The Never-Ending Story

Amanda Hess in The New York Times has a piece that examines how nothing ever ends anymore in regards to intellectual property. Movies go on forever in sequels, prequels, and other adaptions. Cancelled television shows come back. The dead never stay dead.

We needed stories to end so we could make sense of them. We needed characters to die so we could make sense of ourselves.

It’s an amazing essay.
