On the Journal:
‘The issue celebrates Television. This may not seem such a unique approach when celebration is such a common position for  indie titles, but Special Request isn’t loving today’s television. ‘Remember when the only screen you looked at was your television?’ asks editior Josh Jones in his intro letter. This is a celebration of television then, when every family sat down to the same shows at the same time with no chance of watching on delay or suffering twitter spoilers. When watching TV was a core activity rather than another way of accessing more stuff.’
