It's a week of pondering other people's opinions. First, Craig and John take a look at the Bechdel Test: is it a useful metric for screenwriters, or just meaningless checkbox-ticking?

From there, we dive into David Wong's analysis of troubling superhero lessons. Are these just updated versions of the classic myths, or do they say something specific about modern times?

Finally, we heap praise on screenwriter Justin Marks's article on what it's like to be a working writer who is mostly unproduced.
