My Personal Reminiscence of the Game-Changing Storytelling of “Glee”

As of last month, I decided to open my blog up more to the exploration behind storytelling of different mediums other than books. From television to movies, there are just so many of them out there that are changing the game in a lot of ways regarding how certain stories are told, and to not talk about some of them here on this blog, I find to be a little odd, especially given my circumstances as someone who studied media in college. Previously I discussed my thoughts about “Avatar: The Last Airbender,” in honor of its 10th anniversary. Now, the morning following its series finale, I want to dwell in on a television show that I’ve not only had a love-hate relationship with, but that has also drastically changed the television landscape in more ways than one in its six years on the air.

10 Years of Honor and Bending: My Memories of “Avatar: The Last Airbender”

My first venture out into doing so- on the television landscape- was when I provided my feedback on “Fresh Off the Boat” the weekend following its premiere. Now, in celebration of the decade since its premiere, I shall devote this post to my thoughts about one of my all-time favorite television series: “Avatar: The Last Airbender.”

In the months leading up to its premiere, there have been thought pieces written, regarding what this show could mean for the future of the media landscape (in particular, in diversifying it) and now that the first two episodes have aired, even more thought pieces- and of course, reviews- are pouring in. Many news sources and media outlets have had something to say about it; from NPR and the New York Times, to Angry Asian Man and Hyphen Magazine. My Facebook and Twitter feeds flooded in with numerous posts Wednesday night regarding viewing parties taking place in New York and Los Angeles, as well as from people I know who watched it from the comfort of their own homes. There’s been much to say about it- some good, some bad- and before the next two episodes air this Tuesday, I wanted to go ahead and present my two cents on ABC’s newest series, “Fresh off the Boat.”
