This week on Buffy and the Art of Story – Beauty and the Beasts (Season 3 Episode 4 of Buffy the Vampire Slayer). This podcast episode talks about:
(1) a very subtle Midpoint turn;
(2) what is plot and what is subplot;
(3) the challenges with the metaphor to abuse within a relationship;
(4) point of view and playing fair with the audience; and
(5) use of voiceover.
As always, the discussion of Buffy the Vampire Slayer is spoiler-free, except at the end (with plenty of warning).
