Season 2, Episode 7: The Action Genre and Spirit Riding Free
We continue our exploration of genre, again with help from the Netflix series Spirit Riding Free. This time it’s episode 3 from season 6: Lucky and the Frontier Phillies. The Action Genre has sixteen different subgenres! This week, we’ll just look at one. It’s an Action/Adventure story where it’s person against nature and the environment is the villain.
