These are issues that audiences are left to consider long after the final climatic episode has come to an end. In this way, the genre has tapped into some of the essential elements that make contemporary television drama so deeply engaging, particularly suitable for a world of video on demand and DVD boxsets that enable viewers to watch whenever and wherever they like. Now that we can enjoy television as we can read a book (anytime, anywhere and for any length of time), it is no surprise that the ‘small screen novel’ has finally arrived. Nordic Noir has been instrumental in shaping both its form and content, helping TV drama to adapt to the unique conditions of this new broadcasting age. Bibliography. Agger, G.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
