Jason Gaebel and Kwame Anderson don’t usually cross the bridge over Interstate 94 in St. Paul, Minn. But this Wednesday morning, for no reason in particular, the beer deliverymen decided to take a different route, they told local news stations.After dropping off a shipment of beer at a sports bar nearby, Gaebel steered the truck onto the bridge, crossing over the busy highway below. Then, they spotted a man standing on the bridge’s ledge on the other side of the fence.”Bro, you alright?” Gaebel, the driver of the beer truck, shouted out the window, as Anderson filmed on his phone. “Come on this side, bro.”Facing them, the man on the ledge responded that he was going to take his own life. Anderson cut the video, and called 911.
Neither show interested me, Wolf was shock for shock’s value and she wasn’t even good at it. McHale was just talk soup but on Netflix, I didn’t really care for it back when it was on cable TV, and I didn’t care for it on Netflix.
The problem isn’t with the content though, I know that there’s an audience for both types of shows and both types of humor work pretty well. The problem is Netflix’s interface is complete trash for shows that have new content coming out on a regular basis. There’s no episode queue to show you unwatched episodes. It’s barely usable for shows like Voltron or even the Marvel comic series, which I honestly don’t know that i’d be able to keep up with if they weren’t marketing the shit out of them before the new seasons air.
It’s hard to binge a series if you don’t even know it’s on.
