Dear streaming services of the world. First let it be known that I love what you do. Content on demand, gripping series and the occasional deep thought documentary? Sign me up baby! No I’m writing to you all today with a simple suggestion that I feel will improve what you do to no end, something I’m sure I’m not the only stream consumer that will benefit from..
It’s been a while since I last sat down and watched Wayward Pines from start to finish but boy am I glad I did, having forgotten how brilliant this series actually was. Although as usual after watching pretty much anything, I have some questions…
Today class, we’re discussing streaming.
Originally this was going to be one of those random thought posts where I wax lyrical on anything and everything. Only after writing for a bit, I realised most of my thoughts were aimed squarely in the direction of the TV behind me and everything streamed to it recently. So welcome to what I’ve been watching and in one particular case, a show I still wouldn’t watch even if I somehow ended up on it..
I love a gripping series that hooks me right to the very end – what I’m less fond of though is a gripping series where once finished I have to read an online guide to work out what the hell just happened. No seriously, I might not be the most canny streaming watcher but if you need someone to draw you a diagram to figure a show out, maybe it’s a little too clever for it’s own good? (Or maybe I’m an idiot – could be a little in column A, a little in column B..)
In the last two weeks I’ve come across two that fit this particular bill. The most recent did make sense when I read the ‘What’s going on here then?’ write up, the other though was completely beyond saving..
