Book Description

15 Nov 2007
These critical essays examine Chase's television writings, placing particular emphasis on how his past works have shaped and influenced the current cultural phenomenon of HBO's "The Sopranos", and studying Chase's use of identity, community, and place in defining his on-screen characters. Topics explored in this book include Chase's constructs of the urban LA environment in "The Rockford Files", the portrayal of hybridized American archetypes in "Northern Exposure", and the interpretation of sexual identity/masculinity in "The Sopranos". It also includes an interview with David Chase, along with an appendix containing complete episode guides for "The Rockford Files", "Northern Exposure", and "The Sopranos".

Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
This series of essays deals with various aspects of three of David Chase's most successful TV shows: The Rockford Files, Northern Exposure, and The Sopranos. The authors explore a number of subjects - why each show was so successful, how the shows reflect back to us various aspects of our culture, why the shows spoke to us and became so successful. Sometimes the essays are a bit over-academic, as if some of the authors were bending over backwards to prove to us that writing about a television series is in fact a valid subject for Ph.Ds. Yet even the more turgid essays cast new light on these beloved shows.
