New Blog Focus: Death on Television

imageMy blog is changing its focus.

Let me know if you heard this joke?  George R. R. Martin, Joss Whedon, and Steven Moffat walk into a bar…and everyone you’ve ever loved dies.   On the surface, that’s not funny.  The funny is not the tragic death part, but  the part about  character death being so ubiquitous.   In the age of the great big television epic, characters die all the time.   In the past TV characters didn’t die all that much, but now it’s expected.

The aims of this blog:

• find meaning in character death
• memorialize fallen television characters
• discuss the televisual grieving process
• explore ways that mourning TV characters
• “embrace the pain, spank your inner moppet”
