(Three-act structure does suck. The “second act” always needs more meat.)

    I prefer five act myself. The main weakness of three act is the middle act needs support in the middle. That’s why modern versions lean so hard on try/fails cycles and other contrivances. Five act remedies this by forcing the main character’s key moral and plot decision to be at the center point of the story.
