Sure, I could fake it. You’d never know the difference. But I want to be ethical. I will thus admit that I have not seen the new CASTLEVANIA series from Netflix. It isn’t that I don’t WANT to watch it. I don’t live stream. I live in a rural area where I CAN’T live stream. If I’m going to watch something like the CASTLEVANIA series or STRANGER THINGS, some show that can only be viewed by means of live streaming, I have to wait until the show is released on DVD, or else try to find it as a bootleg. (Technically, yes, I COULD manage to find it online, if I was willing to jump through enough hoops and go to enough trouble, but I honestly don’t have time for hoop-jumping and trouble-going-to. And then I’d have to watch it on my computer, but I can’t kick back on the couch and relax that way.) Sadly, then, I have not seen CASTLEVANIA. But I can pass along the review of somebody who HAS. That person liked it. I’m sure I would, too. Will, too, when I see it.
Netflix must have liked it, too. Liked the ratings–How does Netflix monitor ratings, anyway? Is it easier for them than it is for the networks and their Nielsons? (I just got an offer to serve as a Nielson rater. Don’t know if I’ll bother with it.) Liked what they saw. Because they’ve already green-lit a second “season,” which will be longer than the first. Twice as long. Considering the first “season” was all of four episodes, that’s not saying a whole lot, but we’ll take what we can get. Or you all will, I suppose. I won’t “get” anything until the show hits DVD.
