22 episodes, really? Its not 1995 anymore. All that says to me is "lots of filler crap coming your way."
13 standard, 16 or so max, we don't need more than that, not nowadays. The only show left I watch with 22 is Supernatural
, and god the last two seasons have had soooo much filler.
With the way a lot of people watch TV shows now (after the season/s are done, via dvd, netflix, illegal internet, whatever) I'd say 22 actually puts people off. I know a friend of mine was put off BSG
for a while because of its 20 episode seasons (2, 3, and sort of 4 anyway)
The Walking Dead
American Horror Story
22 episode season? Fuck that.
