TV Is Gooder Than We Think

The Aesthitics of Failure by Jason Mitchell
 from the Velvet Light Trap
An academic read for sure but just the preview alone makes light of an interesting idea, an opinion that fans of Sherlock, Mad Men, Breaking Bad, etc. have been saying for awhile: there are many well written and produced television programs out there in this day and age, more so than we probably are aware of.  

And that's amazing considering how sink or swim the television industry is.
