Maybe I am getting old. Maybe people are going overboard because they don’t want to be seen as dumbasses who can’t grapple with the next big thing in watching serials but the new Netflix experiment with left me rather irritated.
For me, binge watching (that’s what I end up doing most of the time now), is about starting the serial and throwing the remote away. Get immersed.
But this holding on to the remote because you have to make choices, sucks! People may call it next level of immersion but hell, I thoroughly disapprove.
When not watching tv, our lives are all about making choices. Spare me the act of making choices even when am watching!! Let me calm my mind with some mindless stuff rather than this!
And surprisingly, IMDb rating is 7.7. So obviously it’s not that quite mind blowing as it is made out to be. For me, to watch anything, the rating has to be over 8.
So yeah bring on the hate for me. I did not like the show and couldn’t go beyond first episode one. The first choice itself of sugar pops or Frosties was laughable!!
