Unknown Time Remaining In Media

In traditional media, the audience doesn't know how long is remaining in the story. So, false endings and other devices work well.

Traditional

Modern

In modern media, you always know how much is left.

Modern media should offer the option to not show how much time is left

It'd restore the mystery, and make plot devices work a lot better.

It would also reinforce the (in my opinion) correct way to read a book - to really consider whether or not this book is worth reading at all, and if not, stop reading, without feeling a need to finish it.

Kindles have started to give the option to hide page numbers, which is nice.

It's not really possible to do it with books, though.
