Ivory Tower made its triumphant return last Thursday night, as students descended upon Boylston Hall’s Fong Auditorium to watch perhaps the least Harvardy form of entertainment—the soap opera.
Harvard’s only soap premiered its fourth season to a gleeful crowd, marked by enthusiastic hugs at the door, wild mwahhing across the auditorium, and a palpable oozing of excitement.
Kristina R. Yee ’10, had “been anticipating the premiere all week!”—and came prepared with Tealuxe, Terra chips, and Sour Patch Kids.
It was not only Harvard students, however, that found room in their big brains to appreciate the amusing moments that made up the half hour episode of Ivory Tower. Nick A. Athanassiou, a graduate student at Boston College, follows Harvard-Radcliffe Television’s hallmark program religiously.
“I am a huge fan,” he said. “I watch it on YouTube.”
Stereotypical Harvard types—including a guy with his glasses taped together Harry-Potter style and a man who read Plato’s “Protagoras and Meno,” throughout a good chunk of the show—and more random visitors alike seemed to enjoy it, cheering and laughing throughout
According to the show’s website, the fourth season will debut online next week.
