Shakespeare's Hamlet is a play rife with moral dilemmas. Religious codes often clash with desires and instinctual feelings in the minds of the characters, calling into question which courses of action are truly the righteous paths. In Hamlet's case, such conundrums are debilitating and cause a frustrating, eventually fatal lack of action. Indeed, the absence of moral clarity in the play is arguably the root of most of the tragedy that is played out in the final scenes. Because of this, the issues in Hamlet provide an excellent basis from which to delve into an exploration of how religion motivates human actions. The characters' dilemmas concerning two great moral questions, suicide and murder, demonstrate the centrality of this motivation, both within the confines of the play and within the larger scope of human society.
Finally, in a recent episode of the podcast Talkin’ Tunes with Rob Paulsen , guest Billy West sat down to recreate a scene from Back to the Future , substituting his Futurama characters Fry and Professor Farnsworth for Marty McFly and Doc Brown. The scene in question is when Marty finds Doc after traveling back to 1955, and it’s incredible to watch Billy West go back and forth between the voices. The voices don’t match what West looks like, so it never appears as if he’s actually the one doing the speaking. It’s all so bizarre and impressive.
