Television audiences have become obsessed - no, like, really obsessed - with one thing in 2010s zombies. Which is why AMC's Walking Dead stood as one of the most - watched shows on cable for the better part of a decade. The show, inspired by a series of comic books, premiered in October 2010 and has spawned several spin - offs, as well as a weekly talk show entirely dedicated to discussing each episode. That's fandom at its peak. Speaking of walking down the aisle, reality star Kim Kardashian and NBA basketball player Kris Humphries made global headlines in 2011 when the two announced they were filing for divorce after only 72 days of marriage. Many speculate that the entire wedding was just a massive publicity stunt. But whether that was true or not, Kardashian's name became even more well - known the world over. The multi - billion - dollar Harry Potter franchise was more than just a series of films - it was a cultural phenomenon for an entire generation. The big - screen saga, which originates from JK Rowling's series of novels, comes to an end in July 2011 with the release of the final film, Harry Potter and Deathly Hallows: Part 2. But Harry Potter was forever immortalized in 2016, when Disney World added an entire theme park center around the magical Wizarding World. Whether you re fan of the Kardashian / Jenner clan or not, their impact on pop culture is undeniable. But when Caitlyn Jenner - then Bruce Jenner - announced on television, during the April 2015 Diane Sawyer interview, that she was transgender, it was more than just a reality show storyline. It catapulted transgender issues into the mainstream, igniting a progressive cultural shift. The former Olympian introduced World to Caitlyn on the July 2015 cover of Vanity Fair. And the Oscar for Best Picture go to. La La Land. Er, nope! During the 2017 live telecast of 89 Academy Awards, Warren Beatty and Faye Dunaway were given the wrong envelope when it came time to announce the winner for Best Picture. After slight hesitation on Beatty's part, they wrongly announced La La Land had won. But as the film's stars and producers gather on stage to accept the award, Academy's crew members rush forward with the correct envelope. In very shocking on - air moment, La La Land's Jordan Horowitz gracefully announced the correct winner was, in fact, Moonlight, and handed over the Oscar.

Frank Oceans follow - up to his acclaimed debut, Channel Orange, saw him taking rich, imaginative stories with biographical elements and refocusing his writing so that his actual life events become central narrative in his songs. What unfolds in Blonde is a vulnerable memoir that is self - interrogating; it reassemble fragments of memories to riff on love, growing up, and identity. The album begins with bittersweet pining for youthful affection and resettles at more somber crossroads of wisdom, parsing societal conceptions about intimacy while giving solemn tributes to past relationships. The rise of swag rap heading into 2010 makes for a fruitful decade for hip - hop artistsnamely., Those from Atlantato experiment with vocal intonations, adding another layer of texture to their songs. One result was the birth of mumble rap, term that has been used condescendingly at times but whose influence is undeniable. Subgenre popularity led to the ascent of artists such as Future and Young Thug, and influenced new generation of stars such as Gunna and Playboi Carti. Both young and old audiences should be thrilled by this evolution. In style of music that hinges on how you deliver your words, many artists have mastered how to coax more meaning into their verses by vocally emoting in every way imaginable. From Young Thugs partially unintelligible and serotonin - triggering hook on 2014s Lifestyle to Gunna and Lil Babys surging and twitchy 2018 track Drip Too Hard, innovations of mumble rap have given even more breadth to a genre that was never static to begin with. There is a tradition of films that take up the task of projecting pseudo - social harmony onto society. This decade's flagrant example of feel good movie center on demonstrating ostensibly positive relationships between white and black people is 2018 Green Book. The film takes an interesting piece of black history concerning travel during the Jim Crow era and commits memory crime of distorting what racism looks like beyond one redeemed white mans experience. Green Book, and its Oscar success, is especially emblematic of this decade, in which shallow calls for reconciliation obscure many racial injustices that still exist today.

Back in 2012, 30 Rock made the case that Hollywood would Drum up ensemble film about any holiday. In one episode, lovelorn Emma Stone declare in trailer for fake romantic comedy Martin Luther King Day, in the words of Martin Luther King, I just gotta go for it. The show was parodying a crop of movies from the late director Gary Marshall that attempted to imbue smaller American holidays with unearned sentimentality: New Year's Eve in 2010 and Valentine Day in 2011. The Excesses of the Holiday - Movie Industrial Complex are especially apparent when you consider how few classic films have been made about Thanksgiving. In fact, there isnt much of Thanksgiving pop - culture canon at all. Think about it: What are widely adored Thanksgiving equivalents of Miracle on 34 Street, Its Wonderful Life, Jingle Bells, How Grinch Stole Christmas, or Rudolph Red - Nose Reindeer? Even Halloween has a bigger pop - culture footprint, with Hocus Pocus, Monster Mash, Halloween, Craft, and Halloweentown. And yet Thanksgiving primary offerings include Planes Trains and Automobiles, Pieces of April, Charlie Brown Thanksgiving, and Arlo Guthries ' folk song Alices Restaurant, all classics in their own right, but still a bizarrely light roster for America's second - favorite holiday. Like Christmas, Thanksgiving is a day of indulgence, of relaxation, of communal comforts, of cold - weather cheer. So why the disparity? Robert Thompson, professor of pop - culture studies at Syracuse University, acknowledges that Thanksgiving has been edge out when it comes to distinct works of entertainment. That is partly a matter of unfortunate timing. Thanksgiving doesnt have a fixed date, and it has a fairly small window of opportunity, being a sandwich between two major days of celebration. It doesnt help that both Christmas and Halloween tend to spill out of their respective months into November. Stores still have Jack - olanterns and discount trick - or - treat candy on shelves after October, and Christmas decorations and music are everywhere before December 1. But Thanksgiving is still very much a day of cultural rituals. Perhaps the best distillation of Thanksgiving diversion came just over 30 years ago in 1985: During pregame coverage for the New York Jets game against Detroit Lions, sportscaster Ahmad Rashad proposed on air to Cosby Show actress Phylicia Ayers - Allen, who was at Macys Day Thanksgiving Parade. That moment, witnessed live by roughly 40 million people, unites three elements that still form the backbone of Thanksgiving recreation today: sitcoms, football, and Macys Day Parade. All of which unfold, of course, on television. Thanksgiving now in America is almost completely television - centric, Thompson told me, noting that the holiday is profoundly domestic. It is about food and traveling, but most of all, it is about home, fact bear out in Thanksgiving films like Home for Holidays and Whats Cooking. And, this being America, domestic holidays ca unfold without TV. In terms of Thanksgiving Day programming, most people tune in to one of three things: Macys Day Parade, football game, and Dog - related specials.

Mad Men

Who Is Don Draper? Is question that open premiere of the fourth Season of Mad Men. And that insiders joke, wink at viewers WHO have spent three years burrowing into cryptic Ad messages bury secrets and damaging psyche. Amcs Drama about Manhattan Advertising World in the early 1960s isnt just a cult favorite anymore; Mad Men has become a cultural phenomenon much in way Sopranos once were Two shows are mirror opposites, of course. Sopranos amuse viewers with unexpected glimpses of bourgeois ordinariness, lawn mowing, school meetings, psychotherapy inside the scary, alien world of organized crime. Mad Men offers far more commonplace milieu rat race and finds comedy in distortions of the rear - view mirror. There lie spectacle of people just like the US doing things that today seem scary and alien, like smoking, drinking old - fashioneds at lunch, letting children play with dry - cleaner bags. It series is set in Days Of ice - cold martinis and Cold War anxiety that has seduced contemporary fashion, advertising and even the English language. There are Mad Men Barbie and Ken dolls, Mad Men clothing line at Banana Republic and Pop Culture Books like Mad Men and Philosophy: Nothing is as it seem. The term Mad Men has become an adjective, shorthand way to describe things that are louche, elegant and dissipate in the Antediluvian Way. And accordingly, there is Mad Men overload on air and, in some corners, even backlash. Dons angst at times grow tiresome, as do his marital woes. Viewers yearn to get away from home and back to office skirmishes at his agency, Sterling Cooper. Fortunately, series creator, Matthew Weiner, has found a way to finesse Mad Men fatigue at the end of the third Season by giving his story mulligan. Sterling Cooper is starting over, as Sterling Cooper Draper Pryce, and so is Don. When the series began in 2007, its main characters were establish, slightly jade players in a field that was on top of its game in a nation still puffed up with postwar confidence and superpower brio. Advertising firm was so successful, despite its disreputable office parties, that it was practically white shoe. And its Creative Director, Don Draper, married to lovely Betty with two lovely children in a lovely suburb, had little to prove, except, perhaps, his effortless prowess as extramarital ladies man. But when Sterling Coopers, British parent company, was sold at the end of last season to an even bigger advertising behemoth, Don and his colleagues broke away and lost their complacency. Suddenly they become small and scrappy without huge accounts, vast office space and bottomless expenses of yesteryear. And that final episode, as Don bands his loyalists together to start a new firm, was the most exhilarating moment of the season. Now, at the beginning of Season 4, which begins next Sunday, its year later, and executives of Sterling Cooper Draper Pryce go on cattle calls to woo clients.
