1. overwhelmingly

Today we are going to learn “overwhelmingly”. It means that incapable of being resisted.
eg:
(1) Puerto Ricans overwhelmingly voted for U.S. statehood for their island in a non-binding referendum.
(2) Starring Israeli Gal Gadot as the Amazonian warrior princess, “Wonder Woman” is the rare female-led film in an overwhelmingly male superhero landscape.

2. riveting

Another word is “riveting”. It means so interesting or exciting that you cannot stop watching it or listening to it.
eg:
(1) Despite fans’ doubts and fears going in, the 2017 French Open turned out to be a riveting, satisfying spectacle.
(2) US Representative Emanuel Cleaver describes Comey’s testimony as “riveting”.
