Pulitzer-winning critic Emily Nussbaum on the evolution of TV and the shows that changed her life
Pulitzer Prize-winning critic Emily Nussbaum is arguably the most important and influential person writing about television today. The New Yorker TV critic has charted the rise of high-end cable drama and written extensively about the period that some now call "peak TV."
In her new collection of essays, I Like To Watch, Nussbaum explains how Buffy the Vampire Slayer changed her life, how the #MeToo movement has affected stories on the small screen, and how notions of highbrow and lowbrow are evolving. She joined q's Tom Power to tell us more.
Nussbaum's new collection of essays, I Like To Watch, is out now. If you want to hear more from Nussbaum, she'll be joining us on the q screen panel on Monday, July 8.
