Untitled[edit]

Shoud this page not be integrated with webserial, since they are both the same kind of things, one is video and the other is about text/comics Serton (talk) 12:59, 16 September 2008 (UTC)

  • No, I think they are clearly separate art forms. That would be like saying that comic books and television shows are the same thing because they are serialized. Billbowery (talk) 04:37, 27 July 2009 (UTC)

Web series vs Podcast[edit]

I think podcasts and web series are pretty much the same thing, except that the term "podcast" has a specific origin from being distributed to iTunes/iPod users. But they both are the same thing: audio/video series in an episodic format that is distributed on or through the Web/Internet. Should this article be used to refer to web series which are scripted/dramatic in content, while podcasts refer to the larger medium of both scripted and non-scripted syndicated audio/video online-distributed series?
