Re: I soured on this article as soon as the writer said
I actually took that Berkeley class for about two weeks before dropping out. I do think pop culture is deserving of legit scholarly critique, but the class drew exclusively from one really trite mass-market paperback, and the discussion was about what you would expect from a room of undergrads.
It's worth noting that The Simpsons and Philosophy was not an official course, but a student-run elective for students who needed one more course credit but didn't have the time to take on a full-time class.
