Netflix’s newest hit series “Wednesday”, directed by Tim Burton, has officially revived the world’s love for the Addams Family. Jenna Ortega’s role as the delightfully dreadful Wednesday Addams has earned much praise from fans and critics alike, who champion Ortega’s expert ability to bring Wednesday’s apathetic, dark-humored persona to a new generation of viewers–and as someone who’s just begun the show, I’d have to agree with that assessment. But what endears me most about “Wednesday” are the ways in which the show, mainly through its titular character, pays homage to the oft-misrepresented subculture of goth.
Although 2021 blessed us with shows like Wandavision, Succession, and Mare of Easttown, we have to give props to 2022 for living up to its name as well. With the return of favorites like Euphoria, Bridgerton, and White Lotus, 2022 is proven to be a jam-packed year full of nail-biting shows guaranteed to have your eyes glued to the screen.
