Seminar on Television Series and Aesthetics
FILM 387
Fall 2021
Section: 01  

Through frequent viewing of episodes, classroom discussion, and written exercises, students will consider television programs over multiple seasons and series as they work to describe and differentiate models of television series construction. Of primary interest is the creative decision making that goes into creating this commercial art form--recognizing patterns of intention, choice, and effect; how these operate on a variety of scales; and what attitudes a program may manifest toward the medium and the viewer. Series viewed may include I LOVE LUCY, THE PRISONER, ATLANTA, THE X-FILES, BROAD CITY, and others, including student-generated selections.
