Such a masterpiece drama
At Benchmark Capital in New York, there are a lot of concerns that Adam and how recklessly WeWork are burning through money. Bruce tries to fight their corner, pointing out that Adam is the difference compared to other companies but obviously we know that's not the whole truth. Despite financial problems, Adam wants to press forward with opening more locations - but it's not going to happen. Javi tries to rationale with him but instead Adam belittles the guy until Javi speaks up and tells the truth, pointing out the awful working conditions, the terrible pay and how landlords aren't seeing his vision. When Javi looks close to walking out, Adam decides to double his salary to keep him onboard. He encourages the workers to negotiate and either increase lease terms or the money offered to get them onboard. It's a risky ploy and as we know, it's going to go up in smoke. And if that wasn't instrumental enough, those aforementioned losses are now up to nearly 2 million a year. Wecrashed returns with another mediocre slice of biographical drama and while the visuals are good and the story itself interesting, I can't help but feel this whole story could have been told across a mini-series of 4 episodes or even a movie. Why do we need 8 episodes of this? If this episode is anything to go by, we don't. It's something Apple are becoming increasingly bad at, with this story stretched out across an 8 hour run-time that's really not needed. There's only so much narcissism one can take from protagonists like this and given both Rebekah and Adam aren't exactly likable, it makes the whole affair that much harder to watch. Would The Social Network have been as successful had it been stretched out over 8 episodes? I very much doubt it, and that's something Wecrashed is currently facing.
