 “Real fanhood, in other words, is, at its purest level, love. As in Corinthians, fanhood is patient, kind, not rude, etc. (It is also not easily angered and it keeps no record of wrongs.)

― Emily Nussbaum, I Like to Watch: Arguing My Way Through the TV Revolution

 “Viewers who craved other visions of creativity, other styles of filmmaking, or a different brand of funny or beautiful, felt that pressure, too; we felt it from without (in media messages that certain art was less important) but also from within. It was hard not to internalize these rules, even when you resisted them, even when they excluded your story.”

― Emily Nussbaum, I Like to Watch: Arguing My Way Through the TV Revolution

 “Barbara Ehrenreich’s book Bright-Sided: How Positive Thinking Is Undermining America, she dissects the darker history of positive thinking, the cult of optimism that has, in recent decades, she writes, metastasized into “an apology for the crueler aspects of the market economy”
― Emily Nussbaum, I Like to Watch: Arguing My Way Through the TV Revolution

“The problem was far bigger than the Oscars: When African Americans were starved of opportunity, they were forced to celebrate art merely because it existed, to be cheerleaders instead of individuals with distinct, even iconoclastic, tastes.”
― Emily Nussbaum, I Like to Watch: Arguing My Way Through the TV Revolution

 “In his manifesto “E Unibus Pluram: Television and U.S. Fiction,” the novelist warned that the boob tube was infecting literary novels with this empty self-loathing, passing on a strain of nihilistic irony like some aesthetic tapeworm.”
― Emily Nussbaum, I Like to Watch: Arguing My Way Through the TV Revolution

“Barris spoke longingly about the comedic collective that Judd Apatow had built, and said that he wanted to create something like it—“a contemporary, racially eclectic, gender-eclectic, experience-eclectic salon.”
― Emily Nussbaum, I Like to Watch: Arguing My Way Through the TV Revolution

One Final Bonus – Emily Nussbaum Quote 

“As the medium changed and more “auteurist” shows got green-lighted, and as “showrunner” became a term of art, turning television writers into celebrities with their own fan bases, shows that could be traced to one clear creator often got more credit from critics—a bias that tended, among other things, to favor drama over comedy. To quote BoJack Horseman: “Diane, the whole point of television is it’s a collaborative medium where one person gets all the credit.”
