Strong opinions, weakly held

Is the TV industry getting smarter?

This morning I noticed that the pilot for the new series Studio 60 on the Sunset Strip is available from Netflix and is, in fact, recommended for me. It looks like the TV guys are getting smarter. I actually pay attention to my recommendations, and putting new shows into the Netflix system is a smart way to get them exposure with people like me. Between making shows available on iTunes, creating mini-episodes of shows for the off-season, and now getting shows onto Netflix as soon as possible, it sure seems to me that TV is beating its competitors in music and film to the punch when it comes to becoming more Web-friendly. In the meantime, last time I went to the movies I was reminded no less than three times that it would be wrong to steal the movie I was paying to see. Maybe it’s just me, but the thought that went through my head was, “I could have stolen this instead of paying $8.50 to see something that’s probably mediocre?”

  1. I was so jazzed when I saw that the pilot was available through Netflix. At least 1/3 of my queue right now is TV (catching up on shows I never watched while they were on — like Alias).
