Ridiculous and bizarre from Amazon to choose to drop 3 and then do the other 5 weekly. Why not 4 and 4, or double bill and then 6? Especially when the first season dropped complete as well.
@Tom Davies I think you hit the nail on the head, though maybe unintentionally; my Wife just pointed out that the first two seemed to be setting up for the rest. We haven't watched the third, but if it is like you said, it needed the first three all together to properly set the stage, like those twice as long season opener episodes that some weekly series do, or at least used to.Throughout the first two episodes, the show seems to spin its wheels more than a little whenever the group of superhero killers are on screen. Only with the third episode does it feel confident enough to start to change the status quo.
I always use the Web interface to search for things, save anything I fancy to the watchlist, and then it is there on tha App ready to look at
The Mandalorian has a lot to answer for.I don’t mind the weekly release, it gives me something to look forward to after work on Fridays for a bit.
I like Disco but it was the Mandalorian which showed the benefit of extending user subscriptions over the lifetime of a series. Apparently the CBS All Access streaming service did get a bump, but Disney+ subscriptions got a lot more out of it. To the point where once the series was over, the number of Disney+ subs measurably decreased. There are a number of reasons why it was so successful, the first decent Star Wars in a while yada yada. But the number one reason was of course Baby Yoda.Star Trek Discovery is weekly release as well
Is it more to do with them may be not having much content coming up and need to spread it out?Yeah, they've lost the plot with this one for sure.
Before I watched I was guessing that it would be like a 3 episode mini-arc but no. Not really. I genuinely can't fathom the thinking behind it.
Disagree. Amazon specific output has always been limited. But generally higher quality than rhe churn out bunch. And you get free shipping, Twitch Prime... Have a look at the 97c movies right now - 1917 in UHD is one of them on Amazon.de right now. You might hate Bezos but it is not the worst deal.Is it more to do with them may be not having much content coming up and need to spread it out?
