How did Casablanca affect the home front during World War II? What is the postfeminist significance of Buffy the Vampire Slayer? The Journal of Popular Film and Television answers such far-ranging questions by using the methods of popular culture studies to examine commercial film and television, historical and contemporary. Articles discuss networks, genres, series, and audiences, as well as celebrity stars, directors, and studios. Regular features include essays on the social and cultural background of films and television programs, filmographies, bibliographies, and commissioned book and video reviews. Each year, the journal publishes one theme issue on such (upcoming) subjects as "Media Literacy and Education: The Teacher-Scholar in Film and Television" and "Fantastic Voyages: Horror, Fantasy, and Science Fiction/Speculative Cinema." In a field where most writing is hokum, The Journal of Popular Film and Television delivers solid, lively insights.
