Freebase

  1. Episode

    An episode is a part of a dramatic work such as a serial television or radio program. An episode is a part of a sequence of a body of work, akin to a chapter of a book. The term sometimes applies to works based on other forms of mass media as well, as in Star Wars. Episodes of news programs are also known as editions. Episodes which end in the middle of a climactic moment are often called cliffhangers, after the name used for early movie serials. Such episodes can be nearly daily occurrences in soap operas and are frequently used in season finales of many prime time shows. Episodes can be part of a larger story arc stretched out over a time period covering one or more seasons, or even an entire series run. This is especially prevalent in dramatic television series, including soap operas or science fiction series. Other genres to feature story arcs include comedies and animated programming.

Examples of Episode in a Sentence

  1. Dan Harmon:

    I'm giving him an episode, i'm making it official. We have 70, he can have one. Kanye, you can have one.

  2. John Vignocchi:

    ' Disney Infinity 3.0' is the only video game that will be featuring characters and content from' Episode VII -- The Force Awakens,' and Disney Infinity 3.0 has become a huge responsibility, because J.J. Abrams and Kathleen Kennedy, the director and producer on the film, have made, what I believe will be, one of the best' The Force Awakens' films ever made.

  3. Margaret Atwood:

    Remember the first one? Atwood said referring to Star Wars: Episode IV – A New Hope. Two guys fly a plane in the middle of something and blow that up? The only difference is, in‘Star Wars,’ they get away, right after 9/11, they hired a bunch of Hollywood screenwriters to tell them how the story might go next. Sci-fi writers are very good at this stuff, anticipating future events. They don’t all come true, but there are interesting ‘what if’ scenarios.

  4. Carol Channing:

    I did an episode of ‘Family Guy,’ in which they wanted me to say the F-word. You know that one? Well, I refused. We finally agreed that I would say ‘friggen’… That was our compromise. And I think it was just as funny as the other.

  5. Christina Hendricks:

    I don’t know, i don't think I’ve said goodbye. As I watch the last episode, maybe that will happen.It’s a very weird sensation. I just always have taken it for granted. Like, I still get to go back in six months and play her again. But not this time.
