Movies and Limited Series

So lately I’ve been watching a lot of Netflix.

Generally, I’m not the kind of person that consumes a lot of media. I’d rather make things; I find creating things way more satisfying.

However, I got a bit burned out in terms of ideas—I didn’t know what to build— energy, and time (school am I right ✨). So, instead I spent about 20 hours of my life staring at a screen, looking at fictional characters living their almost perfect made-up lives.

Anyways, I really enjoyed these in particular:

I really enjoyed the miniseries in particular; it allows the filmmaker to tell a more detailed story, yet it doesn’t require as much time (and commitment) to watch, as opposed to, for example, a 7-season-long show.

A movie feels short when you’re used to a series. But that’s part of the appeal I think. A movie doesn’t try to suck you in, like a series does. It just tells a story.

Context

I wrote this a while back (somewhere fall last year), but I forgot to publish it. I found the draft yesterday.

Also, a lot of movies listed above share one common theme: they’re all semi-related to the reproductive system; I’m a teenager, after all ;)
