Overview: A sexy Valentine;s Day special hosted by Michael Bolton. Netflix; 2017; 54 minsCool: At the height of his fame in the 1990s, Michael Bolton was the epitome of uncool: a long haired romance novel looking lothario singing love songs that made your mum 's heart melt. However, in recent years, he has seen his coolness rise as a result of nostalgia from '90s kids and his collaborations with The Lonely Island on their track, "Jack Sparrow " and in their movie, the vastly underrated, soon to be cult classic, Popstar: Never Stop Never Stopping.
At turns hilarious ("I went to look at your twitter and you were wearing cool pants ... #Wizwearscoolpants"); dismissive ("You have distracted from my creative process"); and incredibly disappointing ("you let a stripper trap you"); it was a moment that not only belongs on Twitter, it belongs to Twitter. It's time to embrace that.For years, I've seen Twitter positioned as something that goes along with. Over the years services, apps and platforms have come and gone based on the idea of hosting conversations along with whatever is being broadcast. Livetweeting of events will never go away, and while that's the kind of thing that can make watching TV better, it doesn't especially enhance Twitter itself, or give the masses a reason to check it out. Instead, Twitter is at its best when it's hosting the show, and there's nothing between us and the insanity, inspiration or entertainment on the other end. The most essential conversation is what causes Neil deGrasse Tyson to go on late night TV and drop knowledge about physics, not just the commentary during that appearance.
