It is virtually impossible to watch a movie or TV show without preconceived notions because of the hype that precedes them, while a host of media extensions guarantees them a life long past their air dates. An onslaught of information from print media, trailers, internet discussion, merchandising, podcasts, and guerilla marketing, we generally know something about upcoming movies and TV shows well before they are even released or aired. The extras, or “paratexts,” that surround viewing experiences are far from peripheral, shaping our understanding of them and informing our decisions about what to watch or not watch and even how to watch before we even sit down for a show. Show Sold Separately gives critical attention to this ubiquitous but often overlooked phenomenon, examining paratexts like DVD bonus materials for The Lord of the Rings, spoilers for Lost, the opening credits of The Simpsons, Star Wars actions figures, press reviews for Friday Night Lights, the framing of Batman Begins, the videogame of The Thing, and the trailers for The Sweet Hereafter. Plucking these extra materials from the wings and giving them the spotlight they deserve, Jonathan Gray examines the world of film and television that exists before and after the show.

Juli 1802: Am Nordufer der Themse, unweit von London, liegt das Hispaniola, ein Wirtshaus, das von Jim Hawkins und seinem Sohn geführt wird. Jim junior unternimmt oft einsame Streifzüge durch die nebelverhangene Marschlandschaft; ansonsten muss er nach der Pfeife seines Vaters tanzen und im Schankraum der Kneipe den immergleichen Geschichten lauschen: von Abenteuern auf hoher See, von Mord, Rache, vergrabenen Schätzen - und von einem Mann mit einem Holzbein. Eines Spätabends taucht ein Mädchen bei Jim auf, Natty, mit einer Botschaft ihres Vaters - Long John Silver. Der alters-, aber keineswegs willensschwache Pirat hat einen Plan: Jim und Natty sollen gemeinsam zur Schatzinsel aufbrechen und den Silberschatz bergen, der vor vielen Jahren dort zurückgelassen werden musste. Wenig später stechen Jim und Natty in See, genau wie einst ihre Väter. Während der Reise wachsen nicht nur ihre Gefühle füreinander, sondern auch die Ahnung, dass das eigentliche Abenteuer noch vor ihnen liegt. Und sie haben recht: Als die "Nightingale" ihr Ziel erreicht, weicht die Aufregung um den versteckten Schatz ungeahntem Schrecken. Denn die Schatzinsel ist nicht mehr so menschenleer, wie sie einmal war...

In his third book on the semiotics of title sequences, Title Sequences as Paratexts, theorist Michael Betancourt offers an analysis of the relationship between the title sequence and its primary text—the narrative whose production the titles credit. Using a wealth of examples drawn from across film history—ranging from White Zombie (1931), Citizen Kane (1940) and Bullitt (1968) to Prince of Darkness (1987), Mission: Impossible (1996), Sucker Punch (2011) and Guardians of the Galaxy, Vol. 2 (2017)—Betancourt develops an understanding of how the audience interprets title sequences as instances of paranarrative, simultaneously engaging them as both narrative exposition and as credits for the production. This theory of cinematic paratexts, while focused on the title sequence, has application to trailers, commercials, and other media as well.

Das Ausloten von Grenzen, ihre Überschreitung und Neudefinition sind zentrale Phänomene in der Kunst. Da künstlerische Interessen an neuen Ausdrucksformen und Problemlösungen zunehmend die Grenzen der jeweils eigenen Gattung überschreiten, sind auch die Kunstwissenschaften gefordert, diesen Transformationen durch interdisziplinäre Grenzgänge Rechnung zu tragen. Dieser Band ermöglicht einen einmaligen Einblick in aktuelle Forschungstendenzen und stellt Entgrenzungsphänomene und transformatorische Prozesse in den Künsten vor. Die vielfältigen Beiträge thematisieren intermediale und transgressive Besonderheiten in bildender Kunst, Film, Musik und Theater. Hierbei wird ein zeitlicher Bogen von Gemälden alter Meister bis hin zu zeitgenössischen Performances geschlagen.

Originating as a radio series in 1933, the Lone Ranger is a cross-media star who has appeared in comic strips, comic books, adult and juvenile novels, feature films and serials, clothing, games, toys, home furnishings, and many other consumer products. In his prime, he rivaled Mickey Mouse as one of the most successfully licensed and merchandised children's properties in the United States, while in more recent decades, the Lone Ranger has struggled to resonate with consumers, leading to efforts to rebrand the property. The Lone Ranger's eighty-year history as a lifestyle brand thus offers a perfect case study of how the fields of licensing, merchandizing, and brand management have operated within shifting industrial and sociohistorical conditions that continue to redefine how the business of entertainment functions. Deciphering how iconic characters gain and retain their status as cultural commodities, Selling the Silver Bullet focuses on the work done by peripheral consumer product and licensing divisions in selectively extending the characters' reach and in cultivating investment in these characters among potential stakeholders. Tracing the Lone Ranger's decades-long career as intellectual property allows Avi Santo to analyze the mechanisms that drive contemporary character licensing and entertainment brand management practices, while at the same time situating the licensing field's development within particular sociohistorical and industrial contexts. He also offers a nuanced assessment of the ways that character licensing firms and consumer product divisions have responded to changing cultural and economic conditions over the past eighty years, which will alter perceptions about the creative and managerial authority these ancillary units wield.

Over the past two decades, new technologies, changing viewer practices, and the proliferation of genres and channels has transformed American television. One of the most notable impacts of these shifts is the emergence of highly complex and elaborate forms of serial narrative, resulting in a robust period of formal experimentation and risky programming rarely seen in a medium that is typically viewed as formulaic and convention bound. Complex TV offers a sustained analysis of the poetics of television narrative, focusing on how storytelling has changed in recent years and how viewers make sense of these innovations. Through close analyses of key programs, including The Wire, Lost, Breaking Bad, The Sopranos, Veronica Mars, Curb Your Enthusiasm, and Mad Men the book traces the emergence of this narrative mode, focusing on issues such as viewer comprehension, transmedia storytelling, serial authorship, character change, and cultural evaluation. Developing a television-specific set of narrative theories, Complex TV argues that television is the most vital and important storytelling medium of our time.

Fandom is generally viewed as an integral part of everyday life which impacts upon how we form emotional bonds with ourselves and others in a modern, mediated world. Whilst it is inevitable for television series to draw to a close, the reactions of fans have rarely been considered. Williams explores this everyday occurence through close analysis of television fans to examine how they respond to, discuss, and work through their feelings when shows finish airing. Through a range of case studies, including The West Wing (NBC, 2000-2006), Lost (ABC 2004 -2010), Buffy the Vampire Slayer (1997-2003), Doctor Who (BBC 1963-1989; 2005-), The X-Files (FOX, 1993-2002), Firefly (FOX, 2002) and Sex and the City (HBO, 1998-2004), Williams considers how fans prepare for the final episodes of shows, how they talk about this experience with fellow fans, and how, through re-viewing, discussion and other fan practices, they seek to maintain their fandom after the show's cessation.
