@jplonie Like a farmer takes care of sheep… until the abattoir truck arrives.

@SteveMolk @WarWraith Heh. It was all heaps of fun. I should probably pimp myself for more work like this.

via TweetDeck in reply to SteveMolk

@WarWraith @SteveMolk This is still one of my favourite small personal wins from episode 1. pic.twitter.com/kTUz88gpts

via TweetDeck in reply to WarWraith

@WarWraith @SteveMolk Also I think this ep started to show how Vertex is further up the pecking order than people might have guessed.

via TweetDeck in reply to WarWraith

@WarWraith @SteveMolk Oh indeed, it ain’t no Macguffin, it’s the whole box and dice, and also in E04 we see why Roth might want it.

via TweetDeck in reply to WarWraith

@jplonie Wot? (Also, I assume you know what jessies are in UK slang.)

via TweetDeck in reply to jplonie

@WarWraith @SteveMolk Thank you. That’s the first conceptualisation of the beast, I think, but there’s a lot of discussion after that.

via TweetDeck in reply to WarWraith

@jpwarren That was all there in S01 too. Have you seen the two sergeants’ body cams yet?

via TweetDeck in reply to jpwarren

@WarWraith @SteveMolk At that stage we were still bouncing around ideas, “What if?”, here’s some news stories, this is what Stuxnet did etc.

via TweetDeck in reply to WarWraith

@WarWraith @SteveMolk That’s from an email dated Aug 2014, and it’s comments on plot outlines, not even draft scripts yet.

via TweetDeck in reply to WarWraith

@WarWraith @SteveMolk It seems it was. Originally it came from AMRA (~=DARPA), i.e. research, but that’s now the op..twitter.com/i/web/status/7…za

via TweetDeck in reply to WarWraith

@WarWraith @SteveMolk Kinda. Sorta. I’m just looking back at the early drafts now.

via TweetDeck in reply to WarWraith

@SteveMolk @WarWraith So far the plot is how I remember. Some scenes in different locations, order, or whatever.

via TweetDeck in reply to SteveMolk

@WarWraith @SteveMolk I’ve just watched it tonight, and yeah, I’m so happy to see Kaspion fired up. :)

via TweetDeck in reply to WarWraith

@jpwarren Yep. That was conscious. “The audience knows than an elite hacker can do pretty much anything,” so get on with it.

via TweetDeck in reply to jpwarren

@SteveMolk @WarWraith … like 2 or 3 weeks before the first shooting script had to be ready for the director. Many open plot questions then.

via TweetDeck in reply to SteveMolk

@SteveMolk @WarWraith It’s all new for me as it airs. :) Shelley decided to re-plot the last ep the day before our last script meeting…

via TweetDeck in reply to SteveMolk

@SteveMolk @WarWraith Have you seen them all yet? Do you get that sort of access?

via TweetDeck in reply to SteveMolk

@BZB Hah! It’s not very exciting, trust me.

via TweetDeck in reply to BZB

@jpwarren IS there? Smirk. Makes sense. There’s a lot of attention to visual details. And yeah, the HUD is good, shows screen plus reaction.

via TweetDeck in reply to jpwarren

@rgmerk I’ve just found the draft phish. A cat grooming business he used, asking to use is cat photo in their promotion. Ego stroke!

via TweetDeck in reply to rgmerk

@rgmerk Yeah, the phish was great fun. But to go through all the steps to get into OCO would be terrible television.

via TweetDeck in reply to rgmerk

@jpwarren There is more cybering to come. In fact, significantly bigger cybering than S01.

via TweetDeck in reply to jpwarren

@jodiem I suspect you’ll like both Constance and Kaspion.

via TweetDeck in reply to jodiem

@rgmerk … the compromises of drama. Some people don’t get that it’s fiction, with on-screen metaphors, not a documentary.

via TweetDeck in reply to rgmerk

@rgmerk There’s certainly an element of that. We spent a lot time discussing how it would work, so I’m waiting to see how it ended up.

via TweetDeck in reply to rgmerk

@ChrissieM @BobGrrl I am being very careful to avoid giving out spoilers.

via TweetDeck in reply to ChrissieM

@mpesce Look, I didn’t pick the names. They changed quite a bit. OCO was originally called AMRA, but OCO is a much better name.

via TweetDeck in reply to mpesce

Constance is a good name for a cat, though, right?

via TweetDeck in reply to stilgherrian

But since people seem to be watching the sportsball, I’m probably talking into the void.

via TweetDeck in reply to stilgherrian

Since episodes 5 and (especially) 6 were being re-plotted after my last meeting, I’m not sure how much SCADAjoy we’ll experience.

via TweetDeck in reply to stilgherrian

Finally got around to watching “The Code” S02 E04. So our little friend ended up being called Kaspion. I like it. A good name.
