My sleepless nights are often rooted in my love for movies, sitcoms and drama series. Only recently, I diverted from all of those things and became hooked on social media app, TikTok. It snatched my sleep and stymied my productivity, so I made the conscious decision to delete the app and regain at least some amount of my sanity; it worked.
At least until this week when I did the out-of-character thing to tune into a show that had been dominating the screens of most, and flooded my social media feeds. Mind you, I am not a follower, and when it comes to television, I tend to stay away from what’s trending, largely because they often become sources of disappointment; much like the Full House reboot – Fuller House. I still can’t believe that made it past season one.
I have successfully steered clear of shows such as ‘Game of Thrones’ and ‘Brigerton’. As a matter of fact, it was only during the onset of the coronavirus pandemic that I began to watch Grey’s Anatomy; admittedly, I fell in love.
On Tuesday night, at the request of my younger brother, we tuned into ‘Squid Game’ on Netflix. The episodes were one-hour long and by the time we knew it, it was 3:00hrs and we were still craving another episode, but we managed to resist until the following evening.
Luckily, the South Korean series only had one season which featured nine episodes so after the second night of watching, we finished the entire season, and still wanted more.
Also, it’s safe to say, that the game we know as ‘123 red light statue’ will never be the same again. But even so, trust us when we say, Squid Game is worth the watch! And feel free to share your thoughts with us via email – email@example.com or on WhatsApp – 592-625-3257.
