Just watched Charlie Jade
#19. We brought it home on that one. Wow. A hell of an episode. The actors knew who they were. Particularly fine work by Marie-Julie Rivest, in addition to all the regularly superb actors. Michelle Burgess was incredibly, Rolanda Marais was superb, David Dennis was brilliant, and the usually terrific core cast were better than they'd ever been. This episode, with the shockingly good Eric Canuel directing, really went to town on Bob's vision, and Bob and Simon's editing made it magic. You'll see my name on the script, but like every other script this involved the whole group, starting with the story we all broke together. I make a point of not remembering who did what but there are some brilliant DMc lines in there, I just can't remember which ones...
Sorry to kvell like this, but I'm feeling good. Thank the Goddess I got that call to go to Cape Town... and bless you, Robin Spry, for sending me down there.
I can't wait to see #20... I haven't seen a scrap of footage on that one.
Agreed. Loved this episode.
Well done to everyone.
My favorite line in the episode is the one I know I had zero to do with:
"Your death is important to us."
Yeah, that line made me burst out laughing. I agree with you guys that this episode of CJ was superb in every respect. Of course I cried at the end...(SPOILER, don't read on if you haven't seen it)...when Charlie said good-bye to Jasmine and returned to Blues in Betaverse. I was happy and yet, a little sad, too. It is a time of endings and new beginnings. Destiny fulfilled with subtle hints of danger ahead. (END SPOILER)
I'm going to miss this show a great deal after the final ep airs this coming Saturday, and I hope/pray that it will get the go ahead for another season. There's been nothing quite like this series on English television before. Sexy, stylish, and innovative, Charlie Jade is a unique masterpiece of sci-fi storytelling.
