OUAT returns tonight and there promises to be much action and adventure this season. The search for Henry in Neverland will be the focus for a big part of the season. Let’s see what happens with our favorite fairy tale heroes and villains.


When TV Shows Are Stuck In A Storyline Ditch


Some TV shows go on and on in a storyline without moving it forward. Its like they are keeping us mired down as a audience, knowing that we aren’t going anywhere. Some shows need to keep things moving because the attention span and patience of some audiences is very small. People’s time is precious and its good to honor that when a writer puts words into flesh.

We need to know that there will be a endgame in a story and before introducing us to something new, resolve what you have begun in a orderly fashion. So many plot lines go on too long. Keeping your audience sometimes keeping things simple but not too easy as to insult our intelligence.Keep it short so that we are gripped to our seats. Make it good too.

I would love Revenge, Once Upon A Time and perhaps to a small extent Downton Abbey to learn from this.

Perhaps our TV seasons run too long these days. I would be in favor of shorter seasons like they do in the UK. Give your audience a break every now and then, leave them wanting more. Just a thought. What do you think?
