There are series that are everything and there are series that are nothing. The concept of “watch TV to hang up”, so popular, has a dark side. Is it really worth sitting in front of a screen and subjecting our eyes and brain to stimuli that make them work, even a little, if we get nothing in return? And I’m not talking about science or knowledge (the series is not for that), but minimal complexity that reminds us that we are adults looking at the screen of our own accord. It makes sense that programs that do not offer the viewer any rewards ask the viewer to select them from the platform’s menu and press the play button. play?
Well, it seems so. On Netflix, it makes sense, of course. If not, why would we insist on raging superficiality in our catalog where dozens of nondescript series vie for it stupid What are you wearing to hang up?
Of all the little things I’ve been through lately, maybe this race to success the most forgotten. I stopped one of its episodes a few minutes ago and can’t remember what it was about. Signed by Georgia Lee, race to success takes place in New York, goes to lawyers, and has cute main character played by Arden Cho. Each of these three things would lead me to it individually, and yet none of them stop me. If I need basic lawyers, I stay in Suitsif I want to see Manhattan, I go back to sex in New York (as if I needed an excuse for that) and if I look for Arden Cho, I’ll find her in Chicago Medwhose only pretense is to entertain. Which is not the same as spending time.
The difficult cases of Ingrid Yun, the ambitious but (surprise) principled attorney at a corporate law firm in Manhattan, they disconnect my brain in ways that I neither seek nor want. I, who with my life defend series that allow you to do other things while watching them (i.e. ironing), choose those that almost force you to adapt them to tasks that do not necessarily mean being in the same room where you have the screen, i.e.: take out rubbish, walk the dog, talk on the phone, go to the movies, meet for dinner on the terrace or be in another room with a different screen and a different series. oh take me race to successthat is for television what stuffing pillows is for interior design.
It’s not that I’m asking this series to blow my mind or open my eyes to fascinating worlds, but I know a little bit of interest in keeping me, a less demanding viewer than it seems, interested in Ingrid and her stuff. The girl’s name was Ingrid, of course, I had to google. I found by the way race to success is an adaptation of the novel by Helen Wan who has no bad reviews. Can I read this while watching another series? And when am I reading the next book?
