It’s a comment that pops up in almost every conversation about TV: "We’re in a ‘new Golden Age.’"
In a terrific new piece for the Los Angeles Review of Books, Javier Grillo-Marxuach, a writer/producer of "Lost," takes apart this claim. He travels from the first ‘Golden Age’ of TV in the mid-1950s through to the one we are experiencing now, which began in the late 90s ("The Sopranos," "Sex and the City").
The piece goes deep, considering the influence that drove both golden ages, from "Kramer Vs. Kramer" to "Star Wars." He even calls the reader to question the use of the term ‘Golden Age’ in this context. Check it out!
