This week on Remarkist: Vampires, mermaids, and a young Tom Hanks, too... 🎟️ (July 20-25, 2022)
Here's what we have in store for you this week on our fandom app and ecosystem.
As an app and ecosystem created by and for fandoms, Remarkist doesn’t just belong to one community or franchise. Our members have hosted watch parties, listening sessions, book club meetups, game nights, and other fannish events across countless series, movies, and genres. You name it, Remarkist can host it! 🎉🎉🎉
We’ll share a highlight list of community events you can join each week. And if you don’t see something you love, fear not: you can sign up for free, create your own events, invite your friends and make new ones at Remarkist! 👥
The following is just a sample of what we have on the docket this week. To view our full calendar 📅, scroll down to the bottom of this page and follow instructions to join Remarkist.
See the inner workings of a murder trial with The Staircase on Netflix. 🦉
Once upon a time, a war novelist and politician with a secret was flung into the spotlight when his wife was found dead at the bottom of the stairs in their Durham, North Carolina home. The case of Michael Peterson drew international attention and inspired a crew of French filmmakers 🎥 to produce a 2004 documentary about the trial, and a 2018 follow-up on Netflix.
If you’ve started the Netflix docuseries and want to catch an episode with fan commentary, check out host @motherofpekes’ watch party of The Staircase (Season 1, Episode 3) on Wednesday, July 20 from 8:30 to 9:30 PM ET.
Vamp it up with Season 4 of What We Do in the Shadows. 🧛
If true crime isn’t your thing, but you’re still up for something spoooooky 😱, you can tune in for What We Do in the Shadows Season 4. Based on the 2014 film, this gaggle of night creatures will keep you laughing until sunrise.
Catch host @emermac’s back-to-back episodes of What We Do in the Shadows (Season 4, Episodes 1 & 2) on Wednesday, July 20, from 1:00 to 2:00 PM ET.
Enjoy a retro rom-com with Splash, starring Daryl Hannah and Tom Hanks. 🧜♀️
In this 1984 hit, Tom Hanks is less "America’s Dad” and more “Cute Guy You Bring Home to Meet Mom and Dad.” 😍 Hanks’ character falls in love with a mermaid, played by Daryl Hannah, who has to learn the ropes of life on land (turns out you can’t just walk around in the buff all the time). Chaos ensues as Hanks must choose between land and sea, and if The Little Mermaid is one of your favorite Disney movies, you may just love Splash, too.
Enjoy a Friday movie night with hosts @hunter and @elle, featuring Splash this Friday, July 22, from 9:30 to 11:15 PM ET.
Find out who will get a rose on the latest episode of The Bachelorette. 🌹
Before there was Love Island and 90 Day Fiance, there was Bachelor Nation. The Bachelorette is a phenomenon as American as apple pie 🥧, something we all know will probably continue as long as dating exists.
Remarkist is home to a thriving Bachelor(ette) fandom that gathers weekly to enjoy new episodes and chat about them afterward. Who kissed whom? What wacky hijinks will the contestants get up to this week? And since when is “Meatball Enthusiast” an occupation?
Discuss these questions and more with host @diana and fans at Remarkist’s watch party for The Bachelorette (Season 19, Episode 2) this Sunday, July 24, from 10 AM to 12:15 PM ET.
Join the Roadies fandom as they begin their series of watch parties. 🎸
If you want to join a TV watch party group but like to start from the beginning, you can start with Remarkist’s watch parties for Roadies, a short-lived comedy about roadies of the fictional Staton-House Band. This Cameron Crowe series is a must-see for anyone who loved Almost Famous.
Hop on the tour bus with host @kidd for the series premiere of Roadies this Sunday, July 24, from 9:15 to 10:30 PM ET.
