If you actually did want to know something technical or something behind the scenes regarding the filming of Outlander, what would you want to know?
I would love to be a fly on the wall of the writer’s room. As someone who loves to write, I’d be fascinated to see the different methods they employ, especially in a collaborative environment, and how they truly interpret, translate, and either use or discard the source material. Every writing team has to put an episode to bed feeling it’s cohesive and complete storytelling, but I don’t think there’s a show that exists that hasn’t had their WTF moments. It would be interesting to know the thought process behind things that fall flat or are not well-received by the audience.
Edited to add: I’d also like to see if their process is anything like mine.
Coffee. Write. Write. Backspace. Coffee. Write. Backspace. Stare into the fridge willing good snacks to appear. Write. Write. Coffee. Write. Backspace the terrible spelling that comes with twitchy typing borne of three cups of coffee. Snacks. Write. Wander off to think about shit. Coffee. Backspace. Try and make toast. Write. Write. Write. Write. Backspace. Write. Realize the cold, hard bread is still in the toaster. Write.
