The other huge problem they have is the standard one all dramas have right now:Duwango wrote: ↑Thu Nov 02, 2017 7:37 pmThe biggest problem with Netflix shows is that they insist in bottlenecking their series' to 8-to-10 episodes per season. Such format is nothing short of overbearing and it's easy to detect whether a series has a hard time developing it's characters or getting much further with the story because of it. Stranger Things is most glaring example of this, although it's hardly the only problem the show has.
Anyway, back to the thread topic.

-the entire fucking show is one story, often made up as they go along
-this means you can't watch just one episode and it encourages people to give up on the show if you don't have 40 fucking hours to spend keeping up with repetitive bullshit
-most of the conflicts are soap opera tier trash like somebody cheated on their wife and someone else found out, or somebody is emotionally blackmailing somebody else to do something bad, like whore themselves out. The most extreme case is "muh rape plotz" where somebody gets raped and then covers it up because they're fucking retarded, like Sons of Anarchy did
-retarded political sperge in general, where every show has to be a commentary on muh current year. I'm not so much bothered by the fact that it's always shitlib as the fact it's always an opinion with very little nuance, arguing against cartoonish strawmen
-each episode is a fucking HOUR LONG. This doesn't seem like a problem until you realize one season is at least 10-15 episodes, often more, and this isn't "tv hour" when I say an hour. No, an hour in this case means 55 minutes. I don't have fucking 55 minutes to sit down and watch ONE PART in a THREE HUNDRED EPISODE STORY, I mean jesus fuck get your shit together
The solution to this is bring back Star Trek, Columbo, Poirot and Matlock-style serialization. Show episodes that you can watch out of sequence with two and three-parters to break up the formula. The best x-files episodes were the monster of the week ones. Nobody cares about smoking asshole and the alien plot told over 7-9 seasons.
