Forums - Movies & TV - MId-season breaks. America why??? :(

I am british and so i dont often have  to cope with mid-season breaks :D but after finally catching up with the walking dead (which i love) and i find out the next episode is in february FFFFFUUUUU!!!! What is the point, youve filmed the series so its all there, nothing more to be done and now you just randomly decide to make a massive 3-4month break in the middle? Thats like watching an hour of a movie and then just stopping in the middle and saying "right see the next half in 2 weeks time" What is up with that? America explain yourself!

They've started doing it with Doctor Who now as well. Something that should make the writers reconsider this is that the second half of the series was much worse that the first. Contributes to a list of reason as to why I probably won't be watching the next series.



yh i love doctor who and i think its stupid to put mid season break in.

I think the reason is because no one is really watching tv at that time.Very busy time of year. So why waste showtime and advertising dollars when less people are going to watch? Kind of like Summer time. Things are changing with summer though as more and more new shows are airing during the summer months.

They started doing it because of the American airing of the show, they want to cater to that audience as well.

I'm an American, and I feel your pain. Mid-season breaks are stupid.



Yeah I feel the same way about Community. I don't even know when the next episode will air



Does seem rather silly, and breaks up the flow of the series. I thought more people were watching tv this time of year? In the UK I think Christmas day is the highest day of ratings

But seeing as its a British programme, why dont they leave it how it is for us? I'm happy for BBC America to split it in two if thats what Americans like by why ruin it in the show's home country? Anyway Doctor Who has being going in America for several years and this is the first one they've done it. And as I said before, the show fell flat on its face in the second half of the series.

This year was really the first real year in America, despite it being aired in America in the past. 

I hate breaks, given I can understand christmas breaks, however spring -> fall breaks are stupid as hell.
