Jane Espenson is an awesome writer who has worked on shows like Buffy, Angel, Gilmore Girls
... oh, wait a second. There are no shows "like" Buffy, Angel
or Gilmore Girls
. Which is to say that she has had the sort of writing career that I would still envy if the shows I currently have in development all got greenlit at the same time
. And she is a fun and witty person. As you can tell from her blog.
Anyway, Jane just answered a nagging question I've had about act breaks in Gilmore Girls
You know how DMc
and other TV bloggers have gone on about act outs? The last moment before a commercial must
be a big "wow" moment, preferably one of great jeopardy? Gilmore Girls
don't do act outs. Jane esplains why.
Thank, you, Jane!
That's very interesting. And that might have something to do with why I never liked Gilmore Girls.
It always seemed poky-poky-clever-poky in a way that I didn't appreciate. I had room for one talky talky show in my viewing quiver at that point, and I chose West Wing.
Anyone else notice that they dropped Jane's name on "24" last night?
