The Second Stylus has a full schedule of new content coming to our readers this week. Additionally, we are happy to welcome back one of our previous Staff Writers, who will be writing our recently added Friday Analytical. Starting next week, we will be expanding into covering original content from other major streaming services, so get excited for more diverse reviews.
On Tuesday, I will be publishing my review of Shadow and Bone, a fantasy series that follows a battle between magic-wielding Grisha soldiers and a mysterious wall of shadow called The Fold. With a biracial Asian actress playing the lead heroine, there is a lot to like about the series, but there are also many negative components that ultimately tanked the quality of the show.
For Wednesday, Sorenya will be reviewing Into the Night, a Belgian TV show about a group of passengers whose plane is hijacked, only to find out that the sun is killing everyone outside. They have to keep moving into the night to escape it. Sorenya will explore themes of different leadership roles that emerge in times of crisis, and examine the role of the plane’s captain.
On Thursday, Courtney will be writing about This Is a Robbery: The World’s Biggest Art Heist. This sensational, four part docuseries is filled with fascinating suspects, including a stoner security guard, a career art thief, and at least three gangsters named Bobby. Sounds mysterious and intriguing, no?
And finally, on Friday, we have our first analytical piece from Anthony. He will be covering Love, Death & Robots. His piece will analyze how this series is captivating because of its narrative anthology structure, and how its speculative nature speaks to stresses and fears that are deeply rooted in the state of our modern lives.
Thanks for tuning in! We hope you enjoy this week’s content.
