This is a conversation that will be happening all across America's living rooms in about three months...
Him: Hey, what should we watch on-demand tonight?
Her: What about Paranoia?
Him: Which one's that?
Her: Was that the one with Chris Hemsworth?
Him: Chris Hemsworth? You mean Thor?
Her: Oh, sorry, I mean his brother Liam.
Him: Oh, gotcha. But what's Paranoia?
Her: Isn't it about a guy on the run?
Him: Wasn't that Abduction?
Her: No, that was the one with the guy from Twilight. Paranoia has Harrison Ford and he's bald.
Him: Is that supposed to be an enticement?
Her: I guess. Listen, we have to watch something tonight.
(My review of the utterly disposable Paranoia is up at Paste.)
