    Making a distinction between ‘movies’ and ‘films’ is as senseless as the distinction between ‘comics’ and ‘graphic novel’ it is largely a pretension, a moving target that is basically meaningless, designed to elevate one favored piece over another piece viewed as ‘less than’. One man’s ‘movie’ is another man’s ‘film’. Acquisition is pretty much meaningless as well. 99.99% of the audience doesn’t know or care whether their moving picture was acquired on celluloid or silicon.

    As for music if it is recorded and compiled I consider it a record or an album, and use the terms interchangeably, regardless of format. TV is TV whether broadcast, cable, Netflix or other distribution. If it’s told in installments (serialized or not), or is released in ‘series’ or ‘seasons’ and doesn’t have a theatrical release it’s TV.

    Really good episode, but can I actually champion the 13 episodes a season? With a more limited number of episodes, it should force writers to cut out the filler, and have every episode be important. True Detective & Fargo both proved this can work. While shows that have 20+ episodes a season can be bogged down and paced very poorly causing viewers to lose interest. I enjoy a great experience, where I’m in and done. Comedies that have worked well with this Fawlty Towers, Spaced, Mission Hill, etc. For a network like FX, by having 13 episodes a season, they can keep interest up (assuming the writing is good) throughout the year, and not have dead space in the summer like most networks do.

    My train ride ended just before the Clevinger interview. That gets to be my go-to-work listening for tomorrow here in Tokyo. Which leads me to my real comment. The comic system in Japan keeps getting mentioned and it sounds like y’all are saying that collected editions are put out instead of single issues like in the States. Which is true and I think I remember hearing Stephen say he would prefer to see more US comics makers move to mainly putting out trades as well.

    But I was wondering if y’all would like to see the the other side of Japanese comics done: the thick, cheap anthologies that puts out the newer material before it is collected into trades for a particular title. Which I guess would be that week’s comics on newsprint before titlth everything in the DC/Marvel universes before title trades come out. Or perhaps a monthly Avengers anthology, for example, featuring all the Avengers titles before the trade of All New Avengers Underwater comes out.

    I fall into the ‘netflix is a network’ camp because they have branched into original series that are exclusive to their brand. I have both the streaming and DVD plans because some things I can only get via streaming and others I can only get by DVD. Cleverly, they figured out a way to compel you to get both. Can’t wait for Daredevil.

    Lovin’ it guys! I started listening to Critical Hit but have since started listening to most of your podcasts. Keep up the good work!
