Absolute Leseempfehlung! 

Das Phänomen des "Binge-watching"s (Komakucken?!) und "Hyperserien"


“I’ve always said that I don’t see my show as serialized so much as hyperserialized,” explains Vince Gilligan, creator of AMC’s Breaking Bad. “That is something that, honestly, I wouldn’t have been allowed to do 10 or 15 years ago.”

Während Serien wie Sopranos, The Wire oder Deadwood zuerst ihre Charaktere entwickelten und die Handlung erst an zweiter Stelle kam, entwerfen heutige "Hyperserien" Tableaus, die von einer zentralen Frage vorwärts getrieben werden - und noch größeres Suchtpotenzial haben:


"And that’s ultimately the biggest difference between the Hyperserials and the legendary shows that spawned them: a purer, more intense focus on one linear, series-long plotline. Hyperserials tend to do away with recaps, teasers, and exposition of any kind. They make even less sense when viewed out of order"
