Eberts Files – Tiresias

Hey everyone!

Well, from the initial posts it seems as though people enjoyed "Tiresias" quite a bit. This little tale involving greek mythology as a foundation was another early favorite of mine. The "fresh donuts" dream sequence was worth it alone. Also the relationships are becoming more fleshed out. All in all a great episode.

Here's a few dispatches about the episode...

First off, thank you for watching this new series. Every new episode takes you into a new direction. The fact that you're still here means that you like where we've been heading or you are willing to keeping trying. Thank you!

Robert Romanus who played Quinn, the GAO guy in the officials office is probably best know for his role in "Fast Times at Ridgemont High". He was wonderful to work with and made quite an impression on the crew. Many of them had their picture taken with him and one even had the picture turned into a T-Shirt.

The actor who played Scarbourgh (I'm sorry I can't remember his name, it's late and I don't want to look at the tape again.) is a dialogue coach in L.A. Some of his former pupils include Julia Roberts, Jack Nicholson and Warren Beatty, amongst many others. His ads claim he is the "Henry Higgins" of dialects. Hmmm....

Darien took the rat home with him. Unlike Survivor, he did not eat it.

Speaking of "Surivivor", Shannon Kenney a.k.a The Keeper will be crest fallen to learn that she has been voted off the Sci-Fi island. 😉

During our section where we were "cooking" the books, I choose to either write numbers or the alphabet. Eddie was writing a stream of words. What those were, only he knows...

I risked life and limb (or maybe just fingers) to try to stuff those papers in the shredder behind me. It was harder than it looked and took several takes before I got. They edited around it anyway.

Hobbes could very well qualify for the discus throw with his accurate flinging of that garbage can lid at Fawkes.

Well, that's all that I can think of for this episode. To be honest, this all seems like a skewed view of the show from a recurring character with a small part. With that in mind I offer a possible solution. While I'm sure that Vincent and the rest of the gang will be on soon for a moderated chat, if anyone has any mind-blowing question that I could pose to them, I'll try to pass it along this week. That way at least you can hear other viewpoints, a 'rashamon' on what I've been talking about. If you do have a question, please post in the reply and I'll see what I can do.

Thanks

Mike
