In the coming years, there will be a shift toward what is now known as contextual computing. Always-present computers, able to sense the objective and subjective aspects of a given situation, will augment our ability to perceive and act in the moment based on where we are, who we’re with, and our past experiences. These are our sixth, seventh, and eighth senses.
So the reviews for Arrested Development are poor… but holy crap is that an amazing statistic.
Lets do the math. 30 million total subscribers * 10% * 15 episodes * 28 minutes per episode / 60 minutes = 21,000,000 hours of TV watched in one day.
And that’s ONLY the people that finished all the episodes. I’m sure there’s a long tail of the netflix subscriber base that watched only a couple episodes…. that’s crazy.
My own $0.02: after watching the first two episodes I was a little disappointed, but after watching 5 episodes I completely loved the new season. It’s very layered… if you want to get all the jokes you have to pay close attention to details you don’t quite grasp yet to fully enjoy the following episode. It’s clever. I rarely get to use my brain at all when watching a sitcom.
Content is king.
His next remark is great as well:
I see I am getting away from the question, but the question was not very interesting.
