06

By Preston Wilder

Seeing a person grow up on screen isn’t entirely unprecedented; it happens with all long-running TV shows and, for instance, if you binge-watched one episode from each of the 11 seasons of Married With Children you’d see Bud and Kelly grow up in a similar way to Mason (Ellar Coltrane) in Boyhood.

Which is why...
