Choose a contemporary television programme and examine its media reception. You need to choose a cross-section of reviews, from UK broadsheets such as The Guardian, The Times and The Independent and US newspapers such as The New York Times and The Los Angeles Times to magazines and guides such as TV Guide and Entertainment Weekly.
You are also encouraged to explore websites such as www.tv.com (Links to an external site.)Links to an external site. and reddit.com.
Please consider the following questions: how has your chosen television show been received in the media? What are the key themes and issues that come up in the popular reception of the programme? Do reviewers disagree regarding key aspects of the programme? Is it reviewed differently in major newspapers to viewer-led sites? You will need to choose quotations from reviews, but given the word constraints, these quotations will need to be concise and well chosen. The key thing is that you choose a focus – a particular theme or issue that has arisen in the reception of your TV show – and that you provide a concise and critical overview/discussion.
