Chapter Reflection 9

I had actually been looking forward to reading this chapter. There has been so much change in television since its inception, the book would surely highlight much of that change.

It didn’t, unless it involved the actual device used for viewing programming.

I read so much about the difference between the tube television set and the digital television. I know what makes the new curved televisions something many people feel they must have.

What didn’t I read about?

  • Maude and the episode where she decides to have an abortion
  • Mary Tyler Moore and how she went from being Laura Petrie, all-American mom and wife, to the star of her own show – with her name as the title – as a single working woman trying to find her way in the world

I wanted to read about the men and women who changed television programming, not how the device changed.
