A Negative Review

A bit over a week ago, we decided to expand our television viewing, because we’ve nearly exhausted what we consider worth watching on Netflix. I enjoy Star Trek reruns, but the craving for something new is always there.
So, we signed up for Amazon Prime. I do not recommend it. It might not be so horrible for someone living in the U.S., because a lot of programs I wanted to watch just said ‘Not available in your region,’ but there were a lot of others which required more money. Netflix doesn’t do that shit.
Also, it’s truly badly designed and very hard to look through all that’s available.
I did binge watch one program, The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel, which was good, original, unique, and intelligent, but it cut off in the middle of one episode, and every time I wanted to watch it after that it wanted to start at the same point, so I had to click ‘skip ad’ and ‘next episode’ an increasing number of times the further into the series I got and it got to be quite annoying.
You’d think, with the billions of dollars Jeff Bezos has, he’d be able to come up with something better than this. But, he hasn’t, so we’ll be letting it lapse at the end of the introductory period, and that’s that.
