Me: another netflix binge session? What is this programme?
Dad: the Good Witch
Me: okay. And you’re watching it because…?
Dad: I thought there’d be magic and fireballs and all.
Me: right. It just seems to be this woman endlessly talking and encouraging the townspeople to fall in love or start businesses etc because ‘she’s got a good feeling.’
Dad: she talks too much. I fast forward sometimes.
Me: right. But you’re still watching it because…?
Dad: maybe there’ll be magic and fireballs and all.
Me:….right. But you’re one season down… that’s 24 episodes and no fireballs?
Dad: (sadly) not even one.
Me: just talking and feelings?
Me: and you’re still watching it because?
Dad: maybe there’ll be magic and fireballs and all?
Me: right. I think I’ll go see what mum’s watching.
Me: what’s this programme mother?
Mum: ‘Sasural Jo irritating hai with lots of shiny sarees and patriarchal crap’
Me: this needs some magic and fireballs.
