Radu Luchian(ov): Pastime: Commentary
On TV Series

Piece of my correspondence with link outTony Birch

Awww, Tony...

I just read your "Sequels don't work" comment and I strongly disagree. Here are 2 counterexamples:

Action: there's a long-winded background story behind the piecemeal action in each episode; the topics explored span the gamut of human imagination, passions, emotions, fears. Let me paraphrase the opening words of Outer Limits. In classical drama there's mainly "one image (point) driven to crystal clarity". Modern series "flood our senses (with intertwining sub-stories and sub-sub-stories)"


... and I've only skimmed the surface :)
