On the subject of a new showrunner, I'm worried that if AMC order a 4th Season larger than 16 eps the plots may become a bit thin. Having smaller runs is part of the attractiveness to non comic book viewers like me, does anyone agree? It was bucking the awful US tendency for 22 - 26 ep seasons? Also I view each block almost as a seperate season, so in my eyes 9 - 16 will be for me S5. Does anybody else agree, or for that matter disagree?
Well i'm good either way....
I like long seasons if they are done well... (basically because they last longer)
Also the budget would be affected for 22 episodes.
For the walking dead, I'd settle for 16 briliant episodes rather than 22 episodes with 5 or 6 brilliant episodes.
