That's very generous of you, I'd love to have you as a customer in the future!
Sorry but... if you're a fan of any show, you should damn well know when a season isn't over yet. It's only thrown in your face over the dozen social networking sites.
The difference with the Walking Dead example you're referring to is that they're SPECIFICALLY telling you you're buying the season in parts, whereas the iTunes listing states 14 episodes (is being updated as each episode airs) yet you're only getting the first half.
Don't like it? Don't buy from Apple.
It isn't Apples fault that AMC went on vacation for 13 MONTHS.
You are acting as if Apple is producing the show, they aren't, they are just HELPING to distribute it. As is Google and Amazon. If AMC had gotten off their tails and put out all 16 episodes in a prompt manner, then maybe the DISTRIBUTORS would too.
And yes, you are getting all 14 episodes ... 8 episodes that were made in 2012 and 6 episodes of junk that were also made by AMC.
When AMC made the others in 2013, you will get the other episodes ... and junk that AMC made.
You got what you paid for ... and the Breaking Bad junk that was made in 2012 for one price. When the 2013 stuff is out, you will get that too, for the next years price. When you total BOTH costs together, they are comparable to what AMC charges for a "real season" of Walking Dead. Like I said, AMC is the one playing games where by taking 13 months off, NOT Apple.
Either way, I'm done arguing about this. I couldn't care less about Breaking Bad, or Apple, and the more I think about it, the more pissed off I get about AMC and their stupid greed and lack of guts to actually stand up and admit THEY were wrong/stupid for taking off 13 months and still trying to call it "a season".Edited by 47 Knucklehead - 9/9/13 at 11:42am
