The Empty Hearse

The purpose of this assignment is to systematize your viewing experience as you

conduct primary research on your television show. If you have complete and careful

notes from episodes of your television show, you should be able to create a more

authoritative critique of the show.


Watch a minimum of 10 episodes of your television show. Note the name of each

episode as well as its date and original airing time. Then, take notes as you

watch the show. Your handwriting should be legible to receive credit for this



Each entry should include the following:


Specific information about the content of the episode such as the theme,


plot lines, characters, advertisements, etc.


Observations about production techniques such as lighting, camera

angles/movement, costumes, etc. Review the chapter on production in

your textbook.


Your ideas about the episode, e.g. what values, myths, metaphors, socio-

economic/political issues did the episode address? What other concepts

from the textbook apply to this episode? What features of the episode

strike you as important or curious or worth investigation? What might be a

good critical approach to the episode?


Staple your pages together and put your name on the first page. The average

page length for this assignment varies but less than 7 pages total (1/episode)

means you’re probably not taking careful notes or making sufficient observations.
