Episode 23: Emotional Investment in Fictional Characters

As the unusually long title suggests, this episode covers the ups and down of being emotionally invested in characters from books, movies, and more. We discuss "over-gasping," existential crises, and our favorite crying movies. Then, Julie takes serious issue with a weirdly misleading Twilight list. Watch out for some debatable spoilers for the 24 year-old Sailor Moon anime and Downton Abbey.     Keywords: sad, cry, fiction, crazy, Sailor Moon, flashback, Usagi, Molly, comic, manga, platonic friendship, female friendship, Crystal, Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D., gasp, Doctor Who, Walking Dead, Downton Abbey, soul murder, Batman, Before Sunrise, Linklater, philosotainment, rotoscope, Iron Giant, Synechdoche, Shopgirl, A.I., Bright Star, Kuch Kuch Hota Hai, Prince of Egypt, Children of Men, Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind, Up, #RelationshipGoals, Disney Princesses, Cinderella, Mulan, Pocahontas, Twilight, Misery, Antis, Antwis
