Similar to other comedies such as “Friends” and “Seinfeld,” “That ‘70s Show” exhibits lighthearted jokes among friends and family members while also exploring the difficulties of managing school, work and relationships.
Swiftly following the release of “Avatar: The Last Airbender (ATLA)” to Netflix came its controversial sequel: “The Legend of Korra (LoK).” The series recently spent a good amount of time on Netflix’s top 10 in the U.S. list, and so became deserving of my attention.
What do a Motown legend, a Super Bowl MVP, a former White House press secretary, a country music singer and the most recent star of “The Bachelorette” all have in common? They are all trying to tango their way into America’s heart as the new contestants of this season of “Dancing with the Stars.”
After the quite confusing and disappointing series finale of Game of Thrones, I now watch TV with lower expectations. Placing a lot of pressure on the directors to create an ending that satisfies everyone with isn’t fair, but I can honestly say that the “Jane the Virgin” series ended in a way that made me happy and sad.
The biggest night in music, better known as the Grammy Awards, aired live on Jan. 28 from New York City, and proved to be another misfortunate evening. A lack of diversity remained within this year’s selection of winners. Since 2017, the award show’s ratings have dropped tremendously for a few reasons.
For me, a lot of the appeal with superhero comics is the way creators weave in the more ridiculous ideas from that tapestry into the story. These things complicate the comic on the surface, but at its core is a simple hero’s journey. Adaptations usually seem ashamed to touch on the ridiculous things in the comic book universe. Netflix doesn’t even put their heroes in spandex until the very last episode, if that. “Legion” is not afraid to dip its toes in the unusual and the absurd, while still being a superb superhero story.
Rick’s character flaws have been demonstrated time and time again in the show, and his other family members certainly don’t like him any better for it. Jerry Smith is the epitome of every foolish human being. He acts in contrast with Rick’s obvious genius. He is consistently overlooked by other members of the family, and deplores Rick for good reason –– Rick is self-destructive and has a tendency to leave people behind in his catastrophic mistakes.
