We’ve been watching Mom ever since it turned up on Netflix. I never knew much about the show, but recognised the two main actors from their other works.
I watch things spoiler-free these days.
It’s not bad. I like that it is a show that has (is still?) been on the air for 8 years. There’s so much to learn from long shows. They have good and bad episodes. They get to explore all kinds of storylines that you just can’t in a fast paced, tightly plotted show.
Though now I’ve used the word tightly plotted it feels like I’m claiming this one isn’t. Hmm. Wondering about my own judgements there. This is why I like writing. I learn a lot from myself; what will my brain spew out today?!
A while ago someone on social media talked about how they couldn’t blog much right now because they were in a learning phase. I inferred from that that they could only share when they felt like they had reached expert phase. It kind of annoyed me and I replied to their message saying I share the learning journey, my thoughts, my questions.
Never got a reply. Not that I was particularly expecting them to. It wasn’t really them I was familiar with or that annoyed me, it was a callback to the whole “there’s one correct way to blog” bullshit. I was sad it still exists. I like asking questions. I am not an expert. I am a life long learner. I don’t feel shame when sharing things I have questions on. Questions are good. Questions show that you are still alive and pondering and taking in things from the world around you.
