Episode 13: Katniss Everdeen

So after a short hiatus we’re back and talking about Katniss from The Hunger Games franchise, which is apparently now a HUGE deal. We read the book over the past week and we’re bringing you our take on a surprisingly good read. We draw comparisons to other hero cycle works and dystopian fiction, and specifically spend a large amount of time focused of how Katniss is a character that deals with living in a dystopia rather than a character who rebels against it or accepts their position.

    Terry Gilliam directed Brazil, not Michael Palin.
    What character are you going to study next week? I want to follow along by reading or watching the corresponding book or film.
    Thanks.

    Sorry about that, must’ve gotten my Python wires crossed, Michael Palin plays a major part in Brazil, and Gilliam directs.

    And I think next time we’re going to do Saurman next time, and we’ll certainly be bringing up stuff from the book that wasn’t in the movies, along with some material from The Silmarillion, specifically on the nature and role of the wizards. Saruman’s past and his true ambitions are laid out in the book specifically, along with the Scouring of the Shire section in Return of the King.
