Back in 1991, the English rock band Ned's Atomic Dustbin sang "Kill your television," and writers from Chuck Palahniuk to Roald Dahl to Raymond Chandler have voiced similar sentiments since the dawn of the televisual age. Despite the alleged vacuity of programming on the small screen, the discerning television fan will find many literary references beamed into their brains via their sets. One show that featured a main character who was a voracious reader was Gilmore Girls, which returned to Netflix last month, but there are others to look for, if you are so inclined.
