The binge release model killed media. There's no time to digest anything. Part of the fun was discussing things and theorizing about would happen next with other fans.

Releasing a series all at once completely kills that and results in good shows being forgotten because everyone watches them in one sitting so it all blurs together instead of letting each episode stand on its own

      All humans like socializing. It's how we evolved as a species. Humans have to socialize to survive.

      Socializing with my friends about shows we liked was part of the fun. The binge model completely killed that. Can't discuss or speculate shit with my friends or other people online if it's all released at once

      It's one of the reasons I've completely checked out of modern media, it's not as fun as if I can't talk about it with others

        Start a homosexualy book club with you middle aged female friends. I'm not waiting months for the conclusion of an interesting story just because some anachronistic subsection of the population wants to go back to water cooler shows. The entire concept of streaming was meant to eliminate that bullshit. Are you a fricking Prime ad executive? You gauging how long after the pandemic you're gonna get away with trickle feeding already completed episodes to the public to prolong their subs to your service? Or are you just a fool?

        Binging is the equivalent of the consumer meme.

        You just consume without taking the time to think about what you're consuming.

        If all you think about is memes, you having nothing of value to say. And if you can't comprehend plot and meaning in realtime, you're probably a fricking frogposter.

                It's an example of how to start a discussion. A non-moron would be able to take that template and modify it to what aspect you want to discuss.

                It's called proper spacing, they teach it in school so that your writing isn't an unreadable wall of text.

                They teach it in school so the instructor has empty space to add corrections and notes. You misunderstood this because you have a learning disability. Normal people can read and comprehend lines of text next to each other. That's how books are published.

                Cartoons stopped being seen as "kids stuff" decades ago, you fricking moron.

Anyone stupid enough to out themselves as a weeb was of the atrocious fat autistic moron variety, and they weren't worth talking to. Fast forward to today. CR made anime easier for the masses, now Cinemaphile is filled with moronic children who can't string a sentence together, anime discussion is absolutely dead in the west. I still watch a bunch of shows every season. The show itself is fun, not shitposting about it with idiots.

                This isn't true. If something can omitted from a story without significantly changing it, it's usually cut from the story early in development.

                Well, for one, sex scenes are rare. We're in the most sexless era of entertainment ever. Second, they usually don't last long and are only there to bring the tone of the story back to where it needs to be.

                But general, sex scenes are non-existent outside of full-on porn these days.

                A good story IS one that's emotionally compelling. If I have no emotional investment or attachment to it, I'm not going to watch it. Simple as. That's what stories are designed to; get you emotionally invested.

                I'd never watch something at 3x speed because that's too fast. You're not taking time to digest and form an opinion on what you're watching, you're just mindlessly consuming.

                How do you know you have no emotional attachment to it without watching at least part of it? And if you stop watching thing after a while, you just ommit the story. Meaning you do exactly what I do with watching on 3x speed or ommiting boring parts.
                In other words you are just full of shit but trying to sound profound and make watching movies somekind of profound study instead of what it is. An entertainment for plebs.

    binge model is superior. forcing your series to end on a cliffhanger every episode just doesn't hold up on a rewatch: it's just plain goofy. also it creates fatigue when people are just spouting the same theories and discussing the same tired plot points from a recent episode and these discussions carry on for months as the season slowly drops (if they don't take a mid season break). Better to just discuss the story as a whole and if it was good, people will keep talking about it for a long time.

                It's not about processing it, it's about digesting and forming an opinion. The binge model makes it impossible to form an option on each individual episode because it blurs together. It kills the intended pace

                You don't get to decide what a "cheap trick" is.

                >a compelling story and interesting characters

                This doesn't mean anything because there are two kinds of stories; plot-driven, and character-driven.

                In plot-driven stories, the plot is the focus and the characters don't need to be fleshed out because they're just tools to move the plot along. While in a character-driven story, the plot is just an excuse to have the characters do shit and develop, it doesn't need to be anything spectacular as long as the characters are entertaining.

                When writing a story, you need to choose either plot or characters to focus on, trying to do both results in an unfocused mess.

                This is a disingenuous argument because some shows are designed to be binged and some are not. Modern shows are written with the binge format in mind, but everying written pre-Netflix was written with a week to week release in mind.

                The former don't work when you watch them week to week, and the latter don't work when you binge them, because they weren't designed to be watched that way.

                Yes. All stories are written with the intention of making you feel a certain way.

              Things that don't work stop being used pretty quickly, that's how media has always worked

      This is a disingenuous argument because some shows are designed to be binged and some are not. Modern shows are written with the binge format in mind, but everying written pre-Netflix was written with a week to week release in mind.

      The former don't work when you watch them week to week, and the latter don't work when you binge them, because they weren't designed to be watched that way.

    Well, it's safe to say he's run out of arguments (or not, because that would imply he had any in the first place) since he's resorted to just copy/pasting my posts.

      You're the one that's done nothing but repeat yourself. You have no actual arguments, you just resort to ad hominems and childish insults. I can tell you're underage, because adults don't argue like this. Adults are polite and show respect to the person they're talking to, even if they disagree with them.

      You need to grow out of this immature behavior of yours, because you wouldn't last a day in the real world with this attitude.

        An opinion by definition can't be wrong.

        In the real world, adults don't act like this. Adults are polite and respectful. They don't toss out insults when people disagree with them, that's what children do.

    binge releases synchronize discussion leading to deeper and more fun discussion on web forums like Cinemaphile

    apparently only low quality posters like periodic format as evidenced by their low quality posts ITT. like half the thread is "ur a woman, ur gay, u have emotion? ur woman. u r*ddit spacing. I hate spaces."

    If someone's only response to your argument is childish insults and/or copy/pasting your posts, then your argument is correct.

    Good job, OP.

      Refusing to binge is the equivalent of the consumer meme.

      You just consume without taking the time to think about what you're consuming.

      False equivalence, books are not a visual medium. They're written to be enjoyed at your own pace.

      That doesn't apply to visual media. They're written with a certain pace in mind and completely fall apart when viewed at any other pace.

        The hypothesis and discussion was part of what made the shows good.

        If there's nothing to discuss or speculate about, the show is a waste of time and not worth watching

          not always true - breaking bad writers had no idea where they were going, so you ended up with 8 hours of kleptomaniac b***h with no connection to the main story
          enjoyed those 8 hours of kleptomania story and the discussions of it?

    Television was better than the homosexual ass internet. Frick looking for shit to watch online is exhausting. Nothing beats sitting back on a sofa or couch and just channel surfing until you found something good to watch...frick television back in the day was literally life..I mean a whole ton of great memories in my life came from watching a TV show or movie...u just can't replicate that anymore...it almost gets me teary eyed.

    There’s nothing stopping you from talking to people about stuff that was binge watched.
    >yeah but I want to talk about the same show for six months!
    Then watch one episode a week and talk about it that way. That wasn’t hard.

        Start a homosexualy book club with you middle aged female friends. I'm not waiting months for the conclusion of an interesting story just because some anachronistic subsection of the population wants to go back to water cooler shows. The entire concept of streaming was meant to eliminate that bullshit. Are you a fricking Prime ad executive? You gauging how long after the pandemic you're gonna get away with trickle feeding already completed episodes to the public to prolong their subs to your service? Or are you just a fool?

            If cliffhangers were a bad thing, they wouldn't have lasted this long. That's the way writing works. Things that work continue to be done, things that don't work stop being done.

            There's a reason why mystery novels with shitty twists like "the butler did it" are a thing of the past

              I've actually read Agata Christie and Doyle. And it beats most of nowadays productions, be it books or series. That's the problem. These things are classics because they are good even now. Most of things produced right now will be forgotten day later. Even if it isn't binge watched.

    >everyone watches them in one sitting so it all blurs together instead of letting each episode stand on its own
    They should just shorten these shows to the 90m of decent content that's in them and release them as movies.

    • 1 week ago

      Yeah, that doesn't work because the "good content" doesn't work without the slower-paced content. Pacing is important. A story moving too fast is just as big as a problem as it dragging itself out. Balance is key. If the story moves too fast, the audience gets burnt out and has no time to process one plot points before the story move on to the next one.

      If you have no emotional investment in a story, then it's a bad story.

      Why the frick would anyone watch something they're not invested in? You watch things to be entertained, not for "muh intellectualism", that's what books are for.

    I really don't fricking care that some of you want to wait every week and discuss every little shitty detail in a single episode. Nothing is stopping you from pacing yourself anyway. But no, everyone has to enjoy things the exact same way you enjoy things and there can be no other choice in the matter.
