Nothing about network mandates FG's structure. If it did, it wouldn't be the only network show that has it.

Speaking of which, last night. . . . Holy Shit.
On one hand, I wouldn't recommend it for a first-time watcher, just on the basis of dropping into the narrative.
But as an example of how creative 21 minutes can be . . . Again, HOLY SHIT. You could spend a good 2+ hours just explaining the interconnection of references, tropes, allegories, philosophies, etc. that were contained therein.
And it didn't even feel overstuffed. It gave you just enough of a reference to get the narrative, in the only setting where it all made sense together.

There are things to quibble, but the quibbling is part of the experience as well. Talented Mother****ers, that lot.
