Abstract

The article aims to focus on the demagogic use of rhetoric in TV-series. Utopia, Homeland, and Occupied, are thus examined in their characterising traits, being all constructed via the epistemic filter of a fear-eristics that often produces an oversimplified propaganda jargon linked to a racist imagology. How these digital, but ontologically guided, rhetorical strategies then work with populism is made clear in the essay.
