»Martin, who has given the last decade and a half the rather pretentious title of television’s Third Golden Age, describes the odd confluence of factors that gave birth to what he calls a ›creative revolution‹ wherein high-end television now rivals — and often 
exceeds — the quality of work produced by Hollywood film studios.«

Scott Stinson

A Third Golden Age for the TV? Scott Stinson about the book Difficult Men: Behind the Scenes of a Creative Revolution: From ‚The Sopranos‘ and ‚The Wire‘ to ‚Mad Men‘ and ‚Breaking Bad‘ by Brett Martin. His review at The National Post.

»And in Difficult Men Martin maps a wonderfully smart, lively and culturally astute survey of this recent revolution — starting with a great title that does double duty.«

Lisa Schwarzbaum

No more Mr. Nice Guys on TV: Lisa Schwarzbaum about the book Difficult Men : Behind the Scenes of a Creative Revolution: From ‚The Sopranos‘ and ‚The Wire‘ to ‚Mad Men‘ and ‚Breaking Bad‘ by Brett Martin. Her review at The New York Times.

»Looking back at the last decade and a half, Mr. Martin argues, it’s clear that the serialized drama has matured into a distinct art form all its own, »the equivalent of what the films of Scorsese, Altman, Coppola, and others had been to the 1970s or the novels of Updike, Roth, and Mailer had been to the 1960s.« Television had become »the dominant art form of the era.««
