So far this has been like going out the awkward, not very attractive girl in high school because everyone says she puts out.
I don't think it is just the subscription model that is driving the weekly release schedule.I definitely think this is going to be a series that will benefit from the "Binge Watch" model and probably would have been better received if it had all dropped at once, the Netflix, model, rather than Week by Week. I understand why Disney releases their stuff Week to Week, like with the The Mandalorian it stretches across subscription periods making people renew their subscriptions to finish it. They are also probably still viewing things from a broadcast Television model where week to week is the norm and seen as helpful to build audience attention. However, with a show like this, with a nontraditional story and presentation, doing it week to week is generating the kinds of reactions we are seeing on Social Media, and here. Confusion and misunderstanding of the point or premise of the Show, resulting in Negative Opinions that very likely would have been different if it all dropped at once, and/or will change once we can go back and watch it all at once.

Marvel are keen for everyone to have the same experience viewing this without spoilers in the same way as their theatrical film releases. There are plenty of a-holes out there who would binge this in a day and dump the internet with spoilers. It's hard to navigate Youtube at times without some algorithm suggested channel showing a picture as the main link with a selfish, spoiler filled title.
Consideration has been given to fans who like to enjoy things, slow down a bit and not burn through content.
If people want to wait and binge this in March, that's great, fill your boots. I'm just grateful that the patient viewer is being catered to first.
Whether you like the show or not so far, everyone is getting a fair chance to enjoy this at their own pace.
Other than I don't think it's a 'Marvel' thing. I suspect it's more of a corporate thing.Exactly, beautifully said.
