The classic collection of criticism about television and American culture from the late, multi-award-winning legend.   From 1968 through 1972, Harlan Ellison penned a series of weekly columns, sharing his uncompromising thoughts about contemporary television programming for the Los Angeles Free Press, a.k.a. "The Freep," a countercultural, underground newspaper. Sitcoms and variety shows, westerns and cop dramas, newscasts and commercials, Ellison left no pixilated stone unturned, expounding on the insipidness, hypocrisy, and malaise found in the glowing images projected into the faces of American audiences.   The Glass Teat: Essays of Opinion on the Subject of Television collects fifty-two of Ellison's columns--including his 2011 introduction "Welcome to the Gulag," his unapologetic commentary about how cellphones and the internet have extended television's reach, eroding intelligence and freedom and creating a legion of bloodshot eyed zombies unable to communicate beyond their screens or think for themselves.   Provocative and prescient, irreverent and insightful, Ellison's critical analyses of the glowing box that became the center of American life are even more relevant in the twenty-first century.    Also available: The Other Glass Teat: Further Essays of Opinion on the Subject of Television… (mehr)

Scary stuff. Forty years down the road from Nixon, Kent State, Vietnam, a president demonizing the media and lying through his teeth. History repeats itself in such a shocking manner. ( )

Harlan Ellison had written successful TV Scripts and Magazine articles before doing this stint as a TV critic. Be prepared for the 1969-70 TV broadcast television series and ethos being slashed and burnt by a very severe critic and competent artist. For the social historian: this is what the demonstrators went home and watched. ( )

Rambling essays and rants on the evils of television. Some typically pithy Ellison wisecracking and occasional thoughtful discussion, but in general the tone is bad-tempered and negative. First published in 1969, and reissued with an introduction by Elllison in 1983, it feels very dated; this one has not aged particularly gracefully. ( )

Television: the Big Babysitter, both shaper of reality and reality itself, give us this day our daily bread and Rock on! ( )

For 2 1/2 years, Harlan Ellison wrote a Television column for the Los Angeles Free Press. Ellison is a take-no-prisoners gadfly from the word "go", which he will shout out if no one else does. The period was the late 1960's - early 1970's, one of the most volatile and fascinating periods in American cultural history. Ellison did not restrain his columns to television, although it usually formed a backdrop. These columns, mainly consisting of Ellison railing against the known universe (or at least the establishment part of it) are a fascinating read, even 30 years later. Ellison is a lot of things, but "boring" has never been one of them. ( )
