Men with stakes builds on recent discussions of television Gothic by examining the ways in which the Gothic mode is deployed specifically to call into question televisual realism and, with it, conventional depictions of masculinity. Released from the mandate of realism to describe the world as it is supposed to be, television Gothic calls attention to the constructedness of gender - and therefore to the possibility of re-imagining men's agency, authority and the legitimated forms of knowledge with which men are traditionally associated (science in particular). In this context, after an overview of Gothic television's larger history, this study discusses in some depth seven series from the last two decades: American Gothic, Millennium, Angel, Carnivàle, Point Pleasant, Supernatural and American Horror Story.
