nakhone: Are these lessons in order?

I finished watching the Lesson 1 Intro but can't find lessons 2 thru 5?  Any suggestions?  Tried searching for it to no avail.
RBryan: I am curious

I am by trade, a stage actor, interested in writing.  Well, that doesn't really impact my question.  I suppose this is a type o f prologue.

My thought, my curiosity... So many references appear in Mr. McKee's first presentation.  I just signed up yesterday.  Some references I have seen or read, some I have not.  As you, fellow Loguemates, watch these videos, how often do you turn to the sources that he cites?  There are at least 9 different films and books cited in this first video.  Tough to view/read  these works before going on to the next video.

What do some of you do with this?  A rhetorical question really.  I will continue to read comments and see if I can get some hints.  I realize with any discipline it is important to be well read, well viewed.  One just hast to ramp up the reading and viewing I suppose.

Cheers.

The funeral prologue at the beginning of this great Western - establishing the credentials of the lead players in countering social inequity, without causal connection to the main story . . .

Is McKee saying EVERYTHING that comes before the inciting incident can be considered prologue? Anything that doesn't directly relate to the main central story? I always thought a prologue is something that is or can be very explositional, character or setting backstory, a tonal introduction to the world?

How about a novel whose first part starts with a prologue and then rolls into the setup before the inciting incident? Is the prologue include both the titled prologue and the first part of the main story that comes before the inciting incident?

I gained a clarity of prologue's definition; very helpful.  Even more helpful, it's purpose as defined @ 7 min. 01 sec.  Having watched "Ninja Assassin" this past weekend, already a mentioned example for reflection.
