That’s a long-winded way of saying that recent discussions I’ve had with friends about Stranger Things always seem to lead back to the question of whether or not it would be better to release it in installments (be it weekly or something else). I know this sounds antithetical in the age of Netflix — and certainly for a Netflix show! — but again, because everyone binges through such shows in their own time and at their own pace, it makes real discourse about the shows much more complicated.
I've long been a believer that Netflix is getting it a bit wrong with their full season dumps. It seriously limits the conversation you can have about a show. It limits the amount of time the show stays relevant.
Also I'm not an MBA, but dragging shows out keeps subscribers with you for longer and gives them a better chance to find more content that keeps them with you. Seems like that would be good for business.
