Television Criticism: A Deca-Approach.
Oseguera, A. Anthony
Noting that one of the greatest criticisms of television is the lack of television criticism itself, this paper proposes a multidimensional approach to the subject, based on current forms of criticism and theory. The 10 forms of criticism or theory discussed in the paper are (1) rhetorical criticism, (2) dramatic criticism, (3) literary criticism, (4) cinematic criticism, (5) content analysis, (6) myth, (7) linguistics, (8) semiotics, (9) phenomenalism, and (10) phenomenology. Each discussion reviews the background of the criticism or theory form and its specific applications to television. (FL)
