One thought on “Link: Netflixâ€™s â€˜Betweenâ€™ Puts a Polite Damper on Growing Old”
I guess I should reserve judgment about the show until I actually see it but this is another article written by someone who looks down on the sci-fi genre, something I’ve seen all too often. At least this critic actually talked about the episode rather than dismissing the premise and writing it off. I won’t get a chance to watch Between until tomorrow evening but I do like the trailer and it is my type of show. I do like dystopic fiction. The 100, for example, is a series I really enjoy watching.
