      I'm not a huge fan of the 'One episode One story' format with TV dramas. They just always feel rushed and generally end up not being believable. You can get away with it in comedy shows, but not in dramas. Blue Bloods is one the biggest culprits for that, and I gave up on the show because of it. I also gave up on Person of Interest a few episodes from the end of season three for that same reason. The Blacklist is another one that always felt too rushed, and I'd had enough after six episodes of season one. It would have been an excellent show if they had a full season story arc. I never get the 'I can't wait for the next episode' feeling with the 'One episode one story' format, and I love getting that feeling.

      ^^ For me there's a big difference between a US procedural type show with a crime and a resolution in 40 mins plus adverts and, say, Hinterland, which has a single story in 90 mins and much more engaging.

      I like a mixture of some shows with single stories and some with long arcs (or combination). I loved the earlier "24" for that 'cant wait until next episode' feeling, but then there were always parts of the story that became redundant by the end and I didn't like that. This isn't helped by the "write it as we go" method that 24 and some other US shows adopt.
