I do not think going to netflix would mean an improved budget. I'm pretty sure ABC is providing the bigger one just due to the amount of eps they order alone. It's just about where that money is going too. There's things a netflix budget can't do cuz of limitations.
Plus once again it just comes down to the writers and actors you get some times. Most network shows could be high quality if showrunners/executives would get the best ppl in the writer's room and isn't hard if you just look at other really well written shows that have ended or were canceled.
It may not get a larger budget per se, but I believe they'll utilize it better. If it were to transition to Netflix, I doubt we'd be getting these 22 episodes like we're getting from ABC. . ****, Marco Polo was given a $90 million dollar budget for 10 episodes. AOS also has an established fanbase that'll more than likely switch over, with the possibility of getting those viewers who already have netflix and may stumble on it.
Well again, that's cuz they have to. Plus you gotta look at the original shows Netflix has. 10-13 eps about a street level hero.
Netflix don't got the money to do all the flashy **** you might take for granted when you watch an AoS ep. No believable looking helicarriers, flying ships, etc. if AoS was on netflix. No multiple locations around the world and no cg or good enough special efx for super powers. It's just that on the flip you may get a more serious tone, better writing and acting, and then the most of the money would go to what's most important to the show and that'd be the fighting so fight choreography. Also netflix like any tv or cable network only has so much money to shell out when they're setting budgets for their series. The more successful ones usually get the bigger budgets (see GoT taking up most of the HBO budget or TWD getting the shaft cuz they brought in ratings anyway with ****** seasons while BB or MM took up most of the AMC budget)
You can look at a show like the Flash and see how they've managed to find success with it which is why WB/DC didn't say we should launch this show on HBO instead. It's not really about will the AoS fan base switch over. It's about wanting to have your Marvel show on a network channel during prime time so it can reach the biggest audience at all times. Plus Disney owns ABC.
