What happens when television is part of your cultural dna? Twelve writers talk about their influences, and they’re more Magnum, P.I. than Marcel Proust. This is cultural criticism from an enthusiast’s point of view—taking sitcoms and dramedies and very special episodes seriously, not because they’re art, but because they matter to us.


“From Twin Peaks to Daria, Little Boxes is filled to the brim with sharp writing that is at once critical and utterly personal, penned by a diverse list of writers.” —Shakespeare & Punk
