HASH(0x8dd1f864) von 5 Sternen Aaron Barnhart Was There-- And That's a Good Thing 21. März 2010
Von Donna L. Halper - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch Verifizierter Kauf
I've never met Aaron Barnhart ('m a media historian, and I know a number of radio/TV critics), but I had read his columns online, and when I heard he had a new book, Tasteland, I was eager to buy a copy. I'm glad that I did. Like his TVBarn columns, Barnhart's book is very readable, as if he were sitting in your living room chatting with you about television, popular culture, and current events. The majority of the book revisits some of the biggest stories from 1994-2009, as they were seen on TV, and as Barnhart wrote about them (he revised and updated these essays for publication in Tasteland). Some of the essays are about entertainment-- a number of pages are devoted to the combatants in the Late Night TV wars-- Jay Leno, David Letterman, Conan O'Brien. But the book covers a wide range of topics-- he reminisces about Andy Kaufman, critiques Queer Eye for the Straight Guy, ponders what Edward R. Murrow would think of Jon Stewart, and discusses what's right and what's wrong with reality shows.

Some of the essays are serious-- he evaluates the network and cable news reporting on 9/11; talks about what was missing from coverage of the Invasion of Iraq; and offers an interesting critique of Al-Jazeera. Barnhart is more than capable of being an objective observer, even-handedly offering his views on both left-wing and right-wing political commentators or assessing the state of TV news; but some of his best pieces are those where he acknowledges an emotional connection with the subject of an essay, such as the one about his friendship with the late TV critic Gene Siskel, or his tribute to Steve Harvey.

Some readers may be more interested in Barnhart's 100 Best TV shows than I was -- such lists are always subjective, and I find myself agreeing with some choices and disagreeing with others. But for me, what made this book so valuable was the Television History-- re-living the past 15 years through Barnhart's eyes. Although he is not a polemicist, he does not shy away from difficult issues, including the incompetence of FEMA, conversations about racism on C-Span, and why then-FCC chair Michael Powell suddenly became so focused on broadcast indecency. But since this is also a book about popular culture, Barnhart offers fascinating insights about such shows as 24, American Idol and Mad Men. Given the wealth of information, I wish the book had an index at the end, but that's a minor quibble. Anyone who wants to be reminded of where we've been and how much has changed (as well as how much has not) ought to get a copy of Tasteland.

HASH(0x8dd231b0) von 5 Sternen Great Overview Of The TV Biz 28. Februar 2010
Von Michael M - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch Verifizierter Kauf
Aaron Barnhart has put together a wonderful overview of the crazy and amazing world of television. Tasteland is a look back at the past 15 years of the tv business, and it is filled with insight and humor and some actual real opinions. The final chapter, I, CRITICUS, The 100 Best, is worth the price of the the book alone. Anyone who is interested in reading the evolution of television should buy this book.
