Florida and the Plagues of Bob II
Thoughts on entertainment’s second place train wreck after Netflix’s very bad day
On one side of town we have one cataclysmic mess unfolding in Netflix: The Reckoning. But up the road, off Alameda, Bob II also must be wondering what sin he committed in a past life to bring such misery down on himself. Or was it the curse that a malcontent in the Maleficent costume put on him when he ended the Fast Pass program?
While his predecessor King Mister Smooth flicked away every controversy like water on his rain slicker, for Bob II, everything that comes along leaves him drenched to the bone like an unlucky passenger in the back seat of a Splash Mountain log flume.
It doesn't help of course that the press, still longing for the Bob of their heart's desire, has officially dubbed Bob II the uncool one, the CEO it's safe to mock, hoping he won’t be around long enough to put them on the outs with the Disney company.
