I love these reviews - even the ones that take time to point out the problems - but I never expected to do so well in reruns!

I hardly know difference between spec script and shooting one, but after finally getting your piece in PDF so I could get a quick read, I zipped through meat of it all. I especially liked the deliveries, the scene with Prof Subcheck probably my favorite, with the bedroom scene mixed in it made it good tale with building tension. Since it was an end of the world story, didn’t take long to figure out what was going on. I... Show more

Of course you're right.

Most actors only see a shooting script but, having done coverage on literally hundreds of spec scripts, I've seen all sorts of things slipped in between the lines of the usual format.

In this case, knowing the readership here, I chose to explain things a bit more in detail - without going beyond the range of acceptable format.

It's so much easier for the art department and special effects folks to have... Show more

for votes, I had to return and finish the reading - even had I not, I would have voted for your offering. I second Kenneth thoughts.
