Before I began watching the Jan 6 Hearings, I viewed it like a Marvel summer blockbuster. Would it would live up to the hype? Or would it just be a rehash of the disappointing prequels: the toothless Impeachment Trial #2, Electric Boogaloo?
It was interesting seeing Ivanka jolt like a nervous Bichon Frise and say, "I respect Attorney General Barr," when he spoke against her father. Sad to hear Jared call the brave staff who threatened to resign, "Whiners."
When I heard the police officers saying they'd lost the line, I worried each was an officer who committed suicide in the next few days.
And any shabby hotel I stay in will now be described as "not as satisfactory as we would hope" ala the Nick Quested the documentarian.
There were parts I couldn't watch: the officers being shoved, the woman telling the police, "No, you back down," anything with the blond officer fighting against the huge crowd of men with the bike rack.
But at its heart, it didn't have what I want: a smoking gun in Trump's hand. Still, I want to hear more about what Mr. Quested saw when the Proud Boys didn't walk where he expected and why he had to be subpoenaed, or why there were several police suicides after, and anything Trump said on tape. More episodes next week.
