"13th" Teaches, Touches

Someone I know who works in the film industry once told me that if a movie or TV show doesn’t grab you in the first ten minutes, it probably will not grab you at all.  Recently, a number of Netflix and Amazon originals that have been listed among the most popular programs for streaming have not grabbed me.  After watching a couple episodes of such series as Bridgerton and Firefly Lane, I was not left wanting more.  Both are quality productions, the casting is terrific, but the stories are not innovative. Their themes remind me of the the paperback romance novels that were popular from the 1950s through the 1970s.  Harlequin books come to mind.  Barbara Cartland comes to mind, as well.

Today there is a trend towards immersive and interactive experiences in all forms of entertainment.

Audrey Kupferberg: Detective Shows

Some are cerebral.  Some are character-driven.  Some specialize in car chases.  The genre is known as criminal investigations, police procedurals, and just plain detective shows.  I find the best of them so entertaining, no matter the approach.
