Bravo to the powerful ‘The Internet’ ep of Room 104, the genre-fusing anthology series about the assorted folks staying in the titular motel lodging.
In this 1997-set ep, the guest is a budding author (Poorna Jagannathan, whom some may remember as the cab driver in Deadpool) trying to get his tech-illiterate mum over the phone to retrieve a manuscript from his computer.
Their exchange starts out comical before things get dark quick, escalating into a hurtful shouting match. But anger makes way for tears when one of them reveals a family secret.
It’s amazing how the ep runs the gamut of emotions in the space of half an hour, in a scene where one character is represented by a disembodied voice.
