BCTV Daily Dispatch Editorial: Netflix Should Reduce the Binge Drop Cord

If you''re on Netflix these days, you''re wishing you were back in the "simpler days" when you were "just" being slapped for the Dave Chappelle/LGBTQ community controversy. That''s why the streaming service has been doing everything anyone who thought they were "too big to fail" during a period of mortality. On Friday, we learned that the streamer was also expanding its options when it comes to unscripted shows, stand-up specials, and other live events.

So, did anyone know the one obvious option that hasn''t been put on the market at least partially? Sure, this is why I''m not saying get rid of binge releases entirely, though shows like HBO Max''s and Amazon''s offer evidence that weekly or hybrid releases (first few eps are dropped at first, then the remaining drop weekly) are the way to go. Instead, imagine how spectacular that midseason cliffhanger will be to fans.

Why not give it a try, but Netflix? You''re already flinging 99 other things around the wall to see what sticks, so what''s more?
