BoJack Horseman "Stop The Presses" Review - AVClub

AVClub: One of the topics that comes up when streaming services drop an entire season at once is the discussion of whether the format is going to kill the idea of the individual episode. In the age of binge watching, creators know that their audience is likely to go to the next episode almost immediately, and as a consequence the idea of singular episodes of a show that stand up above the fray are less important than building a whole story. Vulture’s Kathryn VanArendonk wrote a piece just last week arguing for the importance of those episodes: “For a brief period of time, we get new rules, all the usual priorities shift, and we have to look at our well-known characters with new eyes. They work our engagement muscles, forcing us to pay a bit more attention. They can be TV at its best, and they’re always TV at its most fundamentally TV—using the space of one episode to play around with a new idea.”

The story is too old to be commented.
