Book Description:
The acclaimed critic with 'the eyes and ears to bring the phenomena of culture to life as few other critics can' surveys the landscape of American television. Television has taken firm hold of American life ever since the first flickering images replaced the disembodied voices innocently crackling from the radio. Ever present and evolving, television thrives at the crossroads of commerce, art, and entertainment. In Not Remotely Controlled cultural critic Lee Siegel collects his reportage and musings on this most hybrid medium. Whether chronicling the history of the 'cop' drama, revealing the inherent irony in Donald Trump's character on 'The Apprentice,' or shedding light on those unheralded gems that Neilsen ratings swept away prematurely, Siegel gives each episode, series, or documentary the attention and respect usually reserved for high art and dusty literature. Going far beyond mere pans and praise, Siegel has given long overdue attention to America's most pervasive art form: television.
