520    "From her creation of the first 'Approval Matrix' in New 
       York magazine in 2004 to her Pulitzer Prize-winning 
       columns for The New Yorker, Emily Nussbaum has known all 
       along that what we watch is who we are. In this collection,
       including several substantive, never-before-published 
       essays, Nussbaum writes about her passion for television 
       beginning with Buffy--as she writes, a show that was so 
       much more than its critical assessment--the evolution of 
       female protagonists over the last decade, the complex role
       of sexual violence on TV, and what to do about art when 
       the artist is revealed to be a monster. And, she also 
       explores the links between the television antihero and the
       rise of Trump. The book is an argument, not a collection 
       of reviews. Through it all, Nussbaum recounts her fervent 
       search, over fifteen years, for a new kind of criticism 
       that resists the false hierarchy that places one kind of 
       culture over another. It traces her own development as she
       has struggled to punch through stifling notions of 
       'prestige television,' searching for a wilder and freer 
       and more varied idea of artistic ambition--one that 
       acknowledges many types of beauty and complexity, and that
       opens to more varied voices. It's a book that celebrates 
       television as television, even as each year warps the 
       definition of just what that might mean"--|cProvided by
