Another Week Goes By...
Details are still under wraps, but we're well into filming Hemlock Grove and it's great to see how it's all coming together. Great cast and crew, and that really fun sense of doing something outside the cookie-cutter. It's one of those shows where the crew is eager for the next script because they really want to know what's coming next. That wow-factor is actually pretty rare in my experience, and it's a good feeling when it happens. Anyhow, "coming soon."
Gearing up this morning by watching an episode of Hell On Wheels on AMC... this episode featuring BSG and Falling Skies alum Ryan Robbins. I haven't managed to keep up with this show so I'm a little unclear on who's who. But I did learn that frontier life was tough, crime doesn't pay and I would not want to be shot and then operated on without anesthetic. Last night I caught yet another showing of Casino, also on AMC, with some of the best euphemisms ever inserted to replace naughty words. "You told my friend to stuff himself? You stuffin' greaseball!" I'd like to say that the message of Casino is that crime doesn't pay, but actually, for the main characters anyway, it paid pretty well for quite some time.
And now back to it!
