    ya it may be a good idea..
    but comparing indian shows with the american is unfair..
    they are different in their own ways

    Season wide distrubution is a good idea..It will give CVs more more time to think about..the stagnancy factor might be resolved...and the excitement among viewers also will remain intact.. but only for shows which are popular..not only TRPwise but also on internet...Makers should research on it and should take off during its peak so that within a few months when the next season comes...the xcitement and eagerness still remains among viewers...

    Overall good idea to work upon...

    The shows that were mentioned are on once a week for an hour and Castle is one of my favorite shows in the US. Soaps like All My Children, and One Life To Live are similar to IPKKND and probable faced the same problems because they are no longer aired on television. You could stop watching these shows and a year later pick up where you left off. IPKKND is doing good compared to the daily soaps here.

    I think! really good idea.. infact writers of the show will get enough tym to include creative stuff.. and interesting story... which will tie the viewer till the end of the show...

    I have always been a supporter of this idea, I don't know if it'll work but it would be a great move. Who wouldn't want better storylines, better performances, and some amazing twists every other day. You just said that a show in india lasts for one year and a half but in the west a good show might run

    for probably 4-5 years, now which fan wouldn't want that!
    See the advantage guys, everyone wants thattheir fav show should just be at its best the entire time it is on air. The person who said above that only indian audience is emotionally attached to GECS...WRONG! You really need to have a look at the fandom shows like Castle, Supernatural, Vampire Diaries have... Everybody gets emotionally attached to their fav shows, irrespective of the country. IPKKND and Supernatural have a lot in common in terms of viewership, both of them have avid (rabid) viewers...I, devoted fans. Apart from that, fangirls (like me) who find the lead actors simply gorgeous :) So why not have Ipkknd season wise...awww do I see frowns...Trust me guys the breaks b/w seasons will be worthwhile... its still better than the current dragging and some crappy and prolonged shows. Btw tc Barun and spn is my fav show:D:D:D:D:D:D:D#^_^
