all 5 seasons of “breaking bad” is about 60 hours of content. the writing needs to be able to keep a cohesive and forward moving plot; the characters need to have identities that can build and grow without losing core identities.

a tv show needs the viewer to come back 13 weeks in a row

these are things that shift importance from the director to the writers

TV shows have natural breaks or jump in story and placement; directorial artistry can change without upending the show….but the characters and the plot need to be consistent
