The Enduring and Ageless Pee-Wee Herman

Pee-Wee Herman: the hyperactive man child widely popular in the eighties. His popularity included a tv show and two movies. After several attempts at a revival, Paul Reubens is coming back with his character in a new movie titled Pee-Wee’s Big Holiday. Why now? What is it about this character that fits into pop culture as we know it today? Is this just an attempt at rehashing an old formula as can often occur with studios or is this a fresh take for a new generation?

  • Been awhile since some conversations about Pee Wee Herman! Good stuff! – Jason052714 4 years ago

  • I have recently started re-watching Pee Wee's Playhouse on Netflix with my child, and am pleasantly surprised at how well it still works today. In some ways it may even be more progressive than today. Eg: Many of the actors are POC without implied stereotype, and traditional gender roles are often flipped too. The character of Pee Wee is enduring, I think, because he is so good and kind, yet still fun and recognizable to kids. A good example without being preachy. Maybe the show doesn't require a "fresh take" to work today. – KimMannix 4 years ago

Great article and great understanding of the text. Their multiple personas are intensely interesting and has me wondering about how as individuals we even characterize ourselves in fragments.

Gone Girl: The Complexity of Human Behavior

This film had a huge impact on me. I’ve only been able to sit through it once. For me, it opened up a whole new interest in foreign horror and their ability to pack it with genuine content as opposed to some other mass market appeal horror I’ve been subjected to. I enjoyed this article. You’ve put into words what I could not and clarified some parts that I wasn’t clear on. Well done.

The Philosophy of 'Martyrs': Transcendence in Torture

You’re article is both informative and entertaining. Especially since Into the Woods is set to come out soon. I’ll look to this as a guide.
