GenreTV is a place for me to wax poetic (and sometimes not so poetic) about the television I love. Most of this tends to fall under the category of “genre television,” a wooly term typically applied to science fiction, fantasy, and horror. Much like the defintion, my ramblings will spill over into other genres and subjects. Above all, my subjects will be united by my love of story, well-developed characters, and complex worlds depicted in the television serial, as well as the belief that great television – like all art – makes important comments on the very real world in which we live.
“One day, out of irritation, I said, you know all of those years with the Royal Shakespeare Company, all those years of playing kings and princes and speaking black verse, and bestriding the landscape of England was nothing but a preparation for sitting in the captain’s chair of the Enterprise.” – Patrick Stewart defending the significance of his role as Jean-Luc Picard on “Star Trek: The Next Generation”
