This is the time of year when I put on the pounds. Between show wrap and my return to Vancouver, it’s about four weeks packed with goodbye lunches and dinners. Farewell to friends. Farewell to co-workers. Farewell to the crispy sirloin, green pepper and onions taco at Campechano. I’ll miss you all!
Today, was a simultaneous hello/goodbye with one of my very favorite people, Marc Bendavid (Dark Matter’s ONE/Derrck Moss/Jace Corso), who made time for lunch with yours truly despite a very busy Toronto production schedule.
Marc contemplates lunch at Forno Cultura, a casual Italian eatery that offers up home made breads, pizzas, sandwiches, Italian desserts and, of course, coffee.
Marc contemplates our dessert medley.
And then after dessert, it was MORE DESSERT at SOMA Chocolates. A little shout-out to our favorite Android. Z for Zobot!
Then, no doubt, the highlight of his trip to T.O. – meeting Suji.
Oh yeah. No one appreciates a scalp massage like this girl.
Akemi, Lulu, Suji, and I were delighted to spend time with Marc. Hope to see him in Vancouver this summer!
And then tonight, it was dinner with Co-Executive Producers Ivon Bartok and Robbie David. Okay tacos, some pretty good wings, but an outstanding dulce de leche cake for dessert!
Just because production has ended doesn’t mean I’ve finished work on Dark Matter. I completed my cut of Episode 312 (“My Final Gift To You”) today. Director Bruce McDonald, editor Norman Wong, and our cast deliver one of this season’s very best episodes. It one rivals Episode 310 (“Built, Not Born”) for the number of incredibly touching character moments. Both guaranteed to give you all the feels.
Yesterday morning, we were at Deluxe for the Episode 301 (“Being Better Is So Much Harder”) mix.
Friday morning, we’re back at it for Episode 302 (“It Doesn’t Have To Be Like This”).
Hey, we have one final Dark Matter season three episode to title – and it’s the finale know less! Tune in to tomorrow’s blog entry for a chance to opinionate on this one!
