YOU GRADE IT
C: Yeah, it was. SL: And Bruce McDonald, who directed episode six, he's like the Kevin Smith of Canada. He's one of the pre-eminent independent film directors up here, so he brings, visually, a style to the show that I just loved. So, huh, where was I going with that? C: I don't know. [Laughs]You're tired. SL: I was saying that, yeah, when I saw five and six I was like, okay, we're finally settling in, now, we've finally settled in, we've hit our stride. For us, as actors, you know, it's a weird experience, to be with a character for nine months, and then take some time off, play other characters, and then have to come back and pick it back up again. It's tough to get back into it in some ways. So while the first two eps [this season] had some very strong moments in [them], my personal opinion was that they were not our best. C: Agreed. SL: And I think we're on a roll now after episode four, which dare I say it, was fun for us, despite what Ted went through. C: Well, you know, everybody's been there, one way or the other. SL: Everybody's been a pity fuck? Oh, I hope not. See, now we're getting into -- C: [Gasping] No! Not me! SL: Oh, nice! C: I mean[laughs], people I know. SL: Oh, of course. [Laughs] And I have to say I was disappointed. I was going to surprise you with some stuff today. C: Ooh, like what?! SL: But given the bad nature of our schedule, it couldn't happen. Well, we were planning on staging this fake thing where Gale, Peter, and Randy were going to stop by my apartment at different times, like this was something we do all the time. C: Is it something that you do all the time? Because we need to know. SL: We do -- I mean, we do hang out together. But we wanted to stage a little thing where they'd come over and you could talk to them as well. C: That would have been really cool. SL: But unfortunately, everybody's asleep. I know, I know! But you can talk to them on your own, I'm sure they'd love to talk to you on their own at some point in the future. C: That would be great. Let them know. SL: I will, indeed. But, yeah, you know, I think you're doing a good job. And it keeps us honest in some ways. [Laughs] And it's good -- you know, I would kind of prefer the perspective that you bring to the show instead of someone always coming up and going, [in a valley girl voice] "Oh, the show's awesome! You're so hot!"
