Just watched Charlie Jade
ep. #17 with our showrunner. Man, that is one powerful bit of TV. It felt more like an hour of story than forty minutes, but at no point did it seem slow. Just dense and rich and strange. The characters are strong, the stakes are compelling... I think we all did a hell of a job.
Good on ya, Mr. Blatjang. And good on ya, especially, Bob.
If only we'd figured out earlier what the show was. We (the writers) really hit our stride in eps. 17-20, dammit. All the other episodes we has to either write or at least break story on within our first two weeks on the show; these we got to write after we had a sense what Bob's vision was. If we get a second season, we'll really be able to go to town on that show.
The only thing I don'tlike from what I've seen so far is the title!
Charlie Jade just doesn't do it for me.
I like the title! Sure, it can't compare to the titles of some stuff you've worked on previously. After all, according to the IMDB, you've worked on projects with phrases like "Naked" and "Warriors" and "Fields of Terror" in the title. But "Charlie Jade" still sounds intriguing.
(And it may just be because it's after midnight, and I'm slightly drunk, but upon reading your IMDB page, I've decided the perfect title for a show can be found by combining some of your previous titles: "Naked Vampire Defenders Love House Calls.")
