Last week I stumbled across another Netflix original series: 3%
That’s its title. 3%.
I’m not quite finished, but before I started episode 1, I knew it was dystopian.
And I watched it anyway.
I mention this b/c I’d rather shave my head than read another dystopian novel . . . Which got me thinking about all the other things I’ll watch but won’t read. Or will read but won’t watch.
I’ll pretty much watch anything sci-fi: space operas, the aforementioned dystopian, ALL the superheroes, etc.
My one exception is giant-insects-as-aliens. *runs* *hides*
But I wil read NONE of it.
I just can’t. I get bored. There are, of course, exceptions, but they are few and far between. #notmything
This one’s easy: I will watch anything UF. Even if it’s terrible. I don’t care. I’ll watch it anyway.
I’ll read it all too. Or I’ll at least attempt to read it. If it’s crap, my rage is disproportionate to the offense, but isn’t that usually the way when it’s what you love best?
I rarely watch fantasy. The obvious exception being GAME OF THRONES, b/c awesome. But ninety-nine times out of one hundred, anything designated as “fantasy,” both tv and movies, is a cornfest.
Don’t get me wrong, I love WILLOW as much as the next nerd . . . Ish . . . But take a look at the list that pops up on Netflix or Amazon Video when you search the category.
Like UF, I will read almost all of it.
I won’t read it, but I’ll watch it. Sometimes. Maybe.
What about you? Are there things that you’ll watch but won’t read and vice versa? Or am I a big weirdo?
