The thing about YouTube is that once you click on something, even if you’re just curious and it turns out to be a vile piece of trash (oh, none of these are trash, don’t get me wrong), all kinds of similar things turn up forever..
You have no idea how much Jodi Whittaker/Alexis Bledel/Kelly Marie Tran hate shows up because I clicked on a video about Dr. Who/Gilmore Girls/Star Wars that had an interesting and innocuous title, whether I watch to the end or not.
Not to mention the Alex Jones Infowars crap and all the KKK and Nazi stuff that goes with it since, well, I write about politics and sometimes I need to see what people are reacting to.
Still, the reason I watch Cable instead of streaming movies is I like a lot of stuff that that I wouldn’t have chosen for myself and the element of randomness makes even my oldest favorites seem fresh. Only seen Casablanca about a thousand times, but I wouldn’t want to watch it a thousand times in a row.
