“How was your day?” I ask my wife as if I can still ruin it. I ignore that she startles and hides the cellphone, and whatever she might have been watching dies in a snap. Perhaps the hush tells what it has been. She confirms, “I was watching Lovecraft Country.”

It is banned in this country, and so are other docu-series like The Man in the High Castle, and The Handmaid’s Tale. Docu-features like, World War Z, Rosemary’s Baby, I Am Legend, Mockingjay, or Stree or Go Goa Gone. They have been contraband since the year zero.
