The Third Act Blues

Episode 275

It’s a problem plaguing Hollywood. We’ve all seen it a million times and it is very frustrating when it unfolds in front of you. Much like what is happening now as a major TV show wraps up its final episode. In this episode, Ric talks about how writers can have a great run of a show or movie(s) only to completely ruin the thing by trying to end it gracefully. Those of you who are Game of Thrones fans are becoming unwitting victims of this phenomenon right now. So much so that groups of fans have started petitions demanding the final season be re-done. It won’t happen, but then again, it’s hard to stop a shipwreck.

NEXT WEEK: Maintaining more than one thought at a time.
