When the final episode of Buffy the Vampire Slayer aired in 2003, fans mourned the death of the hit television series Yet the show has lived on through syndication, global distribution, DVD release, and merchandising, as well as in the memories of its devoted viewers Buffy stands out from much entertainment television by offering sharp, provocative commentaries on genderWhen the final episode of Buffy the Vampire Slayer aired in 2003, fans mourned the death of the hit television series Yet the show has lived on through syndication, global distribution, DVD release, and merchandising, as well as in the memories of its devoted viewers Buffy stands out from much entertainment television by offering sharp, provocative commentaries on gender, sexuality, race, ethnicity, and youth Yet it has also been central to changing trends in television production and reception As a flagship show for two U.S netlets the WB and UPN Buffy helped usher in the post network era, and as the inspiration for an active fan base, it helped drive the proliferation of Web based fan engagement.In Undead TV, media studies scholars tackle the Buffy phenomenon and its many afterlives in popular culture, the television industry, the Internet, and academic criticism Contributors engage with critical issues such as stardom, gender identity, spectatorship, fandom, and intertextuality Collectively, they reveal how a vampire television series set in a sunny California suburb managed to provide some of the most biting social commentaries on the air while exposing the darker side of American life By offering detailed engagements with Sarah Michelle Gellar s celebrity image, science fiction fanzines, international and youth audiences, Buffy tie in books, and Angel s body, Undead TV shows how this prime time drama became a prominent marker of industrial, social, and cultural change.Contributors Ian Calcutt, Cynthia Fuchs, Amelie Hastie, Annette Hill, Mary Celeste Kearney, Elana Levine, Allison McCracken, Jason Middleton, Susan Murray, Lisa Parks

Comments Undead TV: Essays on Buffy the Vampire Slayer

  • Remi

    Great critical analysis of one of my favorite TV series. But what makes this one stand out from the several I've read (and enjoyed) in the past is that this book analyzes its media presence (marketing, advertising, etc) which is awesome because I majored in mass comm. I loved how these writers picked apart everything from Buffy's feminist credentials to how episodes and scenes were shot to all of the analogies and hyperbole. My only criticism is of the chapters that analyzed the issue of race in [...]


  • Gill

    A thoughtful set of essays looking at the show as cultural artefact and set in its period, which is, horrifically, twenty years ago now - at least, S2 is. I particularly enjoyed the discussion of the British reception and the attempts by TV channels to put the Buffyverse into a "box" - I still haven't really forgiven C4 for what they did to Angel, while at least the Beeb had later screenings of uncensored episodes. In places a little dated, inevitably, but still refreshingly prepared to take thi [...]

    The first essays are all about things like the impact of the show, marketing of the show, fan interaction with the show, etc. I am way more interested in criticism of the show itself. Give me readings of that text until the end of time, and I'll be happy. So I put it down for a while, not all that engaged, but then picked it back up & the next 2 essays were awesome. One is about race in Buffy and Dark Angel (which I haven't watched). It says that BtVS "depicts the whiteness of Buffy and her [...]

    Very interesting. As it is a collection on varying topics and by different authors, some chapters were better than others. But I certainly enjoyed reading it. While I am pretty versed on Buffy, my eyes were opened to some aspects of the show and it's connected literature that I hadn't even thought of. Would recommend to Buffy lovers!


  • Laura

    This wasn't bad or anything, just not what I expected and not interesting to me personally.


  • Bibliofiendlm

    Definitely interesting perspectives on the Buffyverse from an academic angle.


  • Meg

    I was reading this in university when I was very busy with schoolwork, so I didn't get a chance to finish it. I would really like to get back to it someday.
