The Good Place Ends on a High Note

After investing four years into The Good Place and becoming way too emotionally attached to the characters, I sat down to watch the finale in January, praying that it didn’t let me down: I have been burned too many times by a great show ending in a terrible finale (Looking at you, Game of Thrones, How I Met Your Mother; need I go on?). Thankfully, though, this time I was not disappointed. The 90-minute finale brought a bittersweet end to the incredible journey this show took us on.

Bojack Horseman Season 6 Part 2 Review

Do you hate yourself? Well, of course you do, you’re reading the paper. In that case, I have the perfect show for you: Bojack Horseman. This Netflix original follows the story of Bojack, a washed-up sitcom actor who has failed to accomplish anything meaningful since his show’s cancellation. Throughout the show, he attempts to recapture his fame and improve his character. Also, the world of Bojack is inhabited by anthropomorphic animals, but don’t let its happy exterior fool you: Bojack Horseman is one of the darkest shows on Netflix. It frequently explores topics like existentialism, mental illness, and substance abuse; the perfect show for people who enjoy seeing their hopes and dreams crumble before their eyes.

Jazz in the Caf

What’s more beautiful than sharing food? Sharing music—and, you ask, what happens when you share both? Love, which is exactly what Fordham University provided its students on February 5th, 2020, yet another year of our Lord. Preparing for a quick lunch date, we were walking to the Mecca of Fordham University, the cafeteria, excited by the thought of consuming its nutritional product, and not expecting anything out of the ordinary. What we found, however, was extraordinary—the real fountain of youth—a small band of six middle-aged men playing jazz. Notably, the drummer of the band resembled an older version of one of our very own Editor-In-Chiefs, Christian Decker. All the more delightful!

All Rise

Since its publication in 1960, Harper Lee’s To Kill a Mockingbird has captivated readers with its effortless poise, finely crafted details, and enduring messages of equity in an unjust world. Immediately commercially successful upon its release, the novel received numerous literary accolades, including the 1961 Pulitzer Prize for Fiction, and has been broadly incorporated into the curriculum of American schools. Known as a classic work of modern literature, To Kill a Mockingbird has been adapted into a movie, which premiered to acclaim in 1962, earning several Academy Award wins and nominations; Gregory Peck’s portrayal of Atticus Finch, the novel’s indefatigable and unflappable Southern gentleman, earned him the Oscar for Best Actor.

Reppin’ the City: Best and Worst NBA Jerseys

For the 2019-2020 basketball season, the NBA and 29 of its 30 teams—Memphis is wearing throwback alternates, instead of City Editions—have unveiled what they have dubbed “City Jerseys,” in an effort to connect each franchise to their individual fan-base in a unique and engaging way never before truly explored in American sports history.
