Difficult Men: Behind the Scenes of a Creative Revolution: From The Sopranos and The Wire to Mad Men and Breaking Bad
Difficult Men: Behind the Scenes of a Creative Revolution: From The Sopranos and The Wire to Mad Men and Breaking Bad by Brett Martin
My rating: 3 of 5 stars

A look at some of the “difficult men” (showrunners and writers) who have brought their own difficult male characters to life in shows such as “The Sopranos,” “Mad Men,” and “Breaking Bad.” Provides a chronology of shows in what is often called the “Third Golden Age of television,” from their antecedents in the work of Cannell and Bochco to today’s basic-cable and premium-cable sagas.

Highly recommended for those interested in the study of television and/or television writing.
