What surprised you about pop culture this year?

As bad as 2021 could be, pop culture has given us some bright spots. Be that pretty good movies, solid video games, or enchanting novels, there were many ways to escape from a year that unusually jumped back and forth between the tolerably bad and the painfully painful.

In many cases, the things we wanted or needed to be good in the end were good, maybe even great. You already know that a Marvel movie will give you a solid 2.5 hours of fun, or yes Netflix original (which the company really deserves to tell you exists) will usually be worth a drink on the weekends. More interesting, however, are things you didn’t expect to enjoy as much as you did, or things you initially had mixed or negative thoughts about, but eventually won. That kind of unpredictability is always welcome.

There were a few pleasant surprises for me during 2021. I didn’t fully expect to win me over Hawkeye of all the shows, or get a little pleasure from the absurd short-lived Cowboy Bebop. Like many others, I was not ready for it Arcane to win me over completely, or for Lords of the Universe: Revelation to make He-Man’s corner of the universe worth worrying about. As for the film, I was thrilled Malignant, No time to die, i Dune, to name a few. And because of the games, I came really excited Guardians of the Galaxy (as a lot of people) after E3 is shown, along with a dazzling anime RPG Scarlet Nexus and a dizzying first-person shooter Boomerang X.

As we are on the last weekend of 2021, tell us: what have you watched, played or read this year that surprised you? Alternatively, is there something you thought you would love more than you actually wanted? Let us know in the comments below and have a nice holiday.
