A Brief History of Modern Television

24 Dec 2012

Alan Sepinwall for Grantland:

The story of Lost makes no sense.

Neither did the story of the story of Lost. I had always known that it was improbable that it ever got made, but I didn’t know just quite how improbable. Alan has carefully worked through the “important” series’ of recent television history – Lost being one of them – and explained why and how they changed the medium. If his explorations of Battlestar Galactica and Breaking Bad are anywhere near as good as this, the book is going to be well worth picking up.
