Today’s TV series are aesthetically very atmospheric. When one connects to a fictional world for 60 hours and the plots are less intensive than in films, at the same time as digital distribution makes it possible that we watch every single second of the work (which was impossible in the old days of TV), one dwells in them in a way, which makes their atmospheres central. If classical Indian theatre was about atmospheres called rasas, and our contemporary TV series are very much about atmospheric experience, can we learn something about TV series by applying classical Indian aesthetics to them?
