The inaugural "episode" of The Master Debates is currently ongoing and I hope everyone is enjoying it. I'm in no way trying to take any focus off of TMD I but I feel it is time to announce the topic for TMD II to allow ample time for submissions. So without further adieu, the topic for the second Master Debate is....
From a purely artistic standpoint, when should the Three Stooges have called it quits?
Unlike TMD I this question has more than two answers. It could be anything from "they never should have made a film" (which would be silly since this is a Three Stooges website) to "their canon was perfect, artisically speaking, I wouldn't change a thing" and inbetween. You can pick a landmark moment (when Curly could no longer continue, when Shemp died, when their shorts contracts with Columbia expired, etc) to a particular short or movie.
Every member of this website, with the exceptions of myself and whomever wins TMD I is eligible to participate. All you have to do is send me a short submission via private message explaining what position you will take. I will choose the two submissions that I think will be the most interesting. The due date for these submissions is Sunday, February 1st. The winner will receive a one year subscription to the Three Stooges Journal compliments of threestooges.net.
I look forward to reading the submissions and hope to see even more interest and participation. Good luck and happy master-debating!
