Drawing on the Past…

I have a Google alert set up for sitcoms.  No surprise there.  I find some great articles that way, many of which turn up on the Facebook page for The Sitcom Reader:  America Re-viewed, Still Skewed.

Imagine my smile when I read this review of several upcoming CBS situation comedies rooted in techniques of the past.  Great opportunity for my students to test their newfound knowledge of the conventions of the genre.

And…don’t forget…there’s even a reference to The Adventures of Ozzie and Harriet.  Lots of “cultural capital” here.  (Yes, that last bit was a little tongue in cheek.)
