What is it that makes binge-watching so magical? Is it the feeling of excitement of watching a series for the first time and needing to know what happens next? Or is it, perhaps, that feeling of comfort watching ten seasons of a series you’ve seen a million times before? Never before have audiences been given such access to the shows they love. Streaming services provide a haven for the biggest series in the world, but also the most obscure of cult classics. However, it’s quite noticeable that when watching a show on any streaming service, they’ll often give you the option to skip the intro. But why would you? And should you?
When COVID-19 shut down the whole of the world, many fans of musical theatre found themselves living with uncertainty: the uncertainty that Broadway may never return, or even live theater in general. Thankfully, though the intermission was long, Broadway did return. Musicals whose openings were long overdue finally got to see the light of day, and beloved favorites got to start right where things left off. Unfortunately, one thing that also returned with Broadway is how financially inaccessible it is. However, this is a problem with live theatre that has always been present. The pandemic has only magnified this issue.
I may have had my issues with the first seven episodes of “Stranger Things” Season 4, but there is no denying that the excitement for the final two episodes was unreal. Episode 7 left viewers with some massive revelations, but equally massive cliffhangers.
One can only wonder what it would be like to travel back to 2016 and watch the first season of “Stranger Things'' with the hindsight of 2022.
As described by former SGA President Riley Brown, “A new era has begun for the university.”
While movie theaters have been in a sort of purgatory over the past two years, the Marvel Cinematic Universe has continued to thrive on streaming service Disney Plus. From the sitcom-centric “WandaVision” or the time-altering “Loki”, Marvel has continuously brought its A-game when it comes to packing big-screen thrills on the small screen. Despite this, the series thus far have yet to focus on a new hero, only on the ones we’ve already had several movies to get to know. However, after five different series, the MCU has introduced its newest hero, Moon Knight.
Like comedy, horror is completely subjective. What one may find scary, someone else will get little to no reaction from it. However, it’s always a fun discussion amongst horror fans when asked the question: “What is the scariest film you’ve ever seen?”
While Covid-19 variants still raise concern for many, it appears (at least to most film studios) that the hurdle has been jumped and movie theaters are back. Now, 2022 is looking to bring about the releases of some major blockbusters that, up until this point, were struck down with delay after delay.
You will be hard pressed to find anyone unaware of the ongoing horrors in Ukraine at the hands of Russia. On Thursday, February 24, Vladimir Putin gave the order, leading to a continuous military assault on the neighboring nation. As the attacks continue, an outpouring of support has come from citizens all over the world. Now, sophomore Colby Page has shown his support through a new art installation located outside of Ezra Lehman Memorial Library.
If you had told me back in 2017 that giving ’50s comic book icon Archie Andrews a six-pack would lead to one of television’s most popular series, I would have told you that was almost as funny as Chris Pratt playing Mario (as you can see hindsight is 2022).
It is an annual tradition for the students at Shippensburg University to set aside their differences for the month of February and take part in some acts of kindness.
Everyone loves a good mystery. Whether you grew up playing Clue or watching “Scooby-Doo” or the teen mysteries of today like “Riv- erdale,” we all enjoy playing detective from time to time.
Even though March is approaching, that does not mean that the Black History Month celebration should start slowing down. One of the latest BHM events was the Residence Hall Association’s annual “Live at the Apollo” open-mic event. The event is meant to be a celebration of Black artists and performers as well as serve as a history lesson for students on the importance of the Apollo Theater in Harlem, New York.
Though the ratings have been on a steady decline over the past couple years, there’s still excitement in the air when the Oscar nominations are finally announced. The year 2021 was a massive year for movies, especially as most of them were originally intended for 2020. The 2021 Oscars ceremony was easily one of the most competitive contests. While the most nominated movie doesn’t always guarantee the biggest winner, it does help give an indication of what this year’s heavy hitters will be.
While still having some great comedy over the past few years, “South Park” has slowly been on the decline. The main reason? The creators embraced the social commentary and serialized storytelling way too much. For example, Season 20 relied too heavily on an overarching story that centered around the 2016 Presidential Election. Due to the results of that election not going the way anyone expected it to, the season was forced to drastically change course, and the sudden shift was unfortunately obvious. However, things started to look up for “South Park,” ironically, with the pandemic.
The musical sounds of Broadway have returned to the streets of New York and fans have been eating it up. After more than a year of silence, shows have re-opened their doors, and despite some changes given the pandemic, it is still the same old Broadway we know and love. To bask in the return of live theater, the annual Tony Awards gave us the biggest celebration of the year.
“Beetlejuice” may be known as the musical that was saved by TikTok, but the truth is that “Beetlejuice” (like it’s titular character) just won’t die.
Fans have been desperate to see the high-flying action of the Marvel Cinematic Universe (MCU) on the big screen. The last time viewers got to witness the Marvel heroes in the theater was all the way back in 2019 with “Spider-Man: Far From Home.”
