dc.description.abstractQuality Television is a genre that prioritises realism and cultural distinction. Since 2010, US Quality TV has increasingly incorporated fantastical elements such as magic, monsters and space travel. The central distinguishing feature of Quality Telefantasy is the presentation of fantastical elements in a realistic manner, as in Game of Thrones, The Walking Dead, Westworld and the Marvel/Netflix superhero series. The commercial and critical success of Quality Telefantasy has broadened popular taste cultures.
