Pop Sanskriti: Black Mirror Season 5, Chernobyl, E3 & The Office!
In this episode of Pop Sanskriti, we talk about whether Black Mirror’s latest season hits the spot. We also discuss a newly released trailer of an Indian version of the cult classic, The Office, the latest miniseries from HBO, Chernobyl and the world’s biggest gaming event, E3. And we obsess over Keanu Reeves. Tune in!
An Indian Version of The Office?
The trailer is out and Michael Scott is now Jagdeep Chadda, a ‘Funjabi’. This isn’t the first time this is happening – the American version of the show was preceded by the British original. Will this Indian adaptation ruin a cult classic, or will it push the boundaries of Indian comedy?
After the gaping hole Game of Thrones has left in our hearts, HBO has come out with Chernobyl, based on the Soviet nuclear disaster, to satiate our hunger for quality content. The internet has blown up with reviews and memes, but how explosive is Chernobyl really? Fair warning, spoilers ahead.
Black Mirror Season 5: Yay or Nay?
Black Mirror is a show that has consistently delivered on the promise of existential crises. The latest season, which has three episodes, takes a slight detour from the classic Black Mirror formula. Does this ultimately work out for the show or does it blunt the existential blow?
E3 & Keanu Reeves
The Electronic Entertainment Expo or, as Debayan likes to put it, ‘Woodstock for gamers’, is the largest event for gamers in the world. This year, several exciting new games have been announced with riveting new trailers. Oh and the internet’s sweetheart, Keanu Reeves, is in one of these: Cyberpunk 2077. We discuss E3’s biggest developments and announcements.
