Rios and Lin have found the perfect balance of scholarship and entertainment research. This will be a welcomed book for the classroom and for those looking for best practices in the much-needed areas of gender roles and identities, socio-economic “caste” systems, race, sexual and psychological violence, and cultural identities. The vast view of streaming and access to these media portrayals are valuable and furthers research, theoretical frameworks, and the overall knowledge within our discipline. The inclusion of social media usage and how the advancement of those watching “over the air” television series has expanded to a global realm really sits at the cornerstone of this important work. This is a must-read for those interested in intersectionality and the understanding of the many differences in our world today.
