What was that acronym that Maril mentioned regarding the reason there were so many directors? Is it referring to some kind of union? I always wondered why the show needed so many directors?
By the way, I am Team Jamie..nothing personal Blake.
Loved episode 35! Can't wait until season two begins so we can listen to your discussions about each episode
In the meantime, looking forward to watching the PCA in January. Hope you do a commentary on it.

Can anyone explain why it's an advantage to have a mix of book reader/fan and non-book reader in the writer's room? Seems to me that if you've read the books, and are truly passionate about the story, it would provide deeper knowledge and insight. Wouldn't this be an advantage in adapting book to screen?

I am thinking having non reader fan adds a level of objectivity in the adaptation process with limitations of episodes and creating visual and emotional appeal to the viewer

Blake Larsen said...

You literally ripped the words from my mouth. Perfect answer :)

sometimes you can be too close to the material to view it objectively so having non book readers helps to ensure objectivisim in the room and thus better scripts

I just finished the season of Outlander and I must say the show started slow got in a great groove but, who ever decided episode 15 and 16 should be based on a good man (to whom I just begun to respect) should be raped in jail by another man and rescued by a mini stampede of cattle should be fired. That was not a fitting end to the very 1st season. It makes me not even want to watch the 2nd. All I can see is Clare gets attacked while pregnant Jamie saves the day by allowing his man hood to be taken again. Epic Fail..So the question how on earth are you going to try and build Jamie reputation back up from the epic riseing TV Idol suicide? Because he is no longer a man I even consider a hero, role model nothing just nothing.
