Hello, guys! How are you doing? Myself, I’m enjoying a quiet day at home, just before coming back to my university dorm once again. Today, I’m not going to talk about learning (but I’ll be talking about it again soon, so don’t worry!), but about entertainment. We’re all humans after all, and some fun from time to time won’t hurt us, will it? One of my ideas of something entertaining are TV shows. Yeah, I know, it probably makes me look as if I didn’t have a social life. That’s a bit true, but… who doesn’t love TV shows? My latest discovery is called “Screams queens”.
“Scream Queens” is an American horror-comedy anthology. It premiered on FOX on 22nd September 2015, and one of its creators is Ryan Murphy. Some of you may know that he was a man behind American Horror Story and Glee. I haven’t seen any of these TV shows, so I wasn’t sure what I should I expect, even though the trailer gives quite a nice picture of the Scream Queens’ vibe.
The action revolves around the mysterious killings on the sorority’s campus, which seem to be connected to old secrets of the Kappa House. What’s more? We have the mean girl, Chanel Oberlin (portrayed by Emma Roberts) – the president of the Kappa Kappa Tau and her minions called Chanel #2 (Ariana Grande), Chanel #3 (Billie Lourd) and Chanel#5 (Abigail Breslin).
They all lead glamorous lives of popular chicks, but once Cathy Munsch (Jamie Lee Curtis) becomes the Dean of the university, they are required to accept everyone into Kappa House or their sorority won’t survive.
Here come their pledges: a candy vlogger (Breezy Eslin), Hester – a girl with a neck brace (Lea Michele), Zayday (Keke Palmer) and Grace (Skyler Samuels). There are more pledges, but these are probably the ones which I remember the best. Every TV show has its curious, good girl, and here it’s Grace, who with a help of the university’s newspaper editor Pete wants to solve the mystery and find the killer.
There’s also Gigi (Nasim Pedrad) – the sorority chef, who’s mentally stuck in 90’s, Chad (Glen Powell )- a popular boy with an ego bigger than the Sun, and Denise (Niecy Nash) – a very funny bodyguard. Actually, there are many characters, who have their moments.
My opinion about the show? It’s so full of stupid remarks, exaggerated reactions, dramatic poses that it’s actually funny. At least, for me, it lets me unwind after a tiring day. It does contain a lot of nasty, inappropriate jokes, but it makes it fun to watch. Characters’ reactions are gif worthy, and it’s entertaining, so I would recommend it to anyone looking for something to watch after a day of being productive. It will probably never win an Emmy, but it’s quite a good watch, and I guess that’s enough. Give scream queens a chance… and see how loud they can get!
Thanks for sticking with me! Get ready for some learning posts!
Have a lovely day,
