I'd like to see more fan films break out of the television structure. To some extent, what's being done is pastiche...which is fine, but it's also a crutch. Write ten pages and end on a little cliffhanger or dramatic line, rinse, repeat. Act Four, Oops, time to wrap this up...
Seriously, a number of experienced TV writers were perplexed by the TNG five-act thing because they were used to the network format. Both seemed equally arbitrary if you'd never written a TV script before.
I don't think Intrepid does the false climax/place nonexistent advertisement here
thing, but they're properly educated - having grown up on British TV and all.
