Prof. McHugh is one of those teachers whose lectures are mostly composed of questions. If the class doesn't answer some of the questions, she throws a fit. A lot of the times, people just didn't know the answers. McHugh acted like the class was lazy, but it was really annoying having a lecture be like a freaking quiz show. She really never lectured. Sometimes there would be a few lines about a film, or film technique. Also, her questions don't really seem to lead anywhere, so it's very tough to see what she wants you to learn, so rely on your TA. Also, her readings (while in some cases were interesting) were all over the place. I couldn't really understand what she wanted out of us. Also, sometimes she dug a little too deeply in the many questions she had for us. For example, after watching "The Good, the Bad, and the Ugly," she asked "What makes the good character good, the bad character bad, and the ugly character ugly?" Also, the class title was "Melodramas, Musicals, and Westerns." She never tied the three genres together.
