‘Bridgerton’: A Period Drama Done Right

‘Bridgerton’: A Period Drama Done Right

Anna Huener, Staff Writer January 23, 2021
Netflix’s latest period drama, Bridgerton, created by Chris Van Dusen and directed by Shonda Rimes, premiered on December 25, 2020. The show immediately captivated viewers, and has secured a spot on Netflix’s top ten list even weeks later. The popularity is understandable: the costumes are delightful, as is the setting of the show. However, modern-day themes set Bridgerton apart.

Opinion: Stay home, Vermont

Anna Huener, Staff Writer December 7, 2020
On November 13, Governor Phil Scott issued an ordinance ordering Vermonters to halt multi-family gatherings, and closing bars and social clubs. Initially, I was shocked. I had convinced myself that the lockdown was done, forgotten, and never to happen again. Yet, here we were, eight months later, retreating into our homes. It was aggravating to see all this new freedom taken away after only a few months. But aggravation isn’t going to do anything to stop the virus or lower the cases in our small state. The best way to help, in this situation, is to do nothing at all.
