Television shows us 

Nothing

Everything

All at once

Between the banal

And sublime,

There is this

Traffic light

Tops:

Lost

X-Files

Deadwood

Mad Men

And I’m waiting for the last one.

All of the above contained the elements:

Cliffhanger act breaks (actually not deadwood/mad men but their music cue outros and scene dialogue were impeccable so samesies-almost. The use of stings in Lost was simply genius. I hope Star Wars Dec 18 is no clover field by comparison.

There are other shows: the sopranos, xena,  fargo, true detective, game of thrones, breaking bad, the love boat, hill street blues and Sherlock to name a few. However, what sets those apart – xfiles/lost/madmen/deadwood is cohesiveness of characters.

That’s key to the story I plan to tell
