TV can be good sometimes. I definitely concur that each of those are that.

I couldn't get into Ted Lasso. Haven't seen Queen's Gambit yet.

I watched the first episode of The Vow, but with 8 more hours of it ahead of me I mostly just think that a competent documentarian could probably have effectively told the story as edited into a two hour film. I feel this more strongly about documentaries than I do about narrative TV, but it is my general starting point on television.

Never watch Shoah.

Never mind, I didn't read back. I don't think Shoah could've been done shorter, it just wouldn't have been the same. Efficiency really shouldn't be the aim of anyone making art, but you need room for quiet contemplation with what you're being presented in Shoah.

I have seen Shoah. Didn't care for it. And I mean, I liked Near Death a lot and that's near 6 hours. I just really liked City So Real which is a TV documentary. It isn't a hard and fast rule. But like, I'm not the only one who is suspicious of streaming bloat.

Oh for sure, I hardly watch any series of anything. Would much rather watch several films on one of my many watch lists in my Drive.
