Writing for Film and Television. I love it. It's interesting seeing the different opinions each writing instructor has. And considering that they all have work of their own out there, it has all gotten them jobs so I guess it's just whatever works for the writer themselves. Also it's a lot of who you know to be honest.

Oh the entertainment industry is definitely a network thing. I work in post production and many jobs are due to friend’s of friend’s and so on and so forth. Good luck to you.

oh no I'm just saying that's why my instructors said 5 seasons instead of 4. Not saying you're wrong just indicating what I meant.

What are you going to school for? What kind of instructors? Just curious.

Even if ONCE could get a fifth season at this point, I don't think it answers the question about promotion for THIS season coming up. Granted, I only follow four blogs that continue to post about ONCE (and follow them for other fandoms), but I've seen nothing for the upcoming season on my dash. No ads on television. I seriously have no idea if it's started yet - or about to. That's not good PR. Have there been official photography this season? Haven't seen it...

I haven’t seen any official photography for this season either. I’ve seen people reblog the character items that have been ‘frozened’ but that’s it. Last season’s promo was pretty weak but this season it’s nearly non-existent. My mom is still going to watch the show and asked when it comes back because she hasn’t seen any commercials for it. Yikes…

5 seasons is when it hits the 100 mark usually. And that's why they said we need a five season plan for our television shows.

Uhhh huh. Did I not just say it’s normally 88-100 eps and it’s not a hard and fixed number?

You’re repeating yourself with no useful or new information. If your intent is to tell me I’m wrong, I’m sorry to inform you you’re failing.

William Shatner - Captain Kirk.  Voice of Reason.  Neal fan. 

DO YOU HEAR, A&E?!  CAPTAIN KIRK ORDERS YOU TO BRING NEAL BACK.  

I KNOW YOU ASSHOLES ARE TREKKIES.  THE CAPTAIN COMMANDS IT.

I wonder if William Shatner will be watching this season..

Hmm I wonder that too. Is he like the rest of us Firethieves and fed up? Haha

From what I hear around town (Tumblr Town that is), ABC network hasn’t put much effort into promoting the new season.

My theory? ABC doesn’t give two fucks. It’s in its fourth season which means they’ll be able to syndicate this show. If it gets good ratings and goes to s5? Yay…

You know it makes me giggle that A&E & co always got complaints that they don’t have any PoCs (which on a side note can I just say that I’m so flabbergasted by this wording… decades ago people were pissed at the word “colored” but now “people of color” is socially acceptable? I don’t understand society) and this season they go with the whole fairytale/Disney movie that has the whitest of white characters? I find it funny in that not-really-all-that-funny kinda way.

My instructors told me it was on the fifth season that they can syndicate tv shows. That's why most tv shows have a 5 season plan. And also why shows writing tends to go downhill after that.

I don’t know who your instructor is, but the number of episodes is normally between 88-100.

Actually it’s not even a hard and fixed number. But financially it makes sense.

4 seasons of a 22 episode season series is 88. Which means with that many episodes it’s much more profitable to syndicate. A show could have 79 episodes and still be syndicated (hello Star Trek). Or hell, a show with 14 episodes could get syndicated if it’s popular (nice to meet you Firefly).

4 seasons of a typical broadcast show (22 eps/season) is normally the guideline.

From what I hear around town (Tumblr Town that is), ABC network hasn’t put much effort into promoting the new season.

My theory? ABC doesn’t give two fucks. It’s in its fourth season which means they’ll be able to syndicate this show. If it gets good ratings and goes to s5? Yay for them, fine. If it doesn’t? No sweat off their back, it’s fine. They’ll still make money in reruns. I don’t think they care either way.
