It takes a heck of a long time to view one of those multi-season TV series.
Who has time for binge watching even the highest quality productions?
Today’s invention is a new way to watch an entire box set’s worth in an evening. Ok, so you miss out on most of the subtlety, but you certainly get all of the drama in one massive hit.
Series editors already expend massive amounts of effort in putting together the ‘previously on’ sections to introduce each episode. The idea is to stitch all of these together to make a single, super-cut rapid-view summary film.
At say 30 seconds per episode and say 100 episodes, that works out at 50 minutes of high octane entertainment.
At least enough to be able to discuss the whole thing around, say, a barbecue with your paesani.
