More and more, I have to read about books and movies I read/watched to find out what they were really about

Most recently, the first episode of Season 5 of "Black Mirror," "Striking Vipers."

Only when I read the plot summary in Wikipedia did I understand what just happened.

A couple weeks ago, it was Susan Choi's superb new novel, "Trust Exercise."

Again, I had to find a review to understand what happened.

But — in both cases, I enjoyed what I saw and read, regardless of the fact that I didn't "get" it.

I'm not one to try to understand movies or books when I get confused: I just keep on keeping on.

I'm confounded by people who seem to understand all the twists and turns of a plot as they unfold.
