Episode #70 – Episodes in a Bottle

“Bottle Episode” is a loose term that describes a notable style of episode in Television. Stories set in one location or the famed “clip show” are two examples of the kind of bottle episodes fans will see. But, bottle stories don’t exist solely in Television;  comics and animation have had fun trying to recreate the feel of a bottle episode in their mediums, and as audiences have become more aware of the concept, there is a lot of fun to be had when creators start to get creative with the idea and find new ways to play with the trope. Pull up a chair and enjoy as the panel discusses the concept of Bottle Episodes.
