Films are great because you know that they begin and end. After subjecting yourself to something like, say, SEXTETTE, you can pop in CITIZEN KANE, no problem. Television, on the other hand, is a bit more relentless. Even as someone who loves all things campy I find myself horribly depressed just flipping through the medium once billed as the most revolutionary educational devices of the 20th century.
It can be tough to pinpoint any part of TV as "camp" because it unabashedly blends commercialism, fashion, drama, comedy, truth, and fiction. Even more than film, TV is constantly responding to the almighty dollar. The result is one hell of a lot of terrible television. Here at Camp Academy, we regretfully make note of the worst current TV has to offer, but will have no hard feelings should you choose to change the channel.
