In the recent years I watched a lot more TV shows than feature films. I don’t know exactly why it happened, but I guess some of the reasons below might have been of influence:
- Easier to consume. TV shows are generally shorter, which allows them to easier fit our busy schedule.
- Characters you learn to love or hate. Each TV show nowadays has a charismatic leading character, whom you love or love to hate. Then you a hooked.
- Season long arcs. Apart from the main narrative of each episode, there is often at least a six-month-long arc, which turns the show into a puzzle, where each episode is a piece that perfectly fits together with the rest.
It’s far from the full list, but enough for me.
