Hello, world. I’m MacDara Conroy, and this is my blog.

The downside of TV’s golden age

"By focussing on series arcs rather than individual episodes, today’s acclaimed series don’t reward the traditional once-a-week viewer. Any given hour — [AV Club writer Ryan] McGee calls them 'installments' rather than 'episodes' — is judged primarily on how it moves along the bigger storyline." I love shows like The Wire, but I've been complaining about this for the longest time. #link
