    Great, I already forgot what happened so far, I hope they're going to pull a "previously" segment, because I don't feel like rewatching all the episodes.

    They already did a gratuitous amount of these every episode. Chances are there'll be enough here to get you back up to speed.

    With this and Witcher season 3 dropping this summer, seems I finally have a reason to sign back up for Netflix. :V

    Are they touting this as a "Season 2" or not? We know there are 24 episodes.

    Everyone is reporting it as Season 2. Including WildBrain.

    I seriously don't understand their logic with that.
    Just because the show comes in portions, they call each of it a "season"? Go figure -_-

    Unfortunately, even anime has done that before...and it still makes zero sense to me...

    Well that's just asinine.

    Also a missed opportunity to refer to it as "Act 2".
     
  16. Yet, Arcane did it anyway lol.

    "New season" is more marketable than "the second third of a season we cut into pieces to build up more hype while not paying for more than 1 season". I sincerely hope nobody here is surprised that Netflix is resorting to dishonest tactics.

    I won't disagree Netflix sucks, but what exactly is dishonest here? It's not like they save money by ordering one bigger batch of episodes rather than two smaller ones that add up to the same thing or anything like that. You're getting the same amount of content.

    I'd argue it's at least a little misleading in terms of narrative structure. Personally, I expect watching a "season" of something to be satisfying. It can be part of a larger story, sure, but it usually has some focus it revolves around that concludes or meaningfully progresses by the end of that batch of episodes. There's some amount of closure, even if there's clearly plot left to happen or a dreaded cliffhanger. (If we're not just talking something purely episodic, of course.)

    Sonic Prime's first 8 episodes, to me, did not achieve that. I don't feel like I watched a complete arc of a story. I feel like the cable went out partway through a marathon.

    But for that, it was only 9 episodes released in thirds a week apart from each other. Also...

    Arcane also ended up following something like this. First part is essentially its own movie with the second and third roughly leaving off in ways that at least give something to look forward to.
