The millennial dramas: What HBO wrought

Further Reading: 'The Revolution Was Televised'

The sitcom isn't the only television art form to undergo a seismic shift in the last two decades. TV critic Alan Sepinwall examines the so-called "millennial dramas" in his self-published The Revolution Was Televised: The Cops, Crooks, Slingers and Slayers Who Changed TV Drama Forever. Careful TV watchers already know the impact of HBO's Oz and The Sopranos and their trickle-down effect on AMC, FX, and even the occasional network (NBC's Friday Night Lights); where Sepinwall's 12-case study really distinguishes itself is in the many revealing interviews with the major players behind the TV drama revolution.
