“From the beginning, we were concerned about casting, the issue of race. What we realized is that this story is functioning at the level of myth, and as a mythical story, the race of the individuals doesn’t matter. They’re supposed to be stand-ins for all people. Either you end up with a Bennetton ad or the crew of the Starship Enterprise.”
“You either try to put everything in there, which just calls attention to it, or you just say, “Let’s make that not a factor, because we’re trying to deal with everyman.” Looking at this story through that kind of lens is the same as saying, “Would the ark float and is it big enough to get all the species in there?” That’s irrelevant to the questions because the questions are operating on a different plane than that; they’re operating on the mythical plane.”
lol Racist Brenda. ;)
That said, most people I chat with are pretty good about not overtly spoiling, and tagging spoilers appropriately, (Well, everyone except !! <SOB>).
Yes, there are rules, and most nice people obey them. But The people who bitch because you are staring at Twitter while both viewers AND actors and producers and writers and channels are livetweeting shows? Your problem. Filter ur feeds.
I am here for the conversation, the discussion, the debate. Feel free to add me to your Circles, and feel free to comment on my posts, for this is how we get to know each other and this is how we learn about our worlds.
