There are lots of ways to have a boring evening, but the first one that occurred to me was this:
(and some of you will be horrified…)
I have found pretty much every sci-fi movie/show I’ve seen to be incredibly boring.
It’s not that there’s a lack of action; it’s just that I do not find the subject matter to be remotely interesting.
I know it makes no logical sense for me to find something like Downton Abbey or The Crown more interesting than Star Wars, but here we are.
Those shows are certainly less exciting on the surface, but I find the small interpersonal dramas to be far more interesting than action/fight scenes.
Add in the fact that I do not like made-up worlds with made-up creatures, and British period dramas will trump Star Wars every time for me.
So: a sci-fi movie = boring evening.
An evening watching British period dramas, though? Totally fascinating.
