Topic: How Tricksters Have Contributed to the Anti-Hero Revolution of American Television
Choose one trickster such as Anansi, the Native American Coyote, Brer Rabbit, the Monkey King, etc… and ARGUE that they have contributed to the Anti-Hero movement going on in American television. Characters like Tony Soprano (The Sopranos), Walter White or Jesse Pinkman (Breaking Bad), Jimmy McNulty (The Wire), Don Draper (Mad Men), Nucky Thompson (Boardwalk Empire), Jackson “Jax” Teller (Sons of Anarchy), Vic Mackey (The Shield), Rick Grimes (The Walking Dead), Jimmy McGill (Better Call Saul), and Daenerys Targaryen (Game of Thrones) etc… have become common in media today despite being terribly flawed and in many cases evil- unlike in past times where good triumphs over evil, the guy gets the girl, and everybody lives happily ever after. Must use 3 of the shows listed and base it off of 1 trickster in literature.
