I actually prefer the weekly model
yeah, same here.
would you both want ALL streaming services to do that going forward though?

Cause with me it depends

Netflix did it for that rap reality show and I did not mind

Obviously the Last Dance worked perfectly

Wu Tang I think should have been the whole season but I never missed an episode, but I DID forget a few times and honestly if it was pandemic time I think it might have gotten LOST in the barrage of available content.

I feel it worked PERFECTLY for the Mandalorian it became appointment viewing and a family thing

HOWEVER

I also like the ability and convenience of watching more than one episode if I am so inclined especially since I'm paying for it.

And certain shows just LEND themselves to watching back to back to back..

i watched the Boys and the Tick like that

and I wasn't even PLANNING to.

So the question is if THOSE SHOWS were every week would have made sure to watch it THAT day?

I gotta think on that.

just depends on how much stuff i am watching at the time. I don't mind it either way. Like twilight zone came out yesterday and i am already on the last episode. Doom Patrol releases the first 3 episodes and i already watched 2. I do hate cliffhangers though, so if a whole season is available, i'm just gonna binge it.

I've gotten accustomed to having the whole season available on Netflix and AP. They aren't dependent upon ad revenue so I don't see what the upside is in doing a weekly serial as though they are looking for a ratings share.

I have cable and the weekly shows that I watch on there, I don't mind, but in between whatever night a particular show comes on (normally the weekend), I like being able to binge my streaming shows in between those nights.

I can live with it, but I'd prefer to have the whole season dump at once.

Pre Covid world I definitely would want them all to be weekly since I usually would have 10+ weekly regular shows from networks etc. that I watch besides maybe summer season where it'd be under 10 but still over 5. Now currently in this covid world I wouldn't mind the binge model since my weekly shows currently is like at an all time low of 4 with just The 100 on Wed, Harley Quinn on Fri, The Chi and black monday on the weekend so I've been binging shows that I didn't even get a chance to before on my regular weekly schedule

Wish I hadn't watched this. You should note that its a huge spoiler.
After watching the S2 clip I did some research on Black Noir and saw the same spoiler... Lol

I was like how this dude survive a blast like that? Lol....

I think the show will change it up...

Like Strormfront... is a man in the comics...

Only reason I say that is because the actor that plays Black Noir is Black...

I wonder with all the protests happening now and networks scated to offend etc how they gonna deal with stormfront?

She gonna sleep with Black Noir and kill herself when she finds out who he really is?

S2 of Harley Quinn just ended so i'm down to 3 weekly shows, thinking about checking out Stargirl and catching up since I've been hearing good things about it. I wasn't planning on watching it since I only watch The 100, the flash, and All American on CW now and didn't want to add more

I still have not watched the chi yet

Only watched 3 episodes of Stargirl

its great

I'm STILL playing catch up with the 100 I just started last month

I'm going to do a ranking soon on CW shows

but I watch them all if they superhero related

took me AWHILE to get thru Batwoman

it improved steadily and even had some really good episodes

but I wouldn't MISS it

the lead was NOT the right fit at all

I'm a flash diehard so I just watch it regardless

I truly ENJOY Legends its just FUN

EVERYONE tells me I will love All American

I will support Black Lightning to the end

i binged it on netflix. it's pretty good.

Stargirl gets better every week. Its already surpassed Flash and Batwoman.
Stargirl is a LEGIT SURPRISE

no one and I mean NO ON predicted it would be this good

surpassing Batwoman aint hard (although I STILL defend the brother on their and the asian girl and even Alice they are GOOD)

but I am a Flash fan and I can;t even defend some of this stuff

But Iris and her dad's wife are so freaking FINE I just can't criticize.
