Bottle Episodes

Recently, The AV Club shared an article that deals with the importance, history, and legacy of bottle episodes in television. I know some people don't like them and view them as cheap, but I think they're a great, innovative form of storytelling that can be really beneficial for the right show. It worked with such episodes as Fly from Breaking Bad or Cooperative Calligraphy from Community. I really do appreciate the bottle episodes and this article was great to learn more about them.

  1. Always interesting to read about things like this, the different ways shows do the same thing. I like how some bottle episodes, originally conceived to save money, ended up costing more than usual.
