If you sat with the author and talked about how television both reflected and anticipated American culture, it would sound like this audiobook: fascinating, invigorating, and accessible. Narrator Emily Nussbaum doesn't sound like she has a trained voice, but she can present incisive arguments about the programs that have shaped our lives, our perceptions, and our outlooks. This anthology of her columns, including a new one written specifically for the book, allows her to rely on a conversational tone and easy pacing to make her points and allow us to consider her ideas about how television has affected us. There are times when Nussbaum does need to vary her approach or to be more demonstrative, but overall she captures our attention and keeps it.
