This chapter lays out the history of US gothic television in relation to the study’s concern with masculinity. It begins by challenging the critical emphasis on televisual realism as the test which gothic fails by exploring gothic television’s critiques of realist assumptions. It then turns to a general history of gothic television in terms of an ongoing concern with, and interrogation of, contemporary gender norms.
