5 Reasons to Watch 'Schitt's Creek'

5 Reasons to Watch 'Schitt's Creek' Before Season 6

"David, stop acting like a disgruntled pelican!- Moira


Once and while a show comes around that just includes all the best things. Outrageous and funny characters, cute relationships, good character development, and fantastic writing. "Schitt's Creek" has all those parts that contribute to what makes a show great. Starting the show, one can't help progressing until there are no more episodes left. Reasons to binge are large, but here are the best five reasons.

1. The cast is hysterical.

The series starts out with a very wealthy family, a video store owner, and soap-opera star, falling from their fortunes and getting stuck in a middle of nowhere town. They then have to acclimate from living a life of private jets and privileged life to living out of a motel in a town called Schitt's Creek. They each have their quirks and each are funny in different ways. Every episode has you laughing at some dumb thing Alexis said or a witty come back from David.

2. Moira's outrageous outfits.

Moira never dresses lazy or half-assed. She constantly wears outrageous and outlandish outfits that have her standing out among the town. From extravagant dresses to crazy fur hats, she always has some crazy get up that bound to keep the show interesting.

3. It's created by a father and son.

Father and son Daniel and Eugene Levy write, produce, and act in this show together. They then play son and father on the show as well. Their dynamic is evident on the screen, where they connect and bring in others to create the funny Rose family.

4. David and Patrick are adorable.

One of the main couples in the show, David and Patrick are a cute couple that grows a lot throughout the series. They go from being business partners to real-life partners. They help each other with their problems, whether with David's fear of seriousness and commitment and Patrick's newness with dating men. They have downright adorable scenes in the show involving romantic gestures and just thoughtful connections. They support and love each other in such a wonderful and adorable way you can't help but not want to watch their relationship.

5. Great character development.

Mega-wealthy people with no regard to consequences learn that its good to put in hard work, find a passion, and understand what it means to be proud of yourself. All the characters have such interesting development throughout the seasons. They learn more about themselves, strive to be better people, and actually have regard to others. Characters outside of the family develop greatly too, from Stevie and her successful motel to Patrick and accepting his sexuality. No one is one dimensional on the show and although the characters can sometimes come across dumb or petty, they each grow in their own ways.

On June 22nd I Celebrated My 22nd

*Insert cliche Taylor Swift song "22"*


It's about time I turn 22. I've been told that after your 21st birthday, the years begin to fly past you in a blur. I don't know if I agree, but I can definitely say that I don't feel 22. Sometimes I look around at all the people who are freshmen in college, or juniors in high school, and I begin to reminisce about when I was their age. One thing getting older does do is make you a skeptical, cynical person.

I've thought a lot about my birthday as another day that I get to eat cake because let's face it, I'm not really here for anything else, except maybe a shot. I remember celebrating my birthday when I was younger was much different from what it turned into after I turned 20. Back in the day, I would celebrate my birthday with a pool party. Pizza, chips, cake, and soda. A few balloons and candles and that was it. I'd only invite my closest friends and we'd have so much fun.

I miss that kind of birthday. The kind you pick out an outfit for days prior, the kind you get so excited for and can't sleep, the kind that makes you feel special. It doesn't feel like that anymore. What it feels like now is, "welp, there goes another year." This line is also applicable to New Year's Eve, but we'll cross that bridge six months from now.

My birthday is pretty uneventful. It feels like the spark is gone, the excitement is gone. I wish I could feel happy that I'm turning 22, but I also know that it's just a reality that we all get older and things like birthdays begin to feel strange. You're faced to realize that you're supposed to have gained another year of experience and intelligence in the aspects of life, but it's almost like you feel the same.

It's safe to say that this has been a bit of an existential-crisis-themed birthday, but I'm just a little scared of getting older. I think we all reach a point where you realize you aren't invincible anymore. It's time to see what's in store for the future, what your career goals are, where you plan to move to after graduation, how to eat better, and how to feel like you've reached your full potential. It's a bittersweet moment in my life, but I'm ready to see what's next.

Poetry On Odyssey: The Light That Is Manhattan

A poem about anticipation.


Almost there.

The subway station is cold and narrow

But the staircase is just ahead.

No more corners, maps, or the like,

Just the light at the top of the stairs.

They say this city is filled with dreams.

Desires that may not even exist yet.

Dreams that have yet to be achieved,

or so the glow in front of me says.

The wonder builds as the ambiguous light at the top of the

Subway station stairs get brighter.

These steps are a two way street of

Excitement up

Fulfillment down.

May this light soon turn into

Roaring streets

Calm corners

Tranquil parks, and

dreams obtained.

The bright light I see in front of me is the glow of the city.

32 steps and I'm home.
