I have never had the greatest relationship with television. I’m kind of like television’s fairweather friend. As a kid, there were a few shows that caught my attention, but I was largely uninterested. Pop culture references? Don’t bother. If I can’t look it up on Google right away, it’s as good as lost. I have never seen any Idol shows, I don’t keep up with Kardashians, I don’t know who got voted off which island. I haven’t had a cable subscription in two years. My partner ended up purchasing a set a few weeks ago, and I have been browsing Netflix for the first time in my life. Do you know how many documentaries are available on Netflix? More than I was able to browse through, that’s for sure. And the things I have chosen to watch so far have been a reminder to myself that I shouldn’t share everything with the anonymous online public.
“Shouldn’t” being the operative word.
