You should watch The Dropout next.TC wrote: 04/04/22, 07:58:51 battle of the startup docu-dramas:
Super Pumped - the story of travis kalanick and uber. it's been a really great show so far. extremely engaging and in my experience very telling of how the silicon valley startup world works and how the culture is. acting has been fantastic, JGL is spot on. very much recommend this show if you are remotely interested. finale is sunday night.
WeCrashed - based on a podcast i guess about the rise and fall of wework & adam neumann. lots of high-caliber cast in this, and it's well done, but goddamn do you kind of just want everyone involved to fucking die. it's so gross, but also really kind of happened that way. i can't wait to see them taken down, crash and burn style. contrasted with the above, where you kind of feel bad for TK, this will leave you yelling at the screen, praying for adam's death every waking moment. his wife is full of nonsense too. you would hope that the couple ends up spending many years in prison for how they essentially stole money from investors, but nope. they're currently living in the hamptons next to cousin gweneth paltrow with their nearly $2bil payout. of course, investors bear the blame here too and have paid the price with their wallets. somehow this show still has several episodes left. oof.
This is a snakeskin jacket. And for me it's a symbol of my individuality and my belief in personal freedom.
