With Winter TV season officially over, and already a few weeks into spring, I really wanted to just do a little bit of a recap about what I was watching last season, and how I felt about it. This list is going to be crude. It’s by no means a “what I should go back and watch” or a “I have such great taste in TV” list. It’s just what I watched, and how I felt about it. Ready, set, go.
Kobe Bryant’s Muse:
Less of a TV show and more of a Movie, but it’s on Showtime so fuck it I’ll put it on this list. As a life long Laker fan I actually cant remember a team without Kobe on it. I’m 22, and even if I have memories from when I was 6, that’s crazy to think about. That time is almost over, ad the change is just making me sad. The documentary was good. Not amazing, but good. It gave a new light to a mysterious idol of mine. Maybe idol is too strong of a word here actually. Regardless, It was weird to see Kobe talk to the camera like this about his history, and his recent injuries. It feels as if he has a mental illness, which is his fuel for this fire driving him. His methodology is not normal, and so foreign to most people. It’s admirable to see the success that this has given him, but I realize that many people would rather be unsuccessful, than be stricken with how Kobe feels about himself on a daily basis.
