#99 Fireside Chat: Fireside Recs: 'Divergent' Sunday 17 March, 2013
“Fireside Recs: ‘Divergent'”
Miss Episode 99 live last night? Never fear! You can click here to listen to the recording or simply use the embedded player below!
Episode 99 of Hunger Games Fireside Chat will air live this Monday, March 18, at 10pm ET/7pm PT! This week, our panel of experts will include some of our fabulous friends from Down with the Capitol, Crystal of Mockingjay.net and FictionalFood.net, Courtney of Welcome to District 12, Kait from Victor’s Village, and Ashley of Divergent Lexicon!
It’s finally time for another Fireside Recs episode! Since casting for the Divergent movie is finally beginning to wrap up, we figured Veronica Roth’s YA dystopian series would make a fitting choice for this week’s discussion!
– We’ll spend the first half of the show talking about Divergent: why some of us like it/why some of us don’t like it, why it’s so popular amongst fans of The Hunger Games, what we think about the casting choices for the film adaptation, etc. Ashley from Divergent Lexicon will be joining us for this discussion, and we’re very excited to have her!
– The rest of the show will be spent on the IMDb topic that we had to postpone a couple of weeks ago. Remember when we found Trexler Hoverhound and other similarly mysterious characters on the Hunger Games IMDb page last year? Now it’s time to take a look at the Catching Fire IMDb page! Who is “Gamekeeper Disciple”? What about “District 4 Family Member”? Does the presence of a “District 11 Rioter” mean we’re going to see another D11 riot scene? While these roles are all clearly background/extra roles added to the page by the actors themselves, they may shed some light on what we can expect to see in November. (Thanks to Satsuma for this suggestion!)
