How Television Evolved During the Era of Classic TV
Original Airdates: Feb. 19-21, 2021
TVC 527.1: Ed welcomes novelist, essayist, and TV historian Mitchell Hadley. Mitchell’s latest book, The Electronic Mirror: What Classic TV Tells US About Who We Were and Who We Are (and Everything in Between), is a series of essays that take a look at what classic television is, what it says about the culture that produced it, and why the shared experience of television that marked the lives of so many of us who came of age in a three-network TV universe is often lost on viewers today. Topics this segment include why shows Route 66 and The Fugitive provide a better window into the culture of the 1960s than modern-day shows such as Mad Men.

Perry Mason, Ernie Kovacs, and The Electronic Mirror
Original Airdates: Feb. 19-21, 2021
TVC 527.2: Novelist, essayist, and TV historian Mitchell Hadley talks to Ed about the eternal appeal of Perry Mason; the genius of Ernie Kovacs; and how prime time game shows such as What’s My Line? also serve as “inadvertent documentaries” about the culture of the early 1960s. Mitchell’s latest book, The Electronic Mirror: What Classic TV Tells US About Who We Were and Who We Are (and Everything in Between), traces the evolution of the various genres that populated the first three decades of television, while also showing why the shared experience of television that marked the lives of so many of us who came of age in a three-network TV universe is often lost on contemporary viewers.
