Successful launch of “Hooked”

Back to Blog

January 22 was the launch of a brand-new MHC program, Hooked: A Critical Look At Shows We Love. About 40 people gathered at Guthries in Lewiston to discuss the theme of work in the show Breaking Bad with University of Southern Maine philosophy professor Jason Read. A group of avid fans led the discussion, all excited to dive into character analyses and plot dissections. One audience member expressed his gratitude for an event that acknowledged the fact that many of today’s television programs merit the critical discussion usually reserved for films.

The launch of Hooked received a front-page write-up in the Sun Journal the next day. We look forward to the next event, a discussion of feminism in Orange is the New Black on February 19 at 7:30 pm.
