A TV show is worth persevering with because it improves after just ten hours, according to a friend who assumes you have nothing better to do.
Friend Nathan Muir has recommended the American show, which is about the founding of Silicon Valley or something, while insisting that the initial ten hours of utter tedium should not put you off.
He continued: “Actually it’s more like the second half of season two when it picks up. But stick with it.
“The first season’s all setting up so you have to pay attention, apart from to the characters and plotlines they just drop completely, but I won’t tell you which ones because spoilers.
“But trust me, all you’ve got to invest is the equivalent of a couple of working days of your leisure time in something you’re not enjoying in the least, and it’ll properly pay off.
“Tell you what, if you watch all 20 hours and you still don’t like it, I’ll buy you a pint. How’s that?”
