  1. I can actually handle 12 eps per season rather than 13 if the total run length remains the same and they add 10-20mins during the final eps or at the beginning. It allows the plot to be wrapped up properly or some extra development in the eps. How many times have you watched an episode and thought an extra 5-10 mins would have done it better and made it less rushed.
