Another script review has popped up on the internet, this time over at Tower of the Hand. Johnny was also able to get a copy of the pilot script and has some new and interesting takes on it. It sounds like it is the same draft as the one I read. With all these script reviews popping up, makes me think maybe we have a viral marketer trying to stir up interest in the pilot? Anyway, here is a snippet, hit up the above link for the full review.
The first episode remains faithful to the source material, but not stubbornly so. Scenes exist in the script that don’t take place in the book. Some of this is for convenience–there’s only sixty minutes to cram in all the details we need. Other changes take advantage of the visual medium that is television. Lots of dialogue and internal thoughts are omitted in favor of knowing looks and sidelong glances. It’s subtle, but effective.
