But if that all represented the old, the new came in the shape of Sauerland Promotions' glitzily
staged production values.
That's right, while other sitcoms fielded colorful and crazy characters designed to glitzily
delight millions of viewers, 'Seinfeld' was based on its star-author's 'ordinary' experiences with his similarly run-of-the-mill neighbors.
Unfortunately, other than images, glitzily
colored but not at actual size (no ratios provided), Pormann really has nothing to add to the stellar account which treats most of these books (and all the superscriptiones) by Judith Olszowy-Schlanger in Les Manuscrits hebreux dans lAngleterre medievale: Etude historique et paleographique (Paris and Louvain: Peeters, 2003).
The disaffectation of the family, the purposefully isolated life of the Madrid suburbs, and the socioeconomic reality of a glitzily
Europeanized, capitalized nation in decline reveal in this Generation X or Generation Kronen a core ennui that leads to misogyny, misanthropy, violence, and ultimately, and inexorably, to self-hatred.
