We all find characters we like whether on TV, the Silver Screen
or in comics. After a while we expect those characters to grow but
the hard part is how much growth and how fast. If a character
grows too much a sense of alienation sets in, too little and we
quickly outgrow the character. In this episode the Fulsome Foursome
assembles at full strength to take a look at what makes a good
character in fiction.
Topics Discussed Include: Night Manager, Ray Donovan, Superman American Alien, Secret Identities, the Odd Couple, Big Bang Theory, Spiderman, the Office, the illusion of change, growth vs stagnation vs capitalism and a special appearance by actor Steve Buscemi.
