comment What rules govern how TV show opening credits are structured?
@AbbyT.Miller Thank you, that was an interesting article. It seems the answer to this question may be "contractual machinations no sane person would want to understand," but the history is interesting. ^_^

comment History and reasoning behind average length of a feature film
While audience tolerance and production costs likely drive the current decade-ish cycle between shorter and longer movies, I expect the main reason for movie length to be heavily tied to live theater and play/opera performance length over a century ago. Which likely had many factors influencing it. Now I'm curious if anyone has a definitive answer... ^_^

comment Why do so many movies & TV shows feature recognizable, un-branded or re-branded products?
This can work to the viewer's advantage, as well. You know a plane trip isn't going to go well if you don't recognize the carrier. (NEVER fly Oceanic...) Some of these fake-brands are commonly used, as it can save prop/set creation time to use existing hardware. And it lends a sense of consistency to fictional reality. Then, of course, there's the "ordering a beer" phenomenon: cracked.com/blog/4-products-that-only-exist-in-movies_p2

comment Do contemporary cinemas really project at 25fps?
Did you ever see the TV series Connections? A LOT of things don't make much sense, until you learn they make a frightening amount of sense. You might like en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Frame_rate for hard FPS numbers. Recording speed (24 or 25) likely depends where the camera was manufactured; playback speed depends on where the projector was manufactured. Converting would only take adding or dropping 2-3 flickers per second, and extending 2 single frames by 1/48 of a second (or 3 by 1/72) you likely wouldn't notice. Speeding playback by 2 seconds per minute wouldn't be really extreme, either.
