- Mom: *watching NCIS* I HATE SEASON FINALES!!!
- Me: *passing through the room* I know that feel, Mom. I know that feel.
From time to time, EIC honors a special production that is a breakthrough of its kind by awarding it the EIC President’s Award. The last time we did this was for the first season of “Intervention.”
This year we bestow this award to the new television series “Elementary.” “Elementary” is a breakthrough series that takes the next logical step beyond “Intervention” to interweave stories of addiction and recovery in subtle ways into the ongoing fabric of the series and its characters rather than through a special episode or limited story arc.
We feel this is an achievement worthy of recognition with the 2013 EIC President’s Award.
I just tried to type up my thoughts about Spartacus, but I only got two lines down before I gave up and saved the post to my drafts.
I can’t yet.
Can you talk about the relationship between Ragnar and Athelstan and how that’s going to develop over the season?
Travis Fimmel: That’s one of my favorite relationships too. He’s such a good actor. George, he is fantastic. I am going to throw something at him (picks up the card on the table). Do you need this? (Throws it at George Blagden who is interviewing with other people). But some of my favorite scenes are with him; we really develop into a big relationship…(Something is thrown at Travis by George and Travis picks it up). Grow up George!
Alright! It’s a cork. I threw this at him last night. It’s from last night’s dinner! But I absolutely love their relationship and it really develops. We get into a great friendship and I finally have someone I can really confide in, you know. x
im totally going to watch vikings tonight
The interview that George was conducting, would likely be this one:
Question: Now that you’re done with Season One, is there anything you’d go back and tell yourself on Day One of filming?
BLAGDEN: There’s hundreds of things. This is my first television show, so there are so many things that I learned in the six months in Ireland. [Travis Fimmel throws a placard at George from another table] That being one of them. Always expect the unexpected. Ah, cheers. [the placard is put away] I’m sorry, it’s getting really rowdy in here. I’m sorry. This is tame compared to what it’s like on set. You know how there’s a rope around my neck for a good couple of episodes? They used to tie me to things without me knowing, so like we’d be in between takes, and he’d tie me to a pillar and walk off, and everyone else would know, and then I’d set off on my take and be strangled. He’s great, he’s a prankster, he’s great. What was the question again?
