From airplanes to high school cafeterias, television is everywhere these days. Whether you are a Game of Thrones diehard or an Orange is the New Black binger, most of us have found ourselves entrenched in what some call the Third Golden Age of Television. Today on Word of Mouth we talk all things television. First, Matt Zoller Seitz  makes the case that Seinfeld was the original anti-hero. Then, we learn about a new psychiatric phenomenon called the “Truman Show Delusion.” Plus, is television really as bad for you as the media would like us to think? And should you even care? New York Times TV critic Neil Genslinger fills us in on his perspective.
