Stale……

“Pop-Tarts…they can’t go stale because they were never fresh!”

Longer forms entertainment, it’s the wave of the future.

Huh? Don’t we live in the short attention span era?

“A small amount of too much spoils the whole thing.”

That’s why Jerry didn’t do another season of “Seinfeld.” He was worried about compromising the white hot relationship between the show and its fans. Once it’s not quite as good, it’s awful. Kind of like a standup…he’s genius if he kills for an hour ten, after an hour and a half, it’s way too much, you’re looking at your watch, and you’re ready to go home. Come on, you’ve had this feeling. And it’s not that you don’t want to hear any more, but that special feeling…it’s evaporating.
