2018 is here and why not start the year right by not going to the gym or opening a book, but instead parking yourself in front of the TV and watching some Netflix.
This month, we're spotlighting a show that focuses on our perceptions, called Brain Games.
Brain Games is not a movie or a television show, so there aren't any characters or narrative to get invested in. Rather, this show explores the nature of our perceptions and is meant to inform viewers about how the cognitive processes of our brains can be manipulated to show things that aren't there.
The thing that is most interesting about this show is that there is an interactive element to it. That is, not only does the show try to teach the audience about all of the different ways our brains can fool us, it actually includes little minigames within the show where you can experience the illusions for yourself. This is a fun show to watch when lounging around with your friends. It's even better as a drinking game, where the person who gets fooled by the illusions have to drink.
Overall, this is a hidden gem on the Flix that has a novel concept. The icing on the cake is that it actually teaches you something. Check it out!
