Cliffhangers

They're a widely used trick in television, carried over from the movie serials. The season ends with the hero (or some other character) in mortal danger.

Thing is, I rarely remember them. This season of NCIS opened with the aftermath of Gibbs being shot. I didn't remember that he was shot. If it wasn't for talk on one of the gun forum, I wouldn't have remembered about the question of whether it was Branch or Barlow Connolly who got shot in Longmire.

If the idea is to ensure that viewers return in the following season to find out what happened, it's wasted on me.

Waiting for another person to agree on a day, and we will be binging on season four. Jessica Jones is another I want to binge, but it won't be out for a little bit.

Speaking Of, Can someone remind me why Gibbs had a head bandage on when he had been shot in the knee and chest?
