Ep 153: “Schitt’s Creek”

July 06, 2021

We paddle through Eugene & Dan Levy’s “Schitt’s Creek” and discuss:

  • Cinematography: sitcom lighting;
  • Story & writing: the setup, the situation and why it works, characters and performances, deep dive into the arc of Alexis;
  • the Overton window, expanding cultural acceptance of once-provocative ideas;
  • and other such stuff and things and stuff.

“In the end a film can look lousy but work because of a great performance but not the other way round. That’s something always worth remembering.” – Roger Deakins
