Building on recent work on media narration and digital immersion, M. King Adkins’s book is a timely exploration of just what makes television a unique storytelling medium. Television, Adkins demonstrates, is a teleportation device—a narrative technology that tells stories through constructing on-going, immersive storyworlds. We don’t just watch TV, we visit, inhabit, return. Further, as Adkins deftly demonstrates, television often tells stories about itself, thus thinking through television stories helps us think through all storytelling technologies and their futures. With this, Adkins offers a particularly useful path to evaluating the now-routine claims about the coming of VR and TV’s final defeasance. Absorbing, accessible and filled with evocative examples, Television Storyworlds as Virtual Space is an insightful examination of contemporary television narration, how storyspaces are constructed, and why television endures.
