Everything good happens at brunch, but when it’s over, you have two choices (1) go home or (2) more bottomless mimosas.
In classic New York City fashion, the show (or in this case brunch) must go on.
Believe it or not, the highlight of my brunch that day was not the mimosas. It was my conversation with an older gentleman at the next table about Game of Thrones. We discussed everything from the plot to character development to our predictions for the upcoming last season. I left brunch that day feeling connected to a stranger all because of our shared love for quality television.
I tell you this story not because I like striking up random conversations with people after brunch; I tell you this because it depicts the power of storytelling.
Truthfully, there are very few things I enjoy more than watching television; I even love it more than brunch (sorry, friends). TV can be therapeutic. It can be your solace and it can bring you tears and joy. You become invested in a story, the characters, the conflicts, the development. Ultimately, when you find a show you swear by, you want to share it with everyone and their mother because who doesn’t love a good story?
That is why I am here to share with you my eclectic taste in television. This blog is my 2021 passion project: a place where I can curate my voice and do what I do best… talk about shows! I’ll give you what the algorithm can not… a new perspective!
