"Upon the invention of television, a first force restricting the textual analysis of television from developing was the established dominance of social science methods for studying mass media such as radio and print."
"Meanwhile, the humanities traditions of literary and rhetorical criticism that were well established at this time largely disregarded television at first as an inferior artistic form of the masses, not relevant to be considered as art or likely to hold deeper meaning."
"Although this would eventually change, and although many of the critical tools most commonly used in textual analysis of television originate from literary and film studies, the acceptance of television as a legitimate artistic form alongside literature and film required difficult -- and likely incomplete -- negotiation."
I found myself constantly having to read slowly and/or re-read sentences just to understand what was being said. Hopefully someone with better analysis skills can offer a more qualified description of the books quality. As for me, I'll let the quotes above serve as an example of what I believe is representative of the texts quality so judge for yourself.
