shows need to become less predictable
I dont mean keep adding plot twists which is an obsession of modern producers but I mean been prepared to have the main character lose and especially die.
I have watched many shows which are half good but I can never consider them fully good because they hold a common flaw, we get season finales where the main guy (or girl) is in life and death situation, and I know the character will not die because the producers wont let it happen. This is a big big flaw of shows. So the only unknown is how they get out of whatever predicament they in and of course what happens to any support characters. This ultimately means the centre of the story the main character is actually the least interesting part as its predictable what the end game is.
I also feel there should be more shows (and films) where the bad guy wins. Again for unpredictability.
Am I alone on this? I remember a discussion I had with my sister and she said the same thing without me even bringing it up which was interesting in her own words "I know what will happen".
