Book turns the HBO story inside out and productively repositions what we think we know about the premium pay-TV company within a broader historical and institutional history of US culture-and television
Book notes HBO so-called showrunners created "quality television" for networks long before working with HBO
Book can be applauded for its attention to early stand-up comedy and "sex-docs" like Cathouse, which others often ignore, DeFino's focus on character studies and comparative analysis
Book could have been strengthened by engaging more thoroughly with scholarship that tackles issues of narrative complexity and industry studies
