Look Into My Eyes

Nov 29, 2023

This week it's our final episode of Season 1, in which we talk about the entire book and TV Adaptation together, it's our longest episode yet! Within we consider each of the main characters and talk about their development while trying to synthesise everything together a discussion of the book's ultimate theme and thesis statement. Alongside the usual fan fiction requests and Donut Man digressions this is a wonderful way to round off this series, enjoy!

Stick around at the end for Rosemary's theories about Book 2 and an exclusive announcement about next season!
