As one might expect, I have Thoughts about it. Most of them are fairly trivial, but there's a big issue that's bothering me.

Spoiler cut in case I wasn't actually the last person to see this mofo )

I’m thinking I want to write an essay about the metanarrative of Undertale and how it shows off the way stories are told in games as opposed to other, strictly linear forms of media. Possibly it will involve comparing and contrasting Undertale with The Stanley Parable. If anyone can think of other games that play with narrative that way, I’m open to suggestions.

This installment of Thinking Too Much is about My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic. But only in part. More generally, I want to talk about certain challenges unique to serial fiction, particularly in the Internet age.

As before, opinions expressed herein are my own, and I don't claim to be an expert on anything spoken about below. If you disagree with anything I've written, or just want to discuss it further, feel free to comment and put your two cents in.

On Friday, the parental units and I went to see The Muppets. I'm not going to post a real review of the film; I'll leave that in more capable hands. Instead, the following is the first part of a (hopefully) ongoing series called Thinking Too Much, in which I take a piece of popular culture and give it far more analysis and consideration than it really deserves. I can't guarantee that what I write will always make sense, but I will endeavor to at least make it entertaining.

A quick caveat before we start: While I'm a fan of the Muppets and Jim Henson's work in general, I'm far from an expert on either one. Feel free to make corrections or clarifications in the comments.

Spoilers for the new Muppet movie ahead. Read at your own risk. )
