They show the struggle that the women of Gilead had to endure as they are brutally subjugated. This series goes in depth about the laws that were in favour of a man’s world where women are not allowed to work, own property, or handle money.

If you like a classic series, this series goes deep into a harsh reality of societal views in some places.

13 Reasons Why Season 2 – What’s the Deal?

May 26th, 2018   admin  Uncategorized   No Comments »

13 Reasons Why Season 2 came out last Friday, and it has gotten mixed reviews. Season 1 of the Netflix series was about Hannah Baker’s suicide and the tapes she left behind describing the events that led to it. The first season was met with a lot of praise, but with an equal amount of criticism. The show made it a point to represent sexual assault in its’ true form, but the scenes can be disturbing. Some critics claim that the show is too graphic. In season 2, viewers are told about 13reasonswhy.info, a website with resources for those who need help with suicidal thoughts. Season 2 deals with the aftermath of Hannah’s death, including a civil trial involving Hannah’s parents and the high school. Season 2 hasn’t received as much praise as season 1 did, and schools are sending out emails to parents with warnings about the show. We’ll have to wait and see if season 2 is as successful as season 1.

Altered Carbon

May 10th, 2018   admin  Uncategorized   No Comments »

A Netflix Original set in a distant dystopic future where life is digitally formatted. This story follows Takeshi Kovacs, played by Joel Kinnaman, who wakes up from being filed away in a prison database and thrust into the murder mystery of Laurens Bancroft, played by James Purefoy, a wealthy man who has no recollection of who killed him. Kovacs has to adjust to a new body and mysteries from both past and present. From episode one until the very end there are several twists and turns. Such as many new series, some would say that the show opens at a slow pace.

The first episode tries to acclimate the viewer with as much character knowledge as possible. The viewer has to learn some traits and why each character is in that moment. This becomes tedious at first, but quickly you are enveloped in the story and along for the ride. Each episode peels back the layers and answers the questions you are pining to learn. The most impressive roles were that of Dichen Lachman and Matt Biedel. Lachman plays Takeshi Kovacs’ younger sister. She is fierce and enthralling in every scene. Matt Biedel may be the most surprising and impressive. He truly shows his range and talent in this role where he plays a tough biker and a sweet grandma, all without changing his appearance. It is rated TV-MA, and I would highly recommend it to anyone of age. IMDB gives this show 8 out of 10 stars, but it most certainly deserves more.

Season 2 of Stranger Things

February 11th, 2017   admin  Uncategorized   No Comments »


Netflix’s “Stranger Things” released an ad during Super Bowl 51 stating that Season 2 will come out on Halloween Tuesday, October 31, 2017. The commercial was only 30 seconds, but the main thing that stands out from the trailer was that the main characters of the show were dressed like the Ghostbusters. A hypothesis on why the main characters are dressed like the Ghostbusters is  “Maybe it’s dress-up day near Halloween (not so scary), or maybe there’s another, more sinister reason why the boys are wearing the outfits made famous by Bill Murray, Dan Akyroyd, Harold Ramis and Ernie Hudson”(Gunderman). Or maybe the like of Gozer from Ghostbusters who could be an allegory for the monster of season two that would be a God like being compared to them. The commercial kept on illustrating that something abnormal is going to happen next season. The next season of “Stranger Things” is a show that people cannot miss out.
