This is a Goodreads First Reads reviewThis is a great overall view of how modern television came to be All shows and their creators are organized by category and there is a nice diversity of shows that the author covers with both in depth reviews and smaller segments


  8. says:

    More like reading an encyclopedia of television than a coherent narrative Good in bits and pieces particularly the biographical sketches but not something you read cover to cover with a story line


  9. says:

    Really liked reading this I could definitely hear Bianculli's voice as I was reading since I've heard him for years on NPR's Fresh Air Definitely appreciated reading about important TV broadcasts from the 50s and 60s The only trouble is the list of TV shows I must see is only getting longer

    Workmanlike review of the major influential shows by genre over the seventy plus years of the history of television
