why release_year column is object?

This lesson and the one before it mention that although there may be an ideal type for your column that doesn’t mean the data you import or the dataframe you’re provided will have the best type. In fact it’s quite common that they aren’t ideal so getting in the habit of checking the set-up of your dataframe is wise as you may need to alter some of the data types before doing anything else.
