  • Finding words: Aesthetic criticism and television

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Authors: James Walters
      Abstract: Critical Studies in Television, Ahead of Print.
      Those endorsing or opposing the development of television aesthetics scholarship have exhibited an admirable willingness to reflect upon the rationales and motivations for formulating value judgements. However, very little equivalent attention has been afforded to processes that occur within this area: how scholars conduct analysis and develop claims for achievement in television. In addressing this lack, the following article surveys some of the meanings that ‘criticism’ has encompassed in Television Studies, offering ‘aesthetic criticism’ as a useful term to describe the work of analysis and evaluation, before moving to a series of close readings of aesthetic criticism in practice.

  • Netflix, Spanish television, and La casa de papel: Growing global and
           local TV together in the multiplatform era

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Authors: Gary Edgerton
      Abstract: Critical Studies in Television, Ahead of Print.
      This institutional-industrial analysis evaluates how Netflix’s post-2016 rebranding efforts resulted in its ongoing transition from a centrally-managed multinational corporation, based mainly in Silicon Valley, to a more decentralised transnational operation with multiple interconnected headquarters worldwide. Utilising a blended macro-micro critical perspective, Netflix’s October 2015 debut in Spain is examined as an inflection point for this subscription video on demand (SVOD) change agent, Spain’s then-traditional TV infrastructure and the transnational television industry. Netflix’s eventual integration into the Spanish television landscape and its transnational distribution of La casa de papel/Money Heist (2017–2021) serve as a two-fold object lesson into how glocal relations occur during TVIV.

  • Government public relations, audiovisual communication and the
           informalisation of Sweden

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Authors: Emil Stjernholm
      Abstract: Critical Studies in Television, Ahead of Print.
      This article addresses the role of television as a ‘new media’ in government public relations. Drawing on sociological theories on informalisation, this study analyses three features of the Swedish public information programme Anslagstavlan during the 1970s and 1980s: first, formal techniques such as editing, pacing and use of animations; second, narrative strategies including the utilisation of celebrity advertising and intertextuality; and last, the rhetoric of public information. The study shows that the engineering of informality was a key communication strategy for government agencies and that televised information contributed to the conversationalisation and personalisation of government agencies’ communication in medium-specific ways.

  • On the harsh realities of researching television in Poland: Traditions,
           obstacles and perspectives

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Authors: Sylwia Szostak
      Abstract: Critical Studies in Television, Ahead of Print.
      Television studies in Poland has not yet been recognized as an academic discipline in its own right. Despite this obvious omission in the institutional division of academic fields, Polish researchers have been studying television: its texts, audiences and history. This aerial review aims to present the main intellectual traditions that influenced academic writing of Polish scholars on the topic of television, both domestic and imported. This focus on research conducted by Polish scholars, and written mainly in Polish, allows for an examination of the body of work that is otherwise inaccessible to Anglo-American researchers due to the language barrier. Local academic debates are presented in a way that reflects the main disciplinary criteria of Anglo-American television studies, allowing for a clear organization of what is a substantial amount of literature. Additionally, this review aims to give a sense of what it is like to study television in an environment where TV criticism and analysis are not granted the status of an academic discipline. The consideration of the broader context for Polish studies on television allows for a thorough understanding of this academic field, its focus, main methodologies, challenges and its way forward.

      Authors: Noa Lavie
      Abstract: Critical Studies in Television, Ahead of Print.
      This study investigates how the concept of ‘quality TV’ is evolving in the age of streaming video on demand (SVOD) platforms, using reviews of two Israeli TV series on Netflix – Fauda and Shtisel. In accordance with Pierre Bourdieu’s view of journalistic reviewers as social agents and intermediaries with the power to enshrine cultural artifacts in an artistic canon, the study is based on a qualitative analysis of reviews of these two series published on major Anglo-American journalistic platforms. The analysis shows how the reviewers take part in constructing the Netflix brand of ‘a ‘foreign-language quality TV’ series.

  • Post-Nordic-Noir landscapes: Competition through localisation in Finnish
           streaming media

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Authors: Sanna Wicks, Pietari Kääpä
      Abstract: Critical Studies in Television, Ahead of Print.
      This article discusses the ways locality and sense of place are used in the production and promotion of streaming media from small nations. We concentrate on location-related decisions behind Man in Room 301 (2019), a Finnish thriller series produced by VOD service Elisa Viihde Viaplay. While locality acts as a significant tool for Nordic Noir, a genre of film and TV characterised by a distinct ‘localised’ style, this article explores how the Finnish streaming industry is progressing towards a ‘post-Nordic-noir’ framework, a direction that focuses on an intense sense of place, both on the level of representation and production-related decisions.

      Authors: Anders Grønlund
      Abstract: Critical Studies in Television, Ahead of Print.
      The Swedish/Icelandic co-produced serial Tunn is (Thin Ice, 2020) offers an insight into current possibilities and challenges of production in the Nordic Arctic region and the involvement of the developing Greenlandic screen industry. By analysing both off- and on-screen elements through a broad screen industry and location-driven approach, the explorative case study illustrates both a region and a screen industry in development as well as changing production practices. Furthermore, the article highlights the perceived value of location and cultural specificity in high-end TV drama from the multi-ethnic and multi-lingual Arctic region.

  • Medicalized reality weight-loss television and the negotiation of

      Authors: Melissa Zimdars
      Abstract: Critical Studies in Television, Ahead of Print.
      On their surface, medicalised reality television series about food addiction and fatness seem to reinforce the same discourses of neoliberalism that have come to define our understanding of contemporary reality TV. However, this article considers how one of these shows, My 600 Pound Life (2012), negotiates and de-centres discourses of neoliberalism through medicalisation and spectacle. The bodies and behaviours on medicalised reality TV programmes can be engendering of sympathy as much or more than of discipline and shame, which reflects expanding and shifting narratives of the ‘obesity epidemic’.

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Authors: Balázs Boross
      Abstract: Critical Studies in Television, Ahead of Print.
      Interventional reality programmes often give rise to speculations about how they treat their contributors. However, little is known about the actual production practices that lie behind these complex and often contradictory media texts. Based on in-depth interviews with crew members of a variety of popular formats, this article explores how ordinary people are turned into subjects of emancipation and spectacular transformations. By analysing the ideals, tactics and constraints characterising this process, I address how particular discursive and organisational mechanisms support or hinder morally viable compromises in situations where the imperative of ‘selling strong performances’ and personal standpoints come into conflict.

  • ‘Make sense of it’: Cult and complex TV fandoms, post-Truth discourse
           and an excess of meaning in Twin Peaks: Season 3

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Authors: Michael Waugh
      Abstract: Critical Studies in Television, Ahead of Print.
      The excess of mystery and ‘meaning’ in Twin Peaks: Season 3 (2017) reflects the post-truth ontological dissonance of information overload, tantalising the thirst for answers that dominates digital communication. Combining its clues and codes with payoffs for ‘long-term fan investments’ (Hills, 2020: 197) situates the series between two modes of fan participation: the curative puzzle-solving of complex ‘Quality TV’, and cult television’s ‘hyperdiegesis’. Season 3 is complex cult television, encouraging forensic and creative engagement. Replicating the polarisation of contemporary discourse while simultaneously promoting algorithmic literacy informs Mark Frost’s politicised vision for Twin Peaks, and David Lynch’s aesthetic experiments amplify this.

      Authors: Axelle Asmar, Tim Raats, Leo Van Audenhove
      Abstract: Critical Studies in Television, Ahead of Print.
      Since 2020, Netflix has emphasised the diversity of representation the platform provides through its content. Following the publication of its diversity report, the streamer positions itself as a driver of inclusion for underrepresented communities in film and television industries. This article examines how Netflix rhetorically frames the emphasis on diversity in its corporate communication. Based on a thematic analysis of Netflix’s press releases, it explores how Netflix uses its branding of diversity to generate a transnational appeal. The article outlines four strategies which highlight the cultural and industrial practices deployed by the streamer to gain competitive advantages.

      Authors: Alexa Scarlata
      Abstract: Critical Studies in Television, Ahead of Print.
      Netflix’s status as a personalised service has been central to its business proposition and brand. However, recent changes to include community-based metrics within the user interface – such as the 2020 addition of a national top 10 feature – denote a shift in corporate strategy from personalisation to communal discovery. This article uses a critical communications and media industry studies approach to consider both the data being produced by the top 10 ranking and the broader industrial function of the list, especially within a longer history of audience measurement.

      Authors: Trisha Dunleavy
      Abstract: Critical Studies in Television, Ahead of Print.
      Small Axe, a series of five films, has brought innovation and prestige to TV drama not only for its overdue history of Caribbean migrant experiences in post-war Britain but also for its transformative representations of Black British people. The article examines three areas of the Small Axe production and text in recognition of their importance to these achievements: its creative genesis as a TV drama inspired by the under-representation of Britain’s Caribbean diaspora; the opportunities it gained as a BBC commission and Amazon co-production; and the indicators and outcomes of its deployment of the four ‘markers’ of Third Cinema textuality.

  • Banal Koreanness: National imagery in multicultural-themed television

      Authors: Felicia Istad, Min Jung Kim, Nathaniel Ming Curran
      Abstract: Critical Studies in Television, Ahead of Print.
      This article analyses how three South Korean multicultural-themed reality television programmes discursively produce Koreanness. We ground our study in scholarship on ‘othering’ and the notion of banal nationalism (Billig, 1995) and conduct a thematic analysis of the shows. Our findings show that the programmes adopt a Korea-foreign dichotomy that becomes a lens through which viewers can vicariously experience the existence of a unified South Korean culture. We argue that the juxtaposition of a Korean ‘us’ against a foreign ‘them’ precludes imagining a more pluralistic South Korea – even as the programmes ostensibly celebrate South Korea’s increasing diversity.

      Authors: Iveta Jansová, Alena Macková, Charles M Elavsky, Jakub Macek
      Abstract: Critical Studies in Television, Ahead of Print.
      In the context of constantly changing media communication and the behavior of different actors engaging it, our paper seeks to map current transformations and adaptations to changes within Czech audiences with a special interest in their media routines and strategies for choosing media sources. As it still remains rather unclear how the post-televisual audience members decide regarding content sources, platforms or services, our main aim is to discover on what basis audiences decide to use or avoid either illegal or non-authorized content sources or legal or paid services. To do so, we examined two datasets, namely semi-structured interviews with audiences and survey on Czech adult population. As the Czech industry media market is rather small and conservative with notable changes in online sector largely occurring within the last five years, Czech audiences represent an important and unique population for the study of differences between paying and non-paying post-televisual audiences.

      Authors: Will Stanford Abbiss
      Abstract: Critical Studies in Television, Ahead of Print.
      This article examines the CBC/Netflix co-production Anne with an E (2017–19), a leading example of cross-platform co-production whose legacy is disrupted by the drama’s unexpected cancellation. Theories of cultural and media imperialism are discussed to contextualise this circumstance, along with an overview of the Canadian media policy context. The relationship between the CBC’s public service model and Netflix’s subscription service is considered, followed by an analysis of the increased cultural representation of the drama, which incorporates Black, queer and Indigenous identities. The article concludes by suggesting what Anne with an E’s cancellation may mean for the future of cross-platform co-productions.

  • Memory, remembrance and nostalgia in Ken Burns’ The Vietnam War

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Authors: Paul Cornelius, Douglas Rhein
      Abstract: Critical Studies in Television, Ahead of Print.
      This essay examines how society and culture constructs differing responses to memory and remembrance in producing documentary series that look back at the American War in Indochina. Drawing upon studies of memory, nostalgia, and remembrance, the primary focus is on the recent documentary series directed by Ken Burns and Lynn Novick, The Vietnam War. That series can be seen as a remembrance rather than an example of historical memory. The essay provides a close analysis, therefore, of The Vietnam War and compares it, in particular, to an earlier series, Vietnam: The Ten Thousand Day War. Also under discussion are documentaries contemporary with the war, In the Year of the Pig and Hearts and Minds. What ultimately can be seen is a shift from active memory and advocacy in human behavior and perspective within the contemporaneous documentaries to an institutionalized construct focusing on remembrance and nostalgia in The Vietnam War.

  • TV drama production studios of Istanbul: From empty sound stages to
           standing sets

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Authors: Sezen Kayhan
      Abstract: Critical Studies in Television, Ahead of Print.
      This study explores the transformation of production spaces from empty sound stages to standing sets, drawing on the findings from fieldwork involving 14 key players; studio owners and managers, screenwriters and art directors. The sets containing standing decors of hospital rooms, police stations, jails and courtrooms, transformed from abandoned factories, warehouses and administrative buildings in Istanbul, mostly lack proper infrastructure and appropriate security measures. Examining their transformation shows that the demanded and repeated storylines of the Turkish TV series also shape these locations and create a cheap and fast studio system based on supply and demand, putting creativity and security of the crews into question. The research also aims to contribute to the critical debate about the production studies focusing solely on the means of production and excluding the text and the audience, with showing the need for a more comprehensive approach. In order to apprehend the intertwined relationship between production, representation and consumption, this study examines the links between the formation of the production spaces, the content of the TV series and the ratings.

      Authors: Josefine B Siem
      Abstract: Critical Studies in Television, Ahead of Print.
      Scholars of crime fiction continuously discuss what Nordic Noir series have in common, arguing that it is a genre, a brand and a style respectively. Instead, this article explores Nordic Noir as an atmosphere, observed through the concept of stimmung, and argues that affective world-building in TV-series should be analysed beyond matters of style and narrative. Based on an analysis of The Bridge (2011–2018), the article discusses the aesthetic and critical potentialities of attuning oneself to the melancholic world of Nordic Noir and demonstrates that the affective quality of a series impacts how its themes can be read.

      Abstract: Critical Studies in Television, Ahead of Print.
      This paper analyses the way in which traditional broadcasters are reorienting their strategy to reach young audiences. From this starting point, we analyse the three specific offers launched very recently by Spain's leading audio-visual groups for youth audiences. The online platforms constitute an attempt to compete with the new internet-distributed video offerings that are gaining increasing ground across the world. These platforms (Flooxer from Atresmedia, MTMAD from Mediaset and PLAYZ from TVE) have contributed to the adaptation of their company groups to the new environment in order to get closer to this hard-to-reach young audience.

      This article outlines and examines the role comedy and entertainment have played at the BBC in constructing a sense of national identity both in the UK and overseas. It demonstrates the ways in which UK national identities are intertwined with ideas of a sense of humour, and the extent to which this is a performative act. Beginning with a historical approach, the article shows how the BBC, over time, has employed comedy as a way to evidence particularities of UK national identities, and the importance of the organisation in contributing to this.

      Abstract: Critical Studies in Television, Ahead of Print.
      This article discusses the important role the BBC played in advancing the careers of ABC women in the post-war era. Adopting an integrated, transnational approach, it revisualises the British broadcasting empire from a dominion perspective, a gendered perspective. This research follows ABC television producers as they undertook transformative, transnational excursions and recognises the necessary mobility, flexibility and ingenuity women activated in order to succeed. It identifies how they exploited the imbalanced dominion dynamic and strategically used their BBC experiences to counteract the compromising gender constraints of their local production environments.

  • BBC Africa Eye and changing perceptions of western media among Nigerian

      Abstract: Critical Studies in Television, Ahead of Print.
      Although the dominant narrative among Africans is that Western media portray Africa in a one-sided and negative way, this belief is being challenged as a result of the intervention of the BBC’s Africa Eye documentaries. Although the series focuses on the dark side of Africa, it succeeds in revealing, in great detail, hidden stories about Africa, particularly Nigeria, of which many citizens were ignorant. As such, negative coverage may help to correct social anomalies and chart a way forward for correcting them. This development is a game-changer that has restored Nigerian audiences' confidence in Western media.

  • A perspective on BBC television news in India

      Authors: Ruchi Kher Jaggi, Sushobhan Patankar
      First page: 392
      Abstract: Critical Studies in Television, Ahead of Print.
      This provocation gives an overview of the BBC in India in terms of television news. It discusses the BBC's sensibilities in relation to the interests and perceptions of Indian audiences through two methods: one, a review of available secondary literature; and two, brief conversations with media professionals who have previously or currently work with the BBC in India. It briefly comments on the conflicting journey of the BBC in India but argues that despite the colonial legacy and the initial narrative of privileging the imperial voice, the BBC is largely viewed as a fair and impartial news source by Indian audiences.

  • History and Place in Television Drama: Liverpool in Cilla and Boys From
           the Blackstuff

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Authors: Cat Mahoney
      First page: 397
      Abstract: Critical Studies in Television, Ahead of Print.
      This article explores historical representations of Liverpool in two television dramas: ITV’s Cilla (2014) and the BBC’s Boys from the Blackstuff (1982). It is concerned with the ways that television drama can both record and recreate places from the past. Focussing on two dramas set in Liverpool at formative moments in the city’s past, it considers the centrality of an evocation of place and specifically the space of the city to both series and the ways that television dramas that mobilise such a strong sense place can become intrinsic to the heritage and history of the places they depict.

  • Where did you go'! Trans-diegetic address and formal innovation in
           Phoebe Waller-Bridge’s television series Fleabag

      Authors: Anna Wilson

      Abstract: Critical Studies in Television, Ahead of Print.
      The article examines formal innovation, authorship and representation within Phoebe Waller-Bridge’s television series Fleabag (2016–2019). Through close examination of the developed use of direct address within the programme, in particular two key moments of trans-diegetic address, the analysis considers how, contrary to ontological assumptions, the adaptation of the theatrical ‘aside’, when converted for screen, can function to support, strengthen, layer and enhance aspects of a narrative, as well as help build performer/audience connectivity through perceptions of intimacy, authenticity and female agency.
