According to the Innocence Project, a nonprofit legal organization that has fought to exonerate innocent men and women incarcerated in the U.S. since 1992, between 2.4% and 5% of all U.S. prisoners are estimated to be innocent. Considering that as of 2019, roughly 2.12 million people in the states are behind bars, this could potentially mean that just over 100.000 people are currently serving time for crimes they did not commit. Additionally, that is 100.000 people guilty of those crimes running free.
While some people are being almost offensively productive during these hours of self-isolation, many of us just want to take this time to relax and unwind. But maybe, even though you have more free time than ever, you’re still not in the mood to sit down and read those Game of Thrones books, or let your partner convince you to watch One Piece with them (which consists of a glorious 925 episodes… RIP). In that case, I’ve compiled a list of 10 mini/one season-series that you can binge through in just a couple of hours and then move on to the next one!
When we watch movies and television, commenting on and admiring the cinematography, acting, styling, and score is pretty customary. After all, cinema is mostly defined and looked upon as a story told through a series of moving images. But there is one defining factor that, if done well, usually goes unnoticed, but if done poorly will immediately take you out of an otherwise immersive experience - and that is sound editing.
Have you ever feared that making one decision might change your life forever? That one answer to a question, yes or no, would go on to be the defining factor of how your future plays out? That you will be locked down and stuck, regardless of how much you try to break out of the cycle?
With the current situation going on in the world right now, a lot of us have found ourselves with much more time on our hands than usual. And sure - if you wanna spend this time to write on that Shakespeare equivalent play you’ve been meaning to finish, by all means, go ahead! But if you’re just down to chill and who knows, maybe even looking to dip your toes into something other than The Office for the 18th time, I have got your back.
