Box Hell

I'd sure like to read this list from Rotten Tomatoes of the 50 Best TV-to-movie adaptations of all time, but the story has one unforgivable element that makes it an absolute slog to read. See, some sites like to split their content into multiple pages, hoping that you'll click through more pages (being exposed to more ads, naturally). A few years ago, IGN began splitting one page of perfectly valid content into five pages, but that doesn't hold a candle to this feature. Do you really want to click through 50 slow-loading boxes such as this one?:

Nice layout, but there isn't enough content there to justify its own window, let alone fifty of them, each of which requires a click and a five-second wait. Thanks but no thanks.
