How Netflix Made Watching TV Like Reading a Novel

The following is an excerpt from a new article by Allen Mitchum at PJ Media.

Comparing watching television to reading a book sounds ridiculous. Especially to those of us raised in a world where TV watchers are derided as couch potatoes and reading is deemed an enlightened activity. So I’m prepared for bibliophiles and even casual readers will take issue with the title of this post. But technology advancements and the improved sophistication and structure in television programming has turned watching TV into an experience very similar to reading a novel.


As an avid reader and author, it took me a while to fully appreciate this new phenomenon, though I’ve fully embraced it now as a regular video content consumer (see, Justified and Breaking Bad). In other words, I have, finally given into binge watching – the practice of consuming numerous episodes of a TV show in a short period of time. An activity that was once ridiculed, binge watching is now a social norm.


There are four primary factors for the rapid change in the consumption and format of TV programming that led to it resembling a live action novel. Each occurred independently, but combined, created the conditions necessary to set in motion the evolution...

TOP FIVE: Best Clive Cussler Books

This month's top five list is best Clive Cussler books. As one of the first action adventure authors that I read, Cussler has a special place on my bookshelf.

What that being said, I wasn't a huge fan of the Dirk Pitt Adventures novels post Atlantis Found. I read a few of the NUMA Files series books but never got that in to them. I've never read any of the books in the Oregon Files series or the Isaac Bell Adventures.

5. The Mediterranean Caper


4. The Sea Hunters: True Adventures With Famous Shipwrecks


3. Inca Gold


2. Sahara


1. Treasure

The 28 Pages in the News: New Plans to Declassify the 28 Pages

International Business Times is reporting that the U.S. House of Representatives may soon vote on a bipartisan resolution calling for the declassification of the infamous 28 Pages of the 9/11 Commission Report. Readers of the political thriller 28 PAGES are familiar with these redacted pages, which conceal the true involvement of the Saudi government in the 9/11 attacks. While 28 PAGES is of course a work of fiction, it was heavily influenced by real life events, including informed speculation involving the contents of those 28 pages.

We've seen this story before regarding attempts to declassify the 28 pages. Congress has initiated prior attempts to declassify the 28 pages, with no obvious success. President Bush blocked efforts to do so under the guise of "national security." Presidential candidate Barack Obama said he would declassify the pages but has not acted on that promise since being elected president. If this new resolution passes both houses of Congress (a big if), it'll be interesting to see if President Obama will make good on his word to declassify the pages when presented with the opportunity. My bet is he won't, and this will represent another failed promise of the president,
but as they say, stay tuned.
