Difference Between TV Series and Movies

TV Series vs. Movies

Movies and TV series are popular entertainment. Like movies, the TV series have also captured the attention of the people and are very popular. Just like the actors in the cinema, the TV actors are also very famous now.

Movies can be called creative concepts that not only entertain people but also give us something new. A TV series can also be called soap operas. They are just created for selling some products. TV series are those that are based on concepts that sell at the moment. On the other hand, movies talk about different things and are creative.

When compared to movies, a TV series can be very boring and very long. A movie may run about two to three hours, but a TV series does not have any time schedule. It may run for years.

Another difference that can be seen between TV series and movies is in the commercial breaks. One can come across advertisements in-between a TV series, but people do not come across such commercial breaks in-between movies. These commercial breaks cannot be avoided in a TV series as the money for making the series is gotten from these advertisements.

In a movie, people can relax and enjoy the full length of the entertainment. But in a TV series, people cannot have this full length of enjoyment.

When talking about production costs, the TV series is as costly as that of movies. There is also a difference in the format in which the TV series and movies are shot. When movies are made in 70 mm. film, a TV series is made in 35 mm.

When talking about the notoriety, a TV series can have a larger audience than the movies. The TV series at times has even reached the remotest places.

  1. It’s an interesting question because, while the similarities are becoming more glaring, and the line between the two is rapidly disappearing, there are still some big differences. Generally, individual movies still cost more to make than any equivalent two hours of TV; they take longer to shoot; they try to tell contained stories (even if they’re sequels or franchise installments) that fit the time window and are not open-ended, and they try to tell stories that are more epic or large scale in a way that will justify both watching them on a giant screen and spending the time and money needed to go to the theater.

    But the distinction between TV and movies is blurring, largely for technological reasons. Today, nearly everything is shot digitally, nearly everything ends up on cable or streaming, and nearly everything will ultimately play on your phone. Production values for a lot of TVs are now rising to the level of movies, which is why it cost hundreds of millions of dollars and took two years to shoot the last season of “Game of Thrones.” Also, writing on TV has almost certainly surpassed that of movies, which has, in turn, made TV more prestigious and has drawn a lot of movie stars to recurring or full-time TV acting roles. And while TV remains largely episodic and open-ended, each episode still follows the same three-act structure (more or less) that movie screenplays do.

    The differences are becoming more academic and harder to define. Sure, it’s still more prestigious to win an Oscar than an Emmy, and we’re not likely to go to the theater to binge-watch episodes of most shows. Still, increasingly, all visual storytelling is just another form of digital content piped onto the screens of our choice. Except for special events we’ve all but abandoned theatrical moviegoing and the accompanying immersive and social experience of watching a movie on a larger-than-life screen in a room with hundreds of others sharing the same experience. Instead, we’ve traded it for convenience and less gripping stories, so that we don’t mind pausing and restarting or watching them on a palm-sized screen where visual details are lost. That’s true whether we consider what we’re watching to be “movies” or “TV.”

  2. That was a… shallow assessment of movies vs TV series.
    Creativity is not limited to movies, a TV series is not just a product seller.
    If TV was long and boring, nobody would watch and products wouldn’t have any selling boost from TV ads because there wouldn’t be any.
    TV has both a production time schedule and a broadcast time schedule… some find the TV episode production much more demanding than for a movie production.
    Advertisements are included interruptions during the showing of each episode of a TV series. The series is a continuing entertainment and may generate ‘spinoffs’.
    Advertisments are presented before the uninterrupted showing of a movie, usually a one-time production, limited-time showing… although there sometimes are sequels and less often ‘prequels’.
