Re: Star Trek: 5/17/2013 Into Darkness
said by Kearnstd:I agree with it being easier, but I've also found that a series that doesn't have some overall "big picture" story arc doesn't hold my attention for more than a few episodes.
It is easier to gain viewers too when a show can be watched at any point.
If every episode of a series is a stand-alone story, with no connection to the rest of the season, I don't feel the need to keep watching unless the writing makes each episode very entertaining. Not many shows have that.
I pretty much need a continuing storyline.
