"This is an ambitious analysis of television studies as a whole." —Library Journal

Focusing on U.S. television of the 1980s—from Miami Vice, Moonlighting, and Pee-wee's Playhouse to Max Headroom—Lynne Joyrich explores how gender affects the reception of television. She traces how the medium has been chracterized as "feminine" and then turns to the television shows themselves and analyzes a range of genres and forms.
