Episode 3 “(Her) Questions”

There’s this phase of courtship that I love, I call it “The Cocoon Phase.” Every caterpillar has to go through that moment to become a butterfly and I think every couple needs to go through that phase as well. To forget about the outside world and just focus on what’s happening on the inside.

About Amari Sali 3103 Articles
New Jersey native Amari Sali takes the approach of more so being a media advisor than a critic to sort of fill in the gap left between casual fans of media and those who review productions for a living. Thus being open about bias while still giving enough insight, often with spoilers, to present whether something is worth seeing, buying, renting, streaming, or checking out at all.
