We tried the first episode of The Expanse and couldn’t track what was going on with the back and forth between unrelated (at that point) plotlines. It wasn’t just me, either. Scott’s comment at the end was that he hadn’t the slightest idea of what had happened in the episode. We have that episode and the others still on our DVR, and we may try again. I’m not sure how interested I am given my tolerance for anxiety (Agents of SHIELD and Doctor Who push the boundaries of what I can handle).

We also watched the SyFy adaptation of Childhood’s End. My impression was that there was a lot of angst among the characters about things that I didn’t really see as that the things that should be upsetting— Children always grow up and separate from their parents and do things and live in a world that’s alien to what their parents knew. Of course, I’m also not convinced by things like art not flourishing in areas where things were utopian. People will create under circumstances like that. People explore and experiment for the fun of it sometimes, too. At any rate, we almost didn’t finish the series because we lacked any sort of emotional buy in or curiosity about what would happen next.

I tried the recent version of The Wiz, but I couldn’t get into it and ended up deleting it about forty minutes in when I realized that I wasn’t listening.
