Summary
In the last two decades, media scholars have often suggested that television has become cinematic. Once considered 'a mere instrument of transmission,' as Rudolf Arnheim put it, or derided as a vast wasteland, TV is now praised for its visual density and complexity. Serial dramas, in particular, are acclaimed for their imitations of cinema's stylistically innovative and narratively challenging conventions. But what exactly does 'cinematic TV' mean? This text takes up this question comprehensively, arguing that TV dramas quote, copy, and appropriate (primarily) American cinema in multiple ways and toward multiple ends. Putting together an innovative framework by combining intertextuality and memory studies, 'Cinematic TV' focuses on four modalities of intermedial borrowings: homage, evocation, genre, and parody
