Choose 1 television or streaming show that you feel perpetuates the idea that television is indeed a form of art

Initial Post Instructions
Many people would say that the 1999 premier of The Sopranos was a turning point in the development of television as an art form. Choose a television or streaming show that you feel perpetuates the idea that television is indeed a form of art. For the initial post, address the following:

  • Include the name of the show and the director.
  • Explain why you think this program is art.
  • What impact does the example have on viewers’ lives?
  • What were some influences of this work?
  • Include a statement from an actor, director, or critic of the program that supports your points.

Follow-Up Post Instructions
Respond to at least two peers or one peer and the instructor. Respond to one peer who chose an option different from yours. Further the dialogue by providing more information and clarification.

Writing Requirements

  • Minimum of 3 posts (1 initial & 2 follow-up)
  • Minimum of 2 sources cited (assigned readings/online lessons and an outside source)
  • APA format for in-text citations and list of references

This week we will be considering the role of television as art.

As you begin your research this week I recommend these two sources which can be located in the online library.  Be sure that you are incorporating concepts and ideas from your textbook and at least one other scholarly source:  

  • Markus, G. (2013). The Path of Culture. Critical Horizons, 14(2), 127-155. Retrieved from com/login.aspx?direct=true&db=a9h&AN=90310258&site=eds-live&scope=site” target=”_blank” rel=”noreferrer noopener”> (Links to an external site.)
  • Rothman, J. and Overbey, E. (2017). How TV Became Art.  The New Yorker.  Retrieved from (Links to an external site.)

You may want to consider the following concepts or questions in the discussion this week as well:

  • Can television really be compared as “art” like other forms of respected art (impressionism, classical music, opera, etc)?
  • Has what we considered “art” declined over time? Consider the training and effort that went into art centuries ago compared with today’s “art”.  What can explain this?
  • How would you define “high culture” and “popular culture”? What are the differences between the two terms?
