This week we finally heard those magical words the world has been waiting for: "Eh, what's up, Doc?" And it was well worth the wait.
The Tunes weren't the only famous faces making the rounds this week. There was a reunion between a Spice Girl-esque pop group. Plus, one of Marvel's favorite foes is coming to the world of streaming. Then there was a shoutout to the Insta-famous crowd, brought to you by the next generation of the Family Coppola, while another story noted the dangers of our overly profiled digital world.
As our actual social lives finally find a pulse, don't forget what helped you through the past year: storytelling and screen time. Don't quit them now! Here are some of the stories coming soon to a screen near you.
