We finish discussioning the first book by analyzing the last chapter. A fram-by-frame analyze of the TV spot with footage from district 12. Other breaking news includes a Katniss barbie doll and video game set to release as well as what record the Hunger Games has already broken. On our musixc segment we play a clip of One ENgine adn discuss where it may fit into the film.
We discuss some big news stories including the cast touring US cities, Safe & Sound music video, a new HG video game, some new TV spots as well as other news. During our chapter discussion we bring up the topic of if it was a sin to kill Marvel, Cato or both. Do they have religions that would make them think it was a sin? We also wonder if Katniss would have been able to kill Peeta when it came down to the two of them. If she had to kill Peeta would her life be better dead and regretting killing Peeta or dying with him. We point out the theme that if you look at life through a different perspective, it can be better. Peeta is a role model for not changing who he is because of society. We also argue what color nightlock berries are. A song is featured that really represents the Hunger Games and the chapters we discuss. Lastly we review the photos in the Official Hunger Games Companion. It is a fun packed episode!
