5 Reasons You Should Be Watching 'Maniac' On Netflix

You need to be watching this series.


"Maniac" is a new limited series out on Netflix, starring Jonah Hill, Emma Stone, Justin Theroux, Sonoya Mizuno, and Sally Field. If the all-star cast isn't enough to get you to watch, here are 5 other important reasons you should dive into this Netflix series:

1. It is totally MIND BENDING.

"Maniac" is completely mind bending — from the AdBuddy driven advertising world the characters live in, to the pharmaceutical trial featured, to the way the main character's brains mesh together. If you like shows like "Westworld" and "Game of Thrones," you'll like "Maniac."

2. Annie and Owen are amazing main characters

Annie is recovering from a personal tragedy and Owen is schizophrenic, and they're each looking to cure their mental issues in this mysterious pharmaceutical trial. They don't know each other at the start, but the way their lives intertwine is WILD.

3. The trippy visuals and story lines.

The opening sequence of Maniac is narrated by one of the doctors and starts you right in on a trippy journey about how life began on earth. Things progress from there, with wild and bright visuals being a cornerstone of this series.

4. Dr. Fujita's bangs and glasses

Yes, Dr. Fujita is super smart, complex and interesting. Her agoraphobia keeps her holed up in the lab most of the time, but she is definitely running the show in this experiment. Her blunt cut bangs, big glasses, and constant chain smoking make her a joy to watch anytime she's on the screen.

5. You can sit back and enjoy the ride!

This series will blow your mind, and at some points, you may not get what is happening. But that's okay! Just sit back and enjoy the ride, and let "Maniac" take you in. If you want a deeper understanding of all of the events, storylines, and easter eggs, I recommend reading the Vulture episode recaps.

Dealing with the inevitable realities of college life.

Course registration at college can be a big hassle and is almost never talked about. Classes you want to take fill up before you get a chance to register. You might change your mind about a class you want to take and must struggle to find another class to fit in the same time period. You also have to make sure no classes clash by time. Like I said, it's a big hassle.

This semester, I was waitlisted for two classes. Most people in this situation, especially first years, freak out because they don't know what to do. Here is what you should do when this happens.

Is there really such a difference in Challah bread or Easter Bread?

Ever since I could remember, it was a treat to receive Easter Bread made by my grandmother. We would only have it once a year and the wait was excruciating. Now that my grandmother has gotten older, she has stopped baking a lot of her recipes that require a lot of hand usage--her traditional Italian baking means no machines. So for the past few years, I have missed enjoying my Easter Bread.
