Critical Studies in Television, Ahead of Print. This article is based on a three-year-long content analysis of the use of reality TV content on the front pages of four popular video streaming services in Denmark: DRTV, TV 2 Play, Viaplay, and Netflix. The results give rare insights into front pages that are normally hidden behind logins but also longitudinal perspectives about the services’ changing curation practices. In particular, the two institutions with public-service obligations, DR and TV 2, have VOD services that showcase reality content more prominently than the two commercial compet ..read more

A See change? The problematic (visual) politics of screening the Anthropocene
SAGE Journals » Critical Studies in Television
by Robert A. Saunders
1M ago
Critical Studies in Television, Ahead of Print. Using the concept of the Anthropo(s)cene, this article interrogates the visual politics of See (2019-2022) to examine the ways in which screened landscapes can be deployed to engage with subconscious guilt associated with the despoiling of the natural environment. Employing a critical assessment of See’s narrative, visuals and production practices, this article argues that the series serves as an example of humanity’s attempt to address its impact on the planet, while simultaneously functioning as a testament to the species’ failure to move beyon ..read more

Screening Greenland in Borgen—Power & Glory: The on- and off-screen contestedness of Arctic landscapes and locations
SAGE Journals » Critical Studies in Television
by Anders Grønlund, Anne Marit Risum Waade
1M ago
Critical Studies in Television, Ahead of Print. This article shows how the Arctic landscapes in the Danish political drama series Borgen—Power & Glory (2022) demonstrate Greenland as a contested land in distinct ways: culturally due to the postcolonial tension between Denmark and Greenland; politically due to the conflicted interests from Denmark and other nations for the country’s natural resources; environmentally due to the looming transformation of the Arctic landscapes due to global warming, and commercially due to increasing interest in screen production from Greenlandic tourism acto ..read more

The underground and end of geologic imaginations in the Finnish/Swedish TV Series White Wall
SAGE Journals » Critical Studies in Television
by Irina Souch
1M ago
Critical Studies in Television, Ahead of Print. In this article, I analyse how underground landscapes are represented in the Finnish/Swedish television series, White Wall (2020). Subterranean imaginations, I argue, help reconceptualise the agency of the inorganic, mineral and geological along with that of the biological and social. Juxtaposing the underground with the surface, White Wall unfolds not only horizontal but also vertical ways of thinking about human/non-human relations in the Anthropocene. I also discuss how the series engages with fantastical nineteenth-century stories of Earth’s ..read more

Netflix’s high-end global telefantasy: Conspicuous and virtual localism
SAGE Journals » Critical Studies in Television
by Andrew Lynch, César Albarrán-Torres
1M ago
Critical Studies in Television, Ahead of Print. Netflix has commissioned and released an increasing number of high-end international series that tap into the genres of science fiction, fantasy and horror. These follow one of two strategies: (1) local productions that engage with local folklore and myths, or (2) productions centred in the ‘West’, where international talent is brought in to create cosmopolitan ‘global’ TV events such as 1899 (2022). The first strategy brings together local storytelling with a globally appealing packaging. The second strategy risks reducing ‘transnational’ produc ..read more
