Jake Nevola ’14 began a trick by showing audience volunteers three cards, two red and one black, which he shuffled as he explained the three-card monte con game’s history. To ensure the volunteers understood the game, he showed them the cards again, only this time, all of them were black. When he flipped the cards over a third time, two were black and one was red. As the game progressed, it became obvious that nothing is as fair as one thinks.

The fourth season of “Arrested Development” was a pivotal one for its protagonist, Michael Bluth (Jason Bateman). Since the show began, Michael played the straight man, the only sane person in a family of mess-ups and thieves. Yet as the show continued, Michael’s façade slowly began to crack, and the latest season showed him as about as unlikable as the other members of his family.

As the 16 students who participated in the film department’s first winter foreign study program can tell you — Los Angeles, of course.

The Muppets puppet characters, a mainstay of American pop culture long before current Dartmouth students were born, were effectively rebooted with “The Muppets” (2011). Infused with meta-humor and modern sensibilities, the film brought the lovable scamps back into the cultural zeitgeist.
The film’s follow-up, “Muppets Most Wanted” (2014), seems to have done away with all of that. The half-hearted effort relies too much on the reputation of its main characters and lacks any attempt to build on established tropes.
