MySpace launches "Minisodes"
Question: What's better than full episodes of T.J. Hooker? Shortened episodes of T.J. Hooker, of course.
MySpace has launched The Minisode Network, a place devoted to edited versions of episodes of old TV shows like Silver Spoons, Starsky & Hutch, Diff'rent Strokes, Who's The Boss, Sheena, and others. They're actually sort-of complete episodes, it's just that all the trivial parts have been edited out. More like a quick summary of the plot/episode than a full episode. I don't know how this benefits the storytelling, but then again, if you're watching Silver Spoons you're probably not watching it for the storytelling. Of course, you can watch complete episodes of shows over at In2TV.
As for T.J. Hooker, it amazing how cheesy and ridiculous it is, though in an entertaining way. It's like Police Squad.
