Hey folks! I haven’t been updating here, I know, but I’ve been cranking out pop culture posts on Overthinking It for your entertainment:
Is Batman a Virgin?: Examining how Batman subverts the usual action hero trope of superior virility.
Suits and the Unsustainable Premise: How long can a show’s core premise strain our suspension of disbelief before breaking? And why do we let them get away with it?
Mass Effect 3 and the Ethics of Revolutionary Choices: In which we talk about the ending of ME:3.
The Evitability of Football Narratives: Why the stories we craft around sports – particularly football – are built differently from all other stories.
So read those, why don’t you?
