It offers critical examinations of Dexter, Sons of Anarchy, True Blood, Breaking Bad, and Boardwalk Empire. What purpose might such unusual protagonists serve in todays culture and what do their tales tell about U.S.

political and economic issues from 2008 to 2012?The author discovers how the characters that seem initially so different prove to be strong examplars of established forms of power, such as white patriarchy and late capitalist interests. The study finds that even when the characters are groundbreaking fictional figures, they are all eventually written into submission by the narratives of their series, echoing the same tales of fictitious heroism recycled in American television narratives for decades.

New trends in television narratives are discussed--with the expectation that perhaps future dramas will free audiences from oppressive narratives rather than continue to normalize them.
