Remember when TV didn't recap the previous episode...

Remember when TV shows didn't recap the previous episode at the start of each new one. And when they didn't feel the need to recap what happened before the ad break.

 

It drives me crazy. Please tell me I'm not alone in hating this and thinking it makes us lazier?

No, actually. It's always been there, just mostly in the soaps.

 

As late night drama began taking on more of an over arching soapish plot trend, it also brought with it the re-cap.

I do download episodes of shows to watch. Since they can edit out the commercials, one would think they could also edit out the recap.

I remember that Batman always started with a recap.
