Script Alert!

Ain’t It Cool News’ very own Moriarty, aka Drew McWeeny, co-wrote the July 24th episode of “Fear Itself”. He talks about “Skin and Bones” here and links to the actual teleplay -- which will only be online until the 24th. The script is actually a pretty good read, especially when you consider that it was completed in six days -- two of those six days were spent making revisions based on network notes. Cool insight into the process...

Thanks for the link, btw, check the link. I think your website address is in the link by accident.

Thanks for catching that.

Super cool! However, I can't bear to click on the link...I love to be surprised. But so good to know that it looks like a winner of a script.

Maybe the 6-day writing schedule is what has plagued a lot of these episodes. They wanted quick turnaround, and you aren't going to get a heck of a lot of time for revisions with a 6-day schedule. Thus, the sort-of-misses-the-mark feeling we've had.

Looking forward to the ep. on the 24th! And this Thursday's zombie ep!

I wouldn't exactly call the script a winner. Good concept but as usual, lacks a strong ending. You're probably right about the schedule. This particular teleplay was written just before the writer's strike.
