Sucked In

I watched the very exciting show Salvation on Amazon Prime, but when Season 1 was over they said I had to purchase Paramount Plus in order to watch Season 2 and because I liked it so much, I got sucked into doing that.  Spoiler alert Season 2 ends with many unresolved issues and I am still worried about whether or not the meteor named Samson will destroy the Earth.  I Googled Season 3 and I found out that the show was cancelled and Salvation will not be returning for a third season.  It is not the worst thing in the world having another entertainment outlet in my life and after ten years of just watching Netflix, I was running out of stuff to watch.  At any rate, it is cheaper than joining another dating site, which I finally realize gives me nothing but problems.

I started watching the series Picard, which I really enjoyed and the best part was when Seven of Nine plugged herself into the Borge cube and became the queen, she was always such a badass.  Now I am watching Star Trek Discovery which I am also enjoying despite the flaw of the spore drive transport system, which is integral to the show, but it is out of place.  The main character is a woman named Michael and she is Spock’s half-sister, and Spock’s father Sarek is also in this series, which puts this show at an early star date, so this advanced technology seems out of place.  The comedic character Fenton Harcourt Mudd also shows up in this series, which enforces this earlier time period, but I guess that everything does not have to be perfect for a show to be enjoyable.  The one thing that does piss me off about Paramount Plus is their need to make me sit through 20 seconds of commercials, before a new episode comes on and that never happened on Netflix or Amazon Prime.  If I am paying to watch something, I should not be forced to watch commercials.

  1. I try not to watch series because of this very reason. I don’t want to get sucked in, addicted, whatever. I do watch a lot of movies though and I filter them to be “free” to me ~ free after paying $129 for another year of Prime. I don’t want to watch commercials SINCE I ALREADY PAID. GRRRR. Good peeve, Jim!

  2. I HATE that. It just seems so sneaky somehow. I got taken in with “Bosch” too, because the ‘last season’ ended on a cliffhanger, and the buzz was that they were making another season. Then Covid hit and obviously no new season occurred. Finally in May of this year they got the series out there. I still don’t know if they’ll do another one, because again, they left it on a cliffhanger, but I heard the main actor is ready to hang it all up. No “Bosch” without a Bosch and if they do that stupid replace the character with a different actor b.s. I’ll be livid. Sorry for your troubles with that, I am less inclined to watch a station that pulls that kinda crap.
