I haven't seen the show yet, but if they'r ethinking in three-act structure, I can see those episodes becoming real bores.  I noticed with Game Of Thrones that the seasons are laid out like five-act structure movies, with each episode being half an act.

A five-act structured movie (like T2) breaks down like this:
intro-conceit-turn-spiral-climax.
and each act breaks into rising and falling action
and it means you've got a consistent pace throughout the whole thing.

So the first ep of Got is intro rising, ep 2 is intro falling, etc.  This is why all the big episodes are always the ninth episode, that's where the climax of the movie is.

But a ton of movies use the three-act structure, which bloats up the middle of the movie, it takes much longer to do one thing.  Imagining this stretched into a couple episodes.. that kind of gives me the willies.
