“Viewers have been so programmed into experiencing a structure and development deriving from language, that when they are confronted with something that does not unfold along the familiar path, they become perplexed, confused, annoyed, even angry, and commonly perceive the program as a failure.”

 

“To people who say that TV and the media have expanded out view of the world and brought us more information than ever before, artists say that TV has simultaneously narrowed us down in its demand for a consistent, accepted convention in how this information must be packaged.”
