Television content is often discussed online on forums such as Reddit, or on rating sites such as Rotten Tomatoes. Especially television series can spark lively debates about the themes they address and the captivating narratives they present. These online conversations could elicit and even strengthen entertainment experiences of viewers and foster connectivity among them. The project Extended Entertainment Experiences investigates the process through which television series can increase public connectivity by motivating online discussions. It does so through surveys asking viewers about their experiences when watching television series and discussing them with others, and by analysing the content and characteristics of online conversations about television series.
