In TV series, narrative strategies are not merely a means of shaping the overall aesthetics of the audiovisual narrative; there is also a dynamic relationship between form and content. Transgressing the traditional confines of narrative theory, the chapters in the present volume address the question of how form, content, and function intersect in selected series - an approach that offers new insights both for media studies and for narrative theory.In the context of an extensive systematic overview of the possibilities of applying narratological concepts to a study of TV series. ten case ontributions explore in depth the effects created by the use of innovative audiovisual means of storytelling in Buffy the Vampire Slayer, Angel, Blackadder, The X-Files, Star Trek, Twin Peaks, 24, Die zweite Heimat, Ellen, Sex and the City, and Berlin, Berlin.
