DToT #18 – Epic Fail Like the Greats!

This entry is part 20 of 48 in the series Derailed Trains of Thought

Yet again, I’m posting waaaay after the fact.

Ever had one of those days? Your father’s been murdered by your uncle and you just don’t know what to do. Your best friend’s fallen down the stairs, broken his leg, gotten bone marrow in his blood, and died. And your crazy neighbor’s crazy girlfriend just plummeted to her death because she saw a nun. (That’s right, a nun.) Life’s a tragedy, isn’t it?
Death, disasters, and hollow victories focus this episode’s discussion of the art of the tragedy. What makes a good “bad ending”? Is it more literary to make the audience depressed? What’s the meaning of it all? Listen as Tim and Nick wrangle with these intriguing questions, as well as review the summer blockbusters, in the latest episode of Derailed Trains of Thought.
