I love Netflix. I love my On Demand TV channels. They provide me a portal into exciting worlds. I mean, how else would I be able to fight terrorists in Pakistan or to live along side a crime boss in New Jersey? I have felt the pain and the elation of coaching a high school football team. I know what it’s like to be a soccer mom and to secretly deal drugs. I know how the mind of a serial killer works. I know what it’s like to be a Soviet spy living in DC in the 1980’s.
I know so many things! I know that I actually miss these people when the series is over. I also know that my real life is pretty boring compared to my virtual friend’s lives. But that’s ok. In reality, I don’t want to deal drugs or to carry a gun or to be in the mafia — but for a few hours at time, I certainly enjoy the ride!
