"Jack Hilden on the tv-series that changes the view of dramaturgy"
"This is a kulturartikel which is a part of Aftonbladet's opinionsjournalistik."
"In Seinfeld there is an episode where Jerry and Elaine are together again. It is early in the series, but viewers have been told that they had previously been in a relationship. In this section, they are trying to develop a plan to be able to have sex but continue to be friends. But Elaine fall in love, and Jerry must decide if he wants to take it further, or if they cannot even manage to be friends. He comes to the conclusion that Elaine is a keeper – ”she’s as it as you get”. "
"the Episode's conclusion indicates that, from now on, they are a couple, who have decided for each other in the future. In the next section, it is like nothing has happened. The event can't be picked up, and neither sooner or later they are a couple in the series."
"I often think of that episode when I see the tv series today. Much has been said about the tv series era that is still in progress. These are, of course, not on the 22-minutersformatet as Seinfeld and other sitcoms, where a new problem presented each week, a resolution, and then left unchecked. The series with the greatest cultural impact is the lavish drama productions with the hour-long episode. A section can be as a feature film in itself, but must at the same time be able to follow the series anymore drama."
"At the time was the tv series a slaskprodukt, and the choices were much fewer. You saw it was offered. So it is not now."
"What a dream it must be for writers and directors. They can deep dive into characters in a way that was impossible before. Lower and raise the tempo without having to take into account to reach an immediate resolution. "
"In Breaking bad is a controversial section that is only about that a fly has got into the heroes' knarklabb, and they become obsessed with killing it. A chamber play is unexpectedly exciting, and that would be unthinkable in a feature film. Similarly, it is a dream for the viewers to be served the kind of character development."
"just a few years, Netflix total thrown about, from the films dominate to the tv-series is by far the largest genre, many of which are produced by themselves. The successful series going on season after season. Why would they not? You dig where the money is and the viewers are already on the hook. The emotional investment is made."
"I see The Americans, Breaking bad, The leftovers, both as a poison and like at the same time I don't really care about what happened. Rather, I do not remember what has happened. The threads are too many, too much has been going on for a long time, for that it should be possible to keep in head. The energy is devoted instead to what happens in front of one, just now. A contrast to how much time you actually devote to such a series, which rather ought to indicate a great deal of patience."
"the Character Salvatore Romano, played gay in the closet in Mad men. In the ninth episode of season three, he gets fired. The last that is seen of him is that he sneaks around in a park to meet other guys. Then there is an end. The person I got to know and care for in three seasons is gone, and next week is a new section. Clearly it stings, but equally clear is that I continue to look."
"Somewhere takes patience, however, eventually even the most hardened viewers. Lost hit the bottom of the box as a sensation, and the premise was clear: A plane crashes on a tropical island and no one knows what has happened. There is more than enough for a season, but not for sex. In succéns cycle included the need to continue, and at the end of the series was the audience degrading low."
"Stuart Heritage writes in The Guardian that it always looked the same. M*A*S*H and Star trek are examples of series been going on for ages, and there was as little chance for continuity then. But, he points out, too, at the time was the tv series a slaskprodukt, and the choices were much fewer. You saw it was offered. So it is not now."
"Game of thrones last season, recently had its premiere after a nearly two year long break. The only thing I remembered was that a dragon had destroyed the large iceberg."
"It's not necessarily a bad thing. Neuroforskaren Amanda Ellison wrote in an article from The Telegraph that a well-made, long tv-series is among the best gift one can give his or her brain. The complicated intrigues and the components that hook into each other forcing the brain to various parts to work together. In addition, you get a lovely dopamine - and seratoninkickar if you manage to understand everything."
"But consumption patterns are changing, and with them the expectation of what a story really is. The classic dramaturgical curve is in many series more like waves – they are shaped, turning in towards the beach, and shortly thereafter, a new."
"My reaction when a story peters out and is replaced becomes a sort of benevolent, turn the other cheek. Large parts of the second season of The leftovers revolved around the white-clad sect of The guilty emnant. They would take over and possibly destroy the small city of Miracle in Texas, which is the only city in the world been spared people's sudden disappearances, which is the series trauma. In the end succeeds also in the sect, they blow up the bridge, creating havoc and chaos."
"So will the first episode of season three. Not many minutes will be before a drone is sent against the sect, and delete them out. Häpp! Rarely has a resolution been clearer. The consequences that a continuation would impose, all you would have to deal with in order to keep the thread alive. Easier then to move the third season to Australia and start over, creating new doomsday scenarios. And as long as there is at least a microscopic link to the origin, so it works."
"It is impossible to defend yourself. For those in the know is the long tv-series, the ultimate conversation, at parties and in the lunchmatsalar."
"I don't remember a time when a novel, or barely even a movie had such an effect. There is no end. Before I had seen the Game of thrones, and all the others seemed to have done it, had I simply switch the company at the party where people talked about other things."
"But those who made the effort to comply with all the way, the reward is huge."
