Extending popular television shows
There are many successful television shows that continue producing more seasons. Some fans will continue watching no matter what, but producers can compromise quality for the sake of further profit. At what point do TV shows need to end, so that viewers do not feel obligated to keep watching a show simply because there are more episodes available.
Western films directed by women
‘The Power of the Dog’, directed by Jane Campion, has received numerous nominations and accolades, and is another example of a recent film in the Western genre made by a female director. Chloe Zhao’s ‘The Rider’ and Kelly Reichardt’s ‘Meek’s Cutoff’ are other recent examples. Jordan Kisner’s article ‘The Western Rides Again’ delves into some of these recent adaptations. I’m interested in the staying power of the genre and figuring what, if anything, the genre has left to give us in new iterations.
