It’s a sad day indeed, for another media pundit has discovered the ugly ease of piracy and is calling for the complete destruction of the release schedule structure because he just cannot wait two days to see more episodes of Homeland. This time it’s Frederic Filloux writing for The Guardian, and his quandary is not to be taken lightly: the poor man paid $32 for the first season of the twisty CIA show only to find himself hooked, but when the next season arrived on September 30th, he had “no alternative but to download free but illegal torrent files.” Oh, no! Like a neck-scratching addict, he had to turn to crime in order to get his fix because his only other option, a hellish last resort, was to wait a few days to see it on TV. So let’s burn this mother down. Filloux argues that the antique nature of the current stratified release schedule should be replaced by universal availability because he wants everything right now, and, okay, maybe all of his frustration is warranted even if his response isn’t. There’s nothing wrong with recognizing the reality of how we consume media now, and we can take it without any kind of value judgment, but this is yet another situation where someone is calling ignorantly for the castle to be destroyed because the gate he goes in through all the time was closed for the day.
