Continuing with the social media overload theme for a few moments, how about a brain implant that keeps you connected to everyone at all times?
It’s described as “omnipresent technology called The Feed. Implanted into nearly everyone’s brain, The Feed enables people to share information, emotions and memories, called mundles, instantly.”
What could possibly go wrong?
Well, plenty, and that’s what the British sci-fi series is all about, set in the not too distant future.
You’ve probably guessed it’s a cautionary tale, among other things.
“We’re not too far off from this expertise,” says producer Channing Powell in an interview on SunRiseRead.
That’s one of the shows Maggie and I have been streaming together of late, cuddled up in our warm winter room.
Other watch-together faves: The Kominsky Method, a master class in writing, acting and directing. It was created by Chuck Lorre, who also wrote the two episodes we watched tonight. Michael Douglas and Alan Arkin are brilliant in their roles as an acting coach and his agent in their twilight years (or is that sunset years?).
And, of course, Season 3 of The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel about a housewife-turned-stand-up comic in the Lenny Bruce era. It’s brilliant in all the ways I mentioned in the preceding paragraph.
But we’re most excited about the new L Word: Generation Q. Cast members from the groundbreaking series The L Word are back along with a fresh young group . . . and it is so happening! We’re just California girls at heart . . .
OK. Enough about our faves.
How about you? What are your streaming on these winter nights?
