What is NECC watching: Spring 2021 edition

During the pandemic, everyone’s schedule is different, but there are some of us who now have more free time than ever before, which can lead to being able to enjoy more TV shows and movies!

David Rattigan has been watching Supernatural on Netflix with his daughter. The NECC professor also recently watched Resident Alien on Syfy, as well the Netflix documentary, This is a Robbery.

NECC student Zachary Cutter has been watching Star Wars: The Clone Wars, which he notes introduced fan-favorite Star Wars character Ahsoka Tano, who started off as someone who was not particularly liked by fans. He has also been watching Batman: The Animated Series from the 90s, which features Kevin Conroy and Mark Hamill as voice actors, who are, in Cutter’s opinion, the best Batman and best Joker, respectively.

Personally, I recently enjoyed The Falcon and the Winter Soldier, a TV series that takes place in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. It follows Sam Wilson and Bucky Barnes after the events of Avengers: Endgame.

NECC academic coach Denise Trinidad also watched The Falcon and the Winter Soldier, but especially enjoyed WandaVision, another Marvel TV series. “The themes about loss and love made WandaVision appealing to me. I wanted to see where the storyline would lead – how Wanda would reconcile her thoughts and feelings.” says Tinidad, when asked what she liked about it.

When asked what her thoughts on certain characters were, Trinidad said “Although Wanda had super powers, it was the human characteristics that I liked the most about her. Of course, as a mother, being able to protect your family with super powers is appealing too.”
