Definition for the Lay Folk

Series: The run of a certain television program, defined by a single title, divided into seasons and episodes. Sometimes known as a television show.

Season: The annual run of a television series, making up an average of 15-25 episodes, usually airing on television during the fall and winter.

Episode: A single slot of time that one series has per week, either running roughly 22 mins for a half hour episode, or roughly 43 mins for an hour episode, commercials not included.

These will be the definitions I will use in later posts.

I know, I know.

Here's the thing. I originally intended for this blog to be about movies, and to review them. But I've recently rethought this, changing the motif to T.V. instead. The reason? I enjoy television more than movies. Don't get me wrong, I love movies. But the whole premise of T.V. series intrigues me. You get to explore more of the story over a 7 year period, then in a two hour movie. The characters evolve much more over the time, then they would in a movie. And if you enjoy a T.V. series, you get experience numurous of new episodes, again and again, instead of watching the same movie over and over again. So, from here on out, this blog will be primarily a review of T.V. series. (I may every now and then review an exceptional movie) so, I hope you enjoy!
