Last night, a friend of mine invited me to meet for coffee. He’s getting married and wanted to give me the wedding invitation.
I arrived first, a few minutes past the set time. He then calls me to apologize that he’s late getting off work and to ask if I’d wait for a bit. Of course, I say.
Only trouble was I had brought no book, no writing pad, nothing to work on!
I turned to my phone, twitted a bit, posted a few likes and comments on Facebook, then got bored. No surprise there, right?
Hesitant that it would work, I opened the Netflix app. Browsed for a minute or two, then settled on “Rose,” the first episode of the re-launched series. Although I’ve heard of the series and the cult follow it has gathered, it was the very first time I watched an episode.
In a word: WOW!
Easy to understand the legion of fans. I like the camera angles, the writing, the little details. Not one info-dump during the entire show. We got to meet the characters gradually.
You gotta love new technology.
PS: My friend arrived a few minutes after the end of the episode. Now I have to figure out what to give him as present for his upcoming wedding.
