Don’t Get Too Invested in Your Favorite Show

Don’t Get Too Invested in a Show You Like

The increase in the number of streaming services offers a greater variety of choices for consumers, but it also offers a double-edged sword to people who like to watch shows that air in an extended series format. 

We’ve all heard of niche shows that were deemed to be great by the critics, but they didn’t garner enough viewers to justify their being renewed for another season. Maybe they didn’t have enough publicity, or maybe they suffered from a slow build-up that only a few viewers appreciated. 

Devoting the time and intellectual effort to following the plot of a series and developing empathy for the characters is a form of personal investment that you take pleasure in. Suddenly cancelling that show can feel like the rug is being pulled out from under you. You crave an ending to the story and a resolution to all the plot points that you’ll never get. 

Be Prepared for Disappointment

With the increase in the number of streaming services comes an increase in the amount of competition for your viewing time. Streaming channels can no longer afford to air shows that get only a small number of viewers. Every streaming channel has to constantly air shows that appeal to the widest demographic to ensure the shows are seen by a large number of viewers. 

This is both good and bad. It’s good in that a wider appeal to the shows generally means a higher quality of writers, actors and production. But it’s bad for a show with a good premise that simply doesn’t garner the number of viewers initially to warrant continued support from the channel. 

So, choose your shows carefully and don’t get too invested in the plots and characters until you know the show has a future on the channel.

Real-life Plots are Just Fine with Me

Real-life Plots are Just Fine

There seems to be an alarming trend in the movie business these days. No actor can say they’ve truly had a successful career unless they’ve played a superhero or nemesis of a superhero at least once. I’ve lost count of the number of Batman and Spiderman movies. But I’m sure there’s at least enough for all the A-level actors to put on the costume and have a crack at the roles. 

The problem with superhero movies, is that they offer such predictable plots. The plots also often feature impossible difficulties that can only be overcome with the help of copious and ridiculous amounts of expensive CGI, after which the hero takes a knee to celebrate their victory. 

Not Aimed at Adults

The studios, when criticised for the sheer amount of superhero movies, point out that these movies are aimed more at juvenile audiences. It seems like the studios have discovered a can’t-miss way to make endless amounts of money by churning out the same types of movies to an audience that eats them up. 

The problem is, that they’ve forgotten about the adult audience. Adults crave real-life stories they can appreciate. They want to explore different facets of the human experience through quality films, rather than be subject to a cartoon-like plot that can be replicated over and over.  

I can see a trend happening where movie studios cease to enjoy a better reputation than TV offers. With the streaming services still finding their audience and establishing a level of quality that can be maintained, this isn’t the time for a movie studio to take the easiest road to profits at the expense of quality productions. Let’s hope the superhero fad starts to lose steam and studio execs come to their senses.

Reasons to Go See ‘Spiderman: No Way Home’

What Critics Are Saying About ‘Spiderman: No Way Home’

Everyone expected die-hard Spiderman fans to be excited about ‘Spiderman: No Way Home’, but few people anticipated how monumental it would be in tying together different Spiderman universes and delivering a truly enjoyable film for any superhero fans. 

Uniting the Spider-verses

There have been so many Spiderman story remakes that many people are skeptical of new additions. ‘No Way Home’ has united several different spider-verses in a truly delightful way, however, bringing together storylines from several different movie adaptations in a meaningful way. This movie is entertaining for long-time fans and less experienced Spiderman movie viewers.

Staying True to Spiderman

While the combination of so many storylines and characters in this new movie can be overwhelming, the way it comes together emphasizes who Spiderman is as a character and the values essential to his identity. Fans love that Peter Parker is a nerd who stumbles into herodom and that he is devoted to justice and compassion even after suffering terrible hardship and loss himself.

Touching and Inspirational

Aside from the many Spiderman movies made, there are also many superhero movies made in the general Marvel universe. In a world dominated by high action and complex storylines, it can be difficult to create a compelling and heartfelt storyline, but ‘Spiderman: No Way Home’ does this in a truly remarkable way. It adds to the character development of multiple characters and story arcs while connecting them in the same web. 

Don’t hesitate to take a look at this new addition to the Spiderman series, which has both hardcore fans and critics singing its praises.

1. Pilih padanan yang sesuai

Ada beberapa padanan yang boleh digayakan sebagai contoh seluar dan skirt yang digandingkan dengan baju kemeja dan blaus. Anda boleh memilih skirt dengan potongan a-line dan seluar formal yang tidak terlalu ketat. Bagi kemeja pula, ada sesetengah kemeja yang direka dengan potongan pendek. Jangan risau! Pastikan anda mempunyai koleksi blazer dan cardigan yang panjang dan labuh serta menutup paras punggung anda. Dari sudut warna, anda boleh mempelbagaikan fesyen pakaian Muslimah dengan warna yang terang dan ceria serta disesuaikan dengan blazer dan cardigan yang berwarna gelap.


2. Bolehkah saya memakai skirt?

Seperti kami ulas dalam poin pertama, skirt adalah antara pilihan terbaik untuk memberi kelainan kepada pakaian Muslimah. Skirt A-line yang panjang dan penuh pergelangan kaki adalah pilihan yang mempunyai spektrum yang kelihatan kasual dan mewah. Menggunakan skirt lengkap akan menambahkan sentuhan berpakaian feminin pada pakaian boleh menjadi cara yang baik untuk mengekspresikan keperibadian anda melalui fesyen.


3. Gaya Hijab

Gaya hijab adalah penting kerana ia memberikan impak kepada pandangan pertama seseorang individu. Pemakaian hijab untuk dipadankan dengan pakaian Muslimah bukan sahaja perlu mencerminkan gaya profesional tetapi juga perlu kelihatan kemas. Padanan warna adalah sangat penting dalam mengenakan hijab dan pakaian Muslimah. Pastikan hijab ataupun tudung dipin supaya anda boleh kekal kemas dan selesa sepanjang hari. Pilihan bahan untuk tudung juga disarankan agar diberi keutamaan kerana anda perlu memakai hijab sepanjang 8 jam waktu bekerja. Elakkan bahan yang jarang dan tidak menyerap peluh.


4. Lengkapkan gaya dengan kasut bertutup

Kasut bertutup memainkan peranan penting untuk melengkapkan gaya anda ke pejabat. Tumit juga disarankan tidak terlalu tinggi, tapi memadai untuk memberi anda gaya yang berkeyakinan. Kami turut menyarankan agar anda membuat sedikit pelaburan kepada kasut yang berjenama dan berkualiti tinggi terutamanya bagi melengkapkan pakaian Muslimah anda dan memberi imej yang profesional. Melabur dalam kasut berkualiti yang tahan lebih lama daripada trend fesyen adalah idea yang bernas. Kasut bertutup dengan reka bentuk ‘pump’ klasik akan sentiasa bergaya. Jenis kasut ini boleh memberi kepelbagaian rupa yang tepat pada pakaian Muslimah yang anda gayakan ke pejabat.


“Berpakaian untuk pekerjaan yang anda mahukan, tidak semestinya pekerjaan yang anda miliki”. Anda tidak boleh merasa tertekan ataupun enggan memberi fokus bagi mencapai penampilan profesional. Gaya pemakaian akan menjadi elemen penting yang mempengaruhi cara anda bekerja sehari-harian. Semoga petua ini dapat membantu anda tampil berbeza dengan pakaian Muslimah. Tunggu apa lagi, cubalah supaya anda tampil berbeza ke pejabat dengan gaya sederhana tapi kelihatan klasik dan profesional.
