With the rise of peak TV two decades into the 21st century, television has disrupted the film industry, and it has produced – and been affected by – dramatic changes in the popular consumption of visual media. While movie attendance continued its steep decline in 2017 (reaching a 25-year low), network, cable, and internet-streaming platforms combined to air nearly 500 scripted television shows in 2017, an increase from around 200 shows in 2002.

Since the emergence of Capitalism in Western society, humanity’s role as consumers of culture has become internalized as an inalienable component of modernity. From Marx’s metaphor of vampire labor in Capital to George Romero’s metaphorical representation of zombies as consumers in Dawn of the Dead to the ravenous hunger of online fandoms eagerly seeking for new content, the relationship between popular culture and its human consumers draws upon a rich, expansive history that recontextualizes interpolated human relationships by emphasizing (and sometimes questioning) the cultural narratives that dominate modern societies.
