Teleparody: Predicting/preventing the Tv Discourse of Tomorrow

Cover
Angela Hague, David Lavery
Wallflower Press, 2002 - 198 Seiten

Umberto Eco once observed that parody "must never be afraid of going too far. If its aim is true, it simply heralds what others will later produce, unblushing, with impassive and assertive gravity." In a cautionary attempt to dissuade those who may be tempted, Teleparody fearlessly does go too far in its compilation of reviews of

not-yet-existing, but all-too-possible contributions to television studies. In the tradition of Mad Magazine and the online humor newspaper The Onion, the contributors bring all their critical skills to bear examining the hypothetical scholarship surrounding such TV texts as The Beverly Hillbillies, South Park, the Weather Channel, Mister Rogers and Mister Ed, The Teletubbies, Max Headroom, Sally Field, and reality TV.
