For the second consecutive year, BSGE students, parents, and faculty purchased tickets to see the Mets at Citi Field on Friday, May 20th. For every $25 spent on a ticket, the school made $5. 85 members of the BSGE family sat together in a block of seats at the baseball game, and although it was a smaller turnout than last year, the school successfully raised $425. Although it was a chilly day, May 20th was an exciting game. The Milwaukee Brewers scored first, but the Mets ultimately won 3-2. Everyone in attendance also took home a free shirt from Citi Field.
Watching Cable TV is becoming less and less common with Netflix’s and Hulu’s increasing popularity among the younger generation. With YouTube videos such as vlogs and “Let’s Play”s, as well as Facebook videos gaining a wider audience, the TV industry is at risk. With all this competition, TV shows are easier than ever to watch on every device. We wanted to know which TV shows are most watched among middle schoolers at BSGE. Here, we’ve highlighted several of the shows voted most popular in our survey.
Rick and Morty is an animated show that follows the adventures of a scientist Rick Sanchez and his grandson Morty. The show started as a Back to The Future parody and evolved into its own full fledged show. The show has had two seasons with a third season in the works for late 2016. The show has met with critical acclaim for its witty humor and tackling some very dark themes in a lighthearted way. Lars Smeland ’20 said, “Rick and Morty is a great show that I would recommend to people who like Doctor Who and Back to the Future. The art is very simplistic and the show has a colorful supporting cast.”
