Another week means another opportunity to make a contribution to television history. I mean, what other show gives you the opportunity to help choose episode titles?
Today, it’s Episode 307 on deck. And your episode title choices are:
While Co-Executive Producer Ivon Bartok and the crew were burning the midnight (well, 9 p.m.) oil on set, I was back home watching director Paul Day’s cut of Episode 307 (script compliments of Ivon Bartok). This one is a real head spinner. Akemi actually jumped up off the couch in disbelief several times during the first screening. Then, I went through it for notes. Meticulous notes. Started at 6:00 and finished at 9:30.
Tomorrow, it’s the Episode 311 cast read-thru – which means we’re a day away from the Episode 311 production meeting – which means we’re only two days away from the start of production on Episode 311 AND the start of prep on Episode 312. 312! After reading the script, Paul said the same thing he said after reading last season’s penultimate episode (featuring that bloody family reunion at the Ishida Palace): “How are we going to top this one?”. Oh, don’t you worry. We will.
What’s this? What does it do? Who possesses one in the Dark Matter universe? What fictional universe also makes use of one (or variation thereof)? What fictional universe will be making use of one (or variation thereof)?
Hey, it’s been ages since I’ve done a mailbag. If you have any questions for me, Dark Matter-related or not, fire away. I’m feeling refreshingly honest this week!
