August 9th Newsletter

By Olivia Snyder, Co-Editor

Hello TSS readers,

Welcome to the start of a new week. Podcast planning is officially underway, so get excited for our very first release, due to come out soon! We will post any official podcast news here in the weekly newsletter. If you have any suggestions for what you’d like us to cover on the podcast, please feel free to reach out to us on our “Contact Us” page or leave a comment. Have a good week!

On Tuesday, I will be publishing my review of Netflix’s The Witcher, a binge-watch that has long been overdue for someone who works at TSS/The Path blog. I will be approaching this review from a more objective audience standpoint, as someone who has no previous knowledge of the Witcher franchise. Does the Netflix series do well enough on its own, even for people with no Witcher background knowledge? Check in tomorrow to find out.

For Wednesday, Sorenya will be covering the second season of Biohackers. After the cliff hanger in Season 1, it was imperative that she reviewed Season 2 as well. Season 2 picks up with Mia having a serious case of memory loss. This review will look at how Mia navigates her new reality to uncover the truth.

On Thursday, Courtney is reviewing Haseen Dillruba from Netflix. This film is a drama-packed romantic thriller, but how does its female protagonist complicate (or fail to complicate) gender politics within the story? This Hindi-language movie is becoming a vehicle to explore whether or not a throwaway crime movie is still a viable product, or whether audiences are now demanding more nuance.

And for Friday, we are lucky to have Benjamin Rose, the Editor and Lead Writer at The Path, as a guest writer for the Friday Analytical. He will be writing about the pilot episode of Loki, one of the most recent Marvel streaming additions to Disney Plus. To keep it simple, Benjamin’s piece will explore how the pilot of Loki charts a redemption arc out of white male entitlement in the context of some troublingly pro-authoritarian world-building.

Thanks for reading!
