No problems with that one. I have dropped series just because they are released weekly and I got caught up with other things in the meantime. And besides, just because they are out all at once it doesn't mean you have to marathon them.



Watched cobra kai s2, a bit disappointed it got more formulaic and amped up the forced drama.

Especially because many episodes end with cliffhangers...

I might watch some extra 20min episodes but when it comes to 45mins, no amount of cliffhangers can make me marathon. I might watch a few straight but then I'll go do something else.

If I had watched Game of Thrones on HBO I would have inbedded an ax into the screen by now because there's a cliffhanger every other episode.

I just finished the 4th season. I'm watching ~4 episodes per week.

I'm curious if people are for or against companies releasing an entire season's worth of material at once.  

I'm so against it.  Part of the fun of a good television show is talking about it and theorizing and speculating as each episode comes out.  All of that is squandered though when it's just dumped all at once.  When it comes out every week it gives you time to digest it and think about it.

You know, a lot of great novels from 19th century were also published as serials in weekly magazines or even newspapers. By your logic, today, we are not reading them as intended and missing out all the fun of speculating on whatís going to happen next.

Itís fun to imagine people speculating about Raskalnikov killing the old lady though.

You can still watch it in your own stride, since no one is forcing you to gobble it up in one rush. Definitely preferable.

Your point fails.

Having the waiting period imposed on you by the author/network is what makes it suspenseful. Pacing yourself isn't at all the same.

Yes, not everyone appreciates freedom, and some even enjoy their slavery.

Babble babble babble. You have no arguments.

People who enjoy waiting from week to week lose the sense of suspense by not joining with millions of other people waiting for the newest episode. It's a community experience. Having an entire season at your fingertips and purposely pacing yourself to try to draw it out isn't.

The millions you are talking about are called sheeple.

And you are generalzing in an utterly unfounded way. You really think, the people twittering for "Save Lucifer" won't enjoy Season 4 now, because it's on Netflix?

Admit it - you are just mentally WEAK!

lol, that's an interesting point.

btw I think being forced to wait week to week is categorically different from pacing yourself because everybody is on the same page.  The social aspect greatly enhances the experience IMHO.  

If movies, tv, etc... didn't exist then everybody would be talking about serialized novels and I'd probably be in favor of having those come out periodically instead of all at once as well.  From what I remember reading and discussing Dicken's serialized novels were part of the social milieu of his era[sic?].

I don't need an "argument" because you have no point and you didn't even make one. You just admitted to being addicted to the regular network policy which forces you to organize YOUR life the way THEY see fit, and you dare try to sell that as being "suspenseful".

That's just pathetic in a wussy way - total surrender to heteronomy.
Shameful.

Can't we all just accept that JJ is right and move on?

Started watching Lucifer s4 and it feels good to see a continuation. I liked first couple of seasons but the third was actually great!

That's the right attitude.

Although ... you know, it's not that I'm right, it's just that blizz is wrong. There is nothing suspenseful in this artificial program schedule - or in commercial breaks in the course of an episode. And the fact that the streaming networks are flourishing shows that people LOVE having control over the way they watch a season.
