Television Criticism: A Multifarious Approach.
Oseguera, A. Anthony
Recognizing the need for a multifarious approach to television, this paper provides the reader with the following multidimensional approaches to television criticism: rhetorical, dramatic, literary, cinematic, content analysis, myth, linguistics, semiotics, phenomenalism, phenomenology, interpersonal communication, public relations, image, classification, and criticism. The paper demonstrates how each of these approaches might be used to critique television art. For example, the section on rhetorical criticism provides the reader with "extrinsic" and "intrinsic" elements; dramatic criticism renders a schema beginning with the inciting incident and culminating with denouement; cinematic criticism offers Eisensteinian and Bazinian theories as represented in fiction and nonfiction films; image as criticism offers Boorstinian and Bazinian theories regarding pseudoevents and the relationship between images and truth; and criticism as criticism substantiates a "stylological" approach to the criticism of other television critics.
