WHAT is this? Why, it’s the ice cream truck – courtesy of Block #2 director Sudz Sutherland. A special treat for the crew on his last day.

Finally started work on the script for the season finale today. Lots of balls in the air. The trick, as always, is to dovetail the varied arcs and storylines in dramatic and satisfying fashion – and also leave the door open for a second season. But once that’s done and I deliver Episode 10, it’s smooooooth sailing!
Hard to believe we’re a little over a third of the way through the season. The first cuts are coming in, our second to last block starts official prep tomorrow, and discussion has begun on the opening title sequence. Surprisingly, it looks like we may actually do a full and proper one for this show. I’ve always been a big fan of those extended sequences with their memorable opening themes that always set the tone for the series. I mean, can you imagine Stargate’s SG-1 or Atlantis or the Star Treks without their stirring orchestral intros? Or The Sopranos without Tony’s long drive through Jersey set to Alabama 3’s “Woke Up This Morning”? Or a roaring dragon in place of Game of Thrones’ sweeping instrumental-backed overview of Westeros and Essos?
Quick! Name your Top 3 favorite t.v. themes.
