Episode 2: A Hate Letter to Katniss Everdeen

Episode 2: A Hate Letter to Katniss Everdeen

This week Jet Wolf and Ultrace over-discuss:

  • The Borderlands 2 release date trailer. “Excited” is an insufficient word for Ultrace’s level of enthusiasm.
  • Hunger Games, oh Hunger Games, how you have plagued us. Jet Wolf especially has Thoughts About Things. [Note that this is a spoiler-heavy discussion. You’ll want to jump to 59:23 from when we caution you about spoilers to avoid them. Yes, this means most of this episode is Jet Wolf bitching about Hunger Games.]
  • The Final Round. We again challenge each other with pointless comparisons. How is Ultrace so much better at this than I am?

      In which we all lose.

    The Superbowl of Death with Kids!!!
    Love your point that Katniss regresses over the course of the trilogy unlike Frodo or Luke Skywalker who grew as characters. War is Hell isn’t enough of a reason to get away with that.

      It’s kind of insane how she learns nothing. Three books of not insignificant length, and she only gets worse. Stories aren’t supposed to work like that. I’m kind of morbidly interested to read something else by this author (as her notes at the end indicated this wasn’t her first published work, if I remember correctly after my brain vomited) to see if my issues with Hunger Games are specific to this story or endemic to the author.

    Dude. Hunger Games is way more of a love triangle than Twilight. Please don’t make me talk any more about this. ;)
