nice article, i would love if indian soaps became seasonal to allow their actors to get quality time off so they dont burn out. it would also keep the story fresh and somewhat on track! doesn't look like this will happen anytime soon though but lets see :)

Barun Sobti, missing u as always and cant wait to see u back onscreen! and maybe we'll even see u in a seasonal or weekend show one day! :) stay happy and blessed always and good luck for everything u do :)))

Barun Sobti is very sensible actor.. agree with him that shows should have season.. so everybody can get break & time to work on show more creatively..

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...
