Smart film and television writers and directors have often incorporated scenes of characters watching films and television shows–sometimes actual, other times as unreal as “The Itchy and Scratch Show” or “Krusty the Clown” in The Simpsons. The aim of this blog is to compile, describe, and analyze some of the cleverest and most interesting uses of this device. Suggestions welcome–please comment on any post, or e-mail me at byagoda@udel.edu.
