How Does It Hold Up: Will and Grace

Before the start of the newer show/season, I thought it would be a great idea to rewatch the original. It took me a while, but I thought it would be great since I didn’t really have much of a memory of it, though I do remember a couple of episodes here and there. It started out really well. The first two season were really good, followed but a couple of mediocre seasons. I would definitely call the final season my favorite. Of all the characters, I would say that Karen is my favorite character. She is slightly mean (insert sarcasm), but you know deep down that she would anything for her friends. Some of the many things that I didn’t like about the show include Will and Grace being self-absorbed at times where they really shouldn’t be, making fun of moments and things that really weren’t funny, and exclamations of the f-word. At this point, I’m fairly confident that my uncomfortableness of some moments is because of how things are now versus how things were then. The audience was laughing at things at I just was uncomfortable with and couldn’t really understand. At other times, I was amazed that Will and Grace’s friendship stood up against some of the things that they did to each other. That aside, I’m excited and scared for this new season. I hope that everything is updated for the times, the chemistry is still there, and they don’t ruin the great ending that the original series had. I’m crossing my fingers for the foursome.

Miraculous

Today, I will be talking about the amazing television show Miraculous: The Tales of Ladybug and Cat Noir. Now, I now this is technically a children’s show, but I loved it. It has all of the tropes of cheesy 90s television that I love. Also, one of the producers of the show is the same producer of Sailor Moon, which probably explains why I love the show so much. For future reference, Sailor Moon is one of my favorite shows. I know it’s super mainstream, but I just adore it. But one again, this show is mir … ama … spectacular. I would reuse the word, but’s that super cheesy. Even more cheesy is the way I heard about this show. The dining hall for whatever reason had a children’s network on, and I would watch, without sound nonetheless, I was just sucked in. That night, I started binge-watching. I’m not even ashamed. It was so good. I honestly cannot wait for the next season to come out. I might just have to watch it in the original French. By the way, I can’t speak French. I shouldn’t be that hard though. I also want my two-person love square again. It’s too funny.

How Does It Hold Up: Numb3rs

Since I have recently been taken over by nostalgia, and the fact that Hulu has a bunch of shows that I have always wanted to watch in order, I’ve decided to start this new “series” so to say. For this, I will be watching this that I loved when I was younger or older shows that I come across to see if they still hold up to my current interests.

For this first one, I will be looking that the show Numb3rs. This is the show that truly got me into math and the procedural cop show realm. It answers that age-old question that every student has in math: When am I ever going to use this in the real world. This show follows an FBI agent and his mathematician brother as they solve crimes together. What I loved about it was that it explained advance mathematical and logic-based concepts and dumbed it down so that everyone can understand. Now as a college student, I understood some of the topics just from being in class. Because of this, I see that it wasn’t too dumbed down. It didn’t feel like the mathematician was speaking down to me. The explanations are at an adult understanding, but also for those that may not have a complete grasp of the topic or for those that just need a refresher. I loved rewatching again and can still safely say that this will continue to be one of my favorite shows for years to come. I do wish that there were more seasons, but I am happy to say that it didn’t fall into the pit that other procedurals fall into; the one where the show goes on forever and gets really stupid. I’m happy to say that this show died well.
