Stories have been told throughout history since the time of cave men. Over the centuries, this has evolved into modern cinema, television, and even video games - but some of the most well known fables and fairy tales have endured and are still told today. Myths & Monsters is a 6-part documentary that chronicles the origin of some of the best known stories in Western culture.

The episodes begin with a well crafted introduction that gives a brief overview on the content of the documentary before diving into the meat of the series. This opening episode, dubbed Heroes & Villains, introduces the Hero’s Journey template as depicted in the book The Hero With A Thousand Faces and explains how each story is crafted around this and explores the ones that defy this template.

We will watch the first 2 episodes together and then have time for discussion.
