What I am binge watching

Posted on: June 13, 2019

Yesterday I shared what I was binge listening to during my break. Today I share what I am binge watching — Lucifer.

When I first started watching Lucifer on Netflix, I did not realise that it was originally on another network. That network let the show go, but its fans petitioned for it to live. Netflix came to the rescue and the series lives on.

The premise of the show is deceptively simple: The Devil leaves hell to live in Los Angeles (the city of angels) and ends up working with a police detective to solve crimes. But show goes beyond the usual fish-out-of-water trope to explore moral conundrums and to question established standards.


Video source

As an educator, I like how there is a reflective component not only in the form of the video above, but also in the behind-the-scenes videos that the cast shared over the last few seasons.

I also like how the fans took ownership of the show as a result of this outreach. They helped give the show new life when it desperately needed a saviour. I see parallels of how skilful and strategic sharing by an educator of his/her own life can nurture ownership of learning among students.
