Confession time: I do not understand why Star Wars is such a big deal.
This is probably partly due to the fact that in general, I like fantasy a lot more than I like sci fi. But I love Edge of Tomorrow and Inception and The Martian, so inherent bias can’t be entirely to blame. Nope, I simply do not get the Star Wars phenomenon.
So when Netflix emailed me yesterday to say that they’d just added The Force Awakens, I figured, OK. Why not. Let’s try to figure out what all the fuss is about.
Except apparently, Netflix lied. At least, my TV couldn’t find it when I searched.
It was weirdly disappointing.
What about you? Are you a Stars Wars fan? Can you explain the hype?
