What Binghamton Students Are Streaming This Fall
Posted by By Laura Guerrero-Almeida on October 22, 2019
College students are, to say the least, busy. But when they’re not studying or socializing, what do they do? I asked some Binghamton students what they are streaming this fall. Here are some of their binge-worthy responses.
Elizabeth Plantin/"Naruto Shippuden"
"It's an anime show. All my friends watched it when they were younger. My little brother would watch Dragon Ball Z and Naruto, and I was like, “It actually looks kind of interesting.” It is about some kid named Naruto and just his life….his trials and tribulations. He’s trying to embrace the power he has inside of him. Anime is actually pretty cool, so I started watching other anime shows."
Amelia Chuisano/"Raising Dion"
"It’s sci-fi, magical realism. It’s sort of like Stranger Things; I think that is why I like it. There is a big, bad guy, and there is like a little kid trying to save the world. It's cute."
Anaanjan Talukdar/"Black Mirror"
"Each episode is different, and they all cover some sort of twisted version of reality, something that we are not used to. It is a new take on the satire that we are used to. Most shows would just make it a comical storyline. This one takes it a step further than that, so it is pretty intense. It gets dark sometimes."
Tamara Nyarko/"All American"
Platform: The CW
"The story behind it is very dramatic. It displays people of color. It is hard to find people of color on television screens at all times."
Devin Udall/"BoJack Horseman"
"It sucks you in. Even though it is a miserable show, you care about the characters enough to keep watching. It has compelling characters and story arcs. You want to know what happens to them."
"It is a really interesting plot. The main guy is a stuntman. He found out his nephew died. They find out it is not an accident, more like a conspiracy."
Tony Henson/"Curb Your Enthusiasm"
"I like Seinfield, and Larry David is the producer of both shows. Curb Your Enthusiasm was originally aired through HBO, so they had a lot more freedom with how they can run the show. There is sometimes more crude humor, which sometimes I do like."
Olivia Belton/"Grey’s Anatomy"
"I want to be a doctor, so it is very funny to watch. Even though it is not realistic, it is still very entertaining. It is fun, but in a way, it is also very educational, so it is a nice break from school."
Nia Johnson/"Attack on Titan"
"The first season came out when I was in seventh grade, and all my friends were talking about it. And my cousin was like, “You really need to watch it.” So I started watching it, and it is really cool. It has the perfect mixture of anime and gruesome scenes. It doesn’t make me squeamish; I really do like it. It taught me how to read subtitles."
