Entertainment Weekly Nov. 29 Print Copy - SY repeats show mantra
I don't know why I'm putting this in Spoilers. Did they give everyone associated with the show the same lines to learn and repeat......transcribed. I don't think it's on the website.
Entertainment Weekly on:
December 1, Midseason Finale
Between the plague at the prison, the banishment of Carol, and the Governor's return, the past few weeks have been busy ones for the characters on the zombie show. But Steven Yuen, who plays Glenn, says viewers will need to hold onto their cowboy-cop hats during the conclusion of this season's first half. "The finale is huge," he teases. "It's the story we've wanted to tell for the longest time. Everybody is going to be watching with their jaws dropped." Given that Glenn recently almost died of the plague, should we assume he at least is temporarily safe from the chop (and the undead chomp)? "You should never regard anyone as safe from any danger on this show."
In the world of entertainment, it's known as the hype-machine. Every show, movie, and even video games rely on it. All of the usual suspect terms: "Jaw-dropping," "Mind-blowing," "best yet," "most anticipated," "best yet," "A fantastic ride," "Most ambitious yet," etc, etc.
Have to maximize viewers to maximize advertisement revenue for AMC. Movies use it to try and set opening weekend records and video games use it to try and beat pre-order numbers.
