It is a truth almost universally acknowledged that the final season, and especially the final episode, of Game of Thrones was terrible. But why? In this talk, Professor Cody Marrs will contrast GoT (and analogues like Lost and Killing Eve) with shows that concluded successfully (like Breaking Bad and The Sopranos), to explore why certain endings are satisfying — or not. This event is part of Screen Time with Your Humanities Professors, a series that investigates pop culture in surprising and revealing ways. Free lunch, students of all majors welcome. Sponsored by the Franklin College of Arts and Sciences and by the Willson Center for Humanities and Arts.

Marrs is professor of English at UGA. He’s a specialist in American literature, and recently he has taught classes on writers such as Mark Twain and Herman Melville, as well as courses on "Literature and Philosophy" and “The Great American Novel.”
