As a standard, I don’t watch streaming-service original TV shows or movies. I find them mostly to be the equivalent of eating generic options for foods. I’ve tried straight-to-streaming entertainment time and time again, usually to limited success of getting past the first 20 minutes of everything I try.

If there’s a grudge I have these days against folks in Hollywood, it’s that everyone is putting their eggs into the “create as much content as we can for streaming” basket instead of “create a great film or TV show” basket, and instead of eating a delectable dinner every once in a while, we’re eating rice and beans every night. I get it – it’s a business decision, one that streaming services push to demand attention.
