‘It Made Us Nervous’ : Alison Bell on Taking The Letdown to a ‘Darker and Harder’ Place Bridie Jabour , 2019 single work column
— Appears in: The Guardian Australia , 29 May 2019;

'As season two of her parenting comedy premieres, Bell says the scene she’s proudest of is the show’s darkest – and its funniest.'

'The Drama of It : Television Comedy's New Aesthetic' James McNamara , 2018 single work essay
— Appears in: Australian Book Review , June-July no. 402 2018; (p. 34-36)

'Since I wrote about the golden age of television for ABR’s first film and television issue in 2015, the medium has evolved. Streaming has roared to prominence, with online services like Netflix disrupting television’s form and market as dramatically as cable did to broadcast television in the early 2000s. But where the stars of the cable era were dramas – great, brooding epics of American anti-heroes – the foul-mouthed stars of the streaming era are increasingly its comedies, which are delivering some of the most poignant stories on screen.'  (Introduction)
