Sometimes I can’t brain sufficiently for any of the shows I want to watch, so I try to find something new that I don’t have to engage with too much. Tonight I tried out Another Life from Netflix, and maybe someone can let me know if it gets any less tiresome after the first episode? It’s a bit cheap and a bit nonsensical in terms of character behavior. The alien ship at the beginning is a great design concept I’ve never seen before, so naturally they then almost immediately do away with it. Superman from Supergirl makes for a great asshole, though. I will say that the entire Eine kleine Nachtmusik thing amuses me to no end, because once upon a time when I was maybe twelve and in Lyon, a French kid and I had an entire “conversation” about our respective digital watches without knowing each other’s language; his played “The Yellow Rose of Texas” while mine played, yes, Eine kleine Nachtmusik.
