Phuck that. I noticed that Westworld season 4 is out while blowed on the couch. So I'm like hell yeah.

Then noticed only 1 episode available.

So I'm definitely keeping my Netflix for a little while longer.

Binge format is fading away. Netflix fans used to complain when shows on other platforms came out week to week and now they're complaining that binge watching is bad cuz they ran through new seasons of Ozark and Stranger Things in one day.

Amazon, Apple, Hulu, etc do it right by releasing the first 2-3 episodes of the season and then going to week to week.

HBO is about to dominate again when the GOT spinoff starts.

Having someone on your site for, at minimum, 10 times over the course of 10 weeks rather than, on average, letís say 4 times over the course of a week. Itís why Netflix flirting with going away from binging with seasons broken down into separately released parts.

I personally like talking about the show in between episodes, so I donít fully hate the one episode a week formula

All that said, who got the best recap for seasons 1-3

Binging leads to customer churn. People will sign up for your service for a week and then cancel after they finish the show they want to see

If you release 10 episodes over 10 weeks then you're guaranteed to have the fans of a show subscribe for at least 3 months minimum.

I hate binge watching shows anyway. By the time I finish it I want to watch something else and can't find anything. I'd rather stretch a good show out. Builds anticipation for the next episode

They really don't have much left besides Strangers Things and Squid Game.

Stranger Things is almost over for the season and Squid Game isn't coming until 2023.

So I dunno what else will carry Netflix. True crime docs? Will they have another surprise hit like Tiger King or Queen's Gambit?

Their movies are kinda average. An Apple+ movie already beat Netflix to a best picture Oscar.

Who knows.

Nah it's the opposite. Netflix should make every show they have release over weeks. They need to stop the bleeding.

Even if the shows suck, they still have to trick people into not canceling.

That might be my most anticipated show after a Severance season 2 announcement date

HBO going this long without a zombie show is wild when you think about what THEY can do with the medium

It will work. Investors don't care about quality. All investors see is churn.

Somethings as simple releasing shows on a staggered schedule will k*ll a lot of churn immediately because of Social Media. Binging isn't good for Social Media.

Netflix would be better off if they did that...in my opinion. Appointment tv fair much better with social media and podcast.

Watch The Old Man on FX/Hulu - This show is the sh*t.

Also, Westworld has been super sh*tty bad for the last two seasons.

The Instant gratification generation needs that quick dopamine fix all the time so it makes sense the whole weekly episode thing is getting a bad rap

I like it though. Gives me something to look forward to and talk about amongst my peers.

I think it depends on the series
the Bear on hulu played 3 episodes at once then one a day then the last 3 all at once

An established series will likely be weekly
new series will likely released all at once to get reaction for a 2nd greenlight
