Mark Duplass, when describing “Room 104,” the new anthology series he’s producing for HBO, was most explicit about making the show a “casual, daily” experience. “You pop in, you watch one episode, have some sex with that episode. Then you don’t even have to come back for another three episodes,” he said.

“We’re the Tinder of television,” partner and brother Jay Duplass added. “You swipe left, swipe right.”
