Why do viewers generally not highly evaluate episodes with a large number of episodes?Because many episodes don’t need to be made as long, but rely on artificially lengthening the number of episodes has always been more profit, commonly known as “water injection drama.”The number of episodes is elongated but the core content is not increased. Naturally, the rhythm is prolonged, the quality of the episode is reduced, and the audience’s experience of watching the drama also deteriorates.There is no doubt that such “water injection drama” has become the previous normal, and even some high-profile hot dramas cannot be avoided.For example, “Fragrant Honey Sinks Like Frost” aired in 2018, was once deeply trapped in the “water injection” suspicion.The scriptwriter Zhang Xiewei Huang Gongwen said that the original contract signed for the adaptation was written in 36 episodes, but the client was prepared to make the film into 50 episodes, and the screenwriter team finally submitted 43 episodes of the script.The Zhicheng film has 63 episodes.The 43-episode script went to 63 episodes, which made the screenwriters nervous about the rhythm of the story and the quality of the film.Stills of “Fragrant Honey Falling Like Frost”.The picture comes from the online drama series, choose “injection”, the audience had to choose double speed or abandon the drama.The double-speed playback function of the video platform is very popular, and the “popularity” of the “water injection drama” is verified from the side.In the audience questionnaire survey on “The Reasons for Watching Scripts at Double Speed” by Democracy Sauna, the option of “the content rhythm is too slow, and opening double speed does not affect understanding” is far ahead.The “efficiency” doubles the number of votes, which is nearly four times the number of votes for the third place “convenient to choose the content of your favorite artists”.As the competent department, the State Administration of Radio and Television has long been concerned about the serious situation of the domestic drama “water injection” and has conducted research.On July 3, 2019, the director of the General Administration and the party secretary Nie Chen said in the TV drama department, “For the problems of water injection drama, palace drama, remake drama, high actor remuneration, etc., we will dig deep into the disease and keep high pressure”.At the beginning of September of the same year, there was usually news that the State Administration of Radio, Film and Television was studying relevant countermeasures and soliciting opinions from the industry, and proposed to set an upper limit on the number of episodes, with an upper limit of 40 episodes.A person with a head film and television production company confirmed to Sauna Nightnet that it did receive relevant comments.The purchase and sales model is the key, it is not easy to change the status of “water injection”. A TV drama production company practitioner accepts the sauna. It was mentioned in an interview with Yeewang.some.”TV dramas are mainly sold at the price of episodes, and actors also calculate the remuneration in episodes. The increase in the number of episodes allows both the script and the actors to have rights; for TV stations, the increase in the number of episodes means that there is more space to insert advertisements., Also increased revenue.”The reviewer” West of the Sun “analyzed that the traditional movie-buying and selling mode of TV dramas and video platforms buying episodes in episodes is the reason for the” water-injection drama “, which does not change from the root cause.With the purchase and sales model and the pay structure, the problem of “water-filled scripts” is difficult to truly solve. “Even if there are a large number of sub-account scripts, they have achieved impressive results.”The abandonment of the traditional model of buying dramas based on collections, and the rise of a split-drama based on the distribution of effective click-through rate and broadcast volume and broadcast platform revenue, or will become the” water injection drama “terminator.This is equivalent to putting the decision-making power directly in the hands of the audience. Only the excellent quality, not the length of the episode, can impress the audience and obtain better income.”Sauna, Ye Wang Yang Lianjie editor Tong Na proofreading Lu Qian
