Link: What happened?!?!?! – The 7 Line

t7l skull

Good morning.

I’m linking to this because @mediagoon did a post yesterday about the T7L outing selling out in a minute, so I feel like we should publish the sequel.  The purpose of this post is not to give Darren crap but to follow up on a story, as it seems that there may have been a technical hiccup related to the one minute sellout.

Darren well explains himself, click the link.

And again, we over here majorly support T7L and think what Darren has created is just awesome and even more importantly (to me) we really like The Guy.  I could see a similar company being run by a douche, but Darren is no douche.

Source: R.A. Dickey filmed scenes for “devastating” Mets season finale

winter is coming

Leaked still frame from the recent shoot.

A source very close to the long running television series Mets tells us that R.A. Dickey recently filmed some scenes for the season 54 finale.

It has been a tumultuous season for the long running series.  Critics of the show shredded the first half of the season, claiming it was boring and more of the same old same old. Neither fans nor the network reacted well to a long arc involving David Wright facing a career ending injury, a plot line that was suddenly forgotten during a mid-season reboot.

With new characters, including the charismatic Yoenis Cespedes, a gimmicky episode involving a parakeet, an emotional episode with Wilmer Flores, and the return of Wright to the main stable of characters, fans of the show are now saying that season 54 is one of the best seasons ever, ratings are up, and the network has picked up their option for up to an additional 19 episodes which will allow them to extend the season into November.

But not everything has been rosy behind the scenes.  “Greg has had a rough year, “our insider tells us.

“He thought the Wright arc would be very dramatic, but fans didn’t react well to it.  The network wanted him to do a big season-long story about Matt Harvey’s return, but he felt that was kind of hacky and was probably right.  His #2 (assistant show runner Jason Fry) has been distracted by a new side project and hasn’t been there to punch up the writing, and I think you saw the effect of that a lot in the May and June episodes.  There was just no edge.”

“The mid-season reboot was Greg’s idea.  Basically he said if you want a good show you have to give me some stars who can act or I’m out of here.  They brought in Yoenis, but for a minute I thought Greg was gone.”

“Things were better for a few weeks but with the ratings up the network leaned on him for a ‘stunning’ finale to generate interest for season 55, and well…it’s devastating.  They’re all-in on these extra episodes and what them to be as good as the Houston/Boston episodes from the show’s golden era.  Greg’s feeling the pressure to top Buckner so it’s almost like ‘ok you want stunning, you got it.’  It’s absolutely devastating.”

Sources say Dickey would only agree to do the episode if his character had a very big moment.   The season finale of Mets, titled “Winter Is Coming”, airs Wednesday November 4th.
