On the subject of the differences between weekly episodic releases and Netflix’s binge-watching format, Cox offered his opinion as someone involved with both media. According to the actor, the main contrast lies in the quality of the writing. The recent era of content has wired the minds of the public in such a way that the traditional television viewing style is becoming redundant day by day.

With the Netflix series, there is no need to wait. From a writing perspective, there’s no room for cliffhangers or an active ability to build anticipation (unless it’s a volume-based release) because it does not suit the structure.

Another quirk of Netflix’s format prohibits the show from having weekly reminders of what happened in the last episode. You can watch the series all at once, without having to wait seven days in between. It’s modeled around convenience.

Here’s what Charlie Cox had to say about Netflix’s series structure:

“As a by-product of [the format], the quality of the writing… the character arcs and the plots can be a lot, you know, lengthened and a lot more subtle. And it’s more like a 13 hour movie.

The sentiment is truthful but also quite intriguing, especially now that Daredevil: Born Again will most likely adhere to Disney+’s existing structure, which relies on weekly releases. It is quite obvious that the change in style and quality of writing will be evident with a change in structure.
