Review:

"These essays are the most valuable, original, powerful (and funny) any critic has produced in the history of American television. Boxed In is the benchmark work." --Todd Gitlin
"Mark Miller is at his best (and this best is very good indeed) when he shows . . . how television obliterates distinctions, trivializes issues, and reduces everything to insignificance. His analysis of the flattening, reductive effect of television is original and highly instructive." --Christopher Lasch, author of The Culture of Narcissism
