Television with no Pity was once an online group dedicated to criticizing tv courses.

Sample text

M. FALERO many networks were just starting to revamp their websites, and several did not host or encourage any form of online discussion. Most networks today have websites with message boards, Twitter accounts, and official Facebook pages. They encourage viewers to join in the discussion on a variety of social platforms and promote those platforms on television. Whole departments are in charge of the social media presence in today’s television industry. In subsequent chapters, I discuss a few of the creators that entered the message boards at Television Without Pity.

A few years before, films like The Lord of the Rings, X-Men, and Spider Man became blockbusters, and San Diego’s yearly Comic-Con was becoming an A-list event. Many spaces at Television Without Pity were filled with “traditional” fans, who had experience in the pre-digital fan community and shepherded non-fans into the norms of fan practice. ” Even though, she mentioned, “most people were really into it and fascinated,” there were those that “not so secretly wanted us to stop talking about Clark and Lex having relations.

That denial seeks to disenfranchise. For the purposes of this study, I regard Television Without Pity as a community. Its members and founders refered to it as such in passing as well as during moments in which they felt they were being attacked by perceived outsiders. Many studies of the Internet have approached spaces online as cultures and largely avoided exploring the ways in which those same spaces are artifacts. Television Without Pity is a good example of the flexibility with which the web, and specifically web communities, needs to be studied.
