  1. Have an action packed night of TV planned with new episodes of 'The Walking Dead', 'True Detective' and 'Black Sails'. That's some must watch TV!

  2. True Detective just makes everything else on television pale in comparison. Really.

  3. I think by the end of watching True Detective, I will have earned 3 credits for philosophy, 3 credits for theology, and may find out who killed this woman....

  4. Dear Launch Pad Pilot Competition ... I am in you.

  5. Out with 2013 and in with 2014!

  6. Just an FYI, people... after I win the lottery toonight I'll be immediately going into film funding/producing mode. Just thought I'd get that out there.

  7. Follow Up Slugline Question: What do you think the difference is between (OC) and (OS)?

  8. Taking a poll here: What's your preference for a character who is not visible, but heard - speaking on the phone (via speakerphone for ex.): (V.O.) (O.S.) or (O.C.)?

      I've used varying styles. Mostly, however, I utilize (ON PHONE) as an extension or (filtered, phone) as a parenthetical. It's all a style choice. Whatever works best in the scene and fits with the overall tone.

  9. I'm eleven episodes deep into MASTERS OF SEX and its fantastic. This is filling the BREAKING BAD void just nicely.

  10. Clocking in at 89 pages, the fastest first draft I've ever done for my first Horror/Thriller. It's not great by any means, but hoorah, it's done. FOR NOW.

  11. for dialogue-- I'm trying to think of a situation where the training is worse/more grueling than the actual thing that's being trained for. Any ideas?

  12. Anyone read anything funny lately?

  13. Great ending. Much better than "cut to black..."

      Apropos Jesse was the lone "survivor" as it were. His arc was most defined. And that it was Walter that needed to "free" him from his "slavery" again was apropos. Though it was one of the "quieter" episodes, it did what it was intended... to end. Now to wait two weeks for Walking Dead. :)

  14. What are you writing this weekend?

  15. I'm conflicted. B.J. and the Bear or Who's the Boss as the Rock/McG's follow-up to The Fall Guy?

  16. How does Joshua Jackson (Pacey!) keep getting roles? He has the personality and acting chops of lead paint.

  17. This guy is the fucking tits. Studios and prodcos take note.

  18. Thanks to Johnnie for all the new scripts and the infusion of energy. Keep it up.

  19. If it were a screenplay the final act of the Bradley Manning Story would cause a reader's head to explode.

  20. Any thoughts on Low Winter Sun pilot episode? I caught bits and pieces of it and other than the fact it tracked the script, I haven't decided what I think of it. (Breaking Bad was incredible, of course!)

      Finding anything to attach oneself to any of the characters, mainly Frank (the main protag?) was virtually nonexistent. Unfortunately all male lead characters (around 40 or older)are now under the "Walter White" scrutiny. Now, to compare the pilot for LWS and BB can not be done. Mr. White was instantly empathized, no one in LWS even came close. I'm giving it one more epi to make me interested. And yeah, sbbn, they seemed to have gone all in on the tonal thing. It seemed to me they...
